NightQuarter entertainment and hospitality precinct closes on Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast’s recovering music industry has been hit hard with the region’s biggest music venue suddenly closing its doors for good.

NightQuarter owner Michelle Christoe said Birtinya’s entertainment district has been hit hard by economic slowdowns from the COVID-19 pandemic, floods and rising costs of living.

“We are heartbroken,” Ms Christoe said in a statement.

“We sold our house and put it into business to help us at this time.

“However, attendance rates for live music events and night markets have not changed due to COVID and we are desperate.”

The 150,000 square foot facility was built from shipping containers and opened during the pandemic in November 2020.

The owners operated a similar location on the Gold Coast from 2015 to 2019.
