If gourmet food, good vibes and live music sound like your thing, Boardwalk Social is your jam.

This market-style food and beverage hub is the stomping ground for all things delicious. The food is inspired by great gastro pub classics with a focus on local ingredients (more than 80% of the produce is local!).

Take your pick of food from the land, the sea or that comes in a bun, nourishing salads, pizza, tacos, sides or go straight for dessert! Beverages are plentiful! The extensive menu featuring local brews and nips will wet your thirst with 36 beer taps and 40 gins available.

This tasty precinct is a daily hive of activity; an eclectic home for live music, performances and local and touring DJs. With large communal areas, a convivial atmosphere and a video wall for screening live sports events, Boardwalk Social sets the perfect scene for socialising.

Bring your peeps for some seriously good eats and vibes before rolling home (you know it’s true).

If takeaway's more your style, take a stroll along the Esplanade to The Chicken Shop. Serving up locally sourced chicken, soaked in a wet brine for 12-hours and cooked on our rotisserie, creating a juicy sensation dancing on your taste buds.
