It’s Cuban. It’s Latin. It’s Hey Chica! and it’s coming to Fortitude Valley this year.
Hey Chica! ain’t no catcall. It’s the newest venture from the Hallmark Group—the team behind crowd favourites Retro’s Cocktail Lounge, Lefty’s Music Hall and Finn McCool’s Irish Bar—that’s currently under construction in Brunswick Street Mall and when it opens, you’ll be the one calling out its name.
Taking over the space vacated by Beirne Lane, Hey Chica! will be a trip to Havana, Cuba and Brissy’s port of call for latin delights. And with a $2m dollar fit out that will blast the place with colour and and more than a hint of the Caribbean, expect social club vibes, street food bites and tropical cocktails that pair perfectly with our own postcard-perfect climate.
While much of what Hey Chica! will entail is being kept under wraps for now, if it’s anything like Hallmark’s other venues, it’s going to be plenty of fun. Hey Chica! might just be the closest we’ll get to a Latin American escape this year.
Slated to open its doors towards the end of our winter, the name Hey Chica! is already getting its fair share of buzz, which makes it seem like opening night will be an epic party.
If you’re keen on being invited to launch night and letting loose some dance moves while sipping on daiquiris, mojitos and Cuba libres (we imagine), all you’ve got to do is sign up to Hey Chica!’s mailing list. Do that here and let the good times roll.
