The Pink Flamingo will tantalise and tease, whilst delivering a formidable cast of elite performers that have been handpicked from around the globe to amuse audiences with show-stopping sizzle amongst lavish pretty-as-pink Art Deco surrounds.
Penned as Australia’s hottest new cabaret theatre and creative hub, The Pink Flamingo will become an entertainment icon nationally and abroad, set to lure an assortment of sins and heavenly pleasures when it opens August-2019.
Expect daredevil stunts, spellbinding Aerial Angels, world-class dance and vocals and mind- blowing acrobatics with a healthy pour of cabaret comedy. The Pink Flamingo is the newest ‘must do’ experience for locals and visitors alike!
An impressive 20-metre custom designed LED screen will feature as a backdrop and will project artistic visual displays certain to enthral. Add pulsating live beats from international musicians and DJ’s…. meet The Pink Flamingo in all her glory!
“Think of the fully produced theatre shows you would expect to see in cities such as New York, Las Vegas, Paris and Berlin – this calibre of entertainment has been missing on the Gold Coast”, says co-owner Sue Porrett.
“The Gold Coast is world-renowned as a holiday and entertainment destination and yet, there are very few live shows available on a regular basis. The Pink Flamingo will become the city’s premier playground for the young-at-heart. 18 to 108 we will entertain! Our annual shows will have a universal thread that is sure to amuse and entertain flocks from all walks of the world and life!” Porrett adds.
As you enter the striking and extravagant Pink Flamingo, you’ll discover decadent 1920’s Art Deco styling at every turn with a modern twist. From the unmissable pink velvet furnishings, carefully crafted flooring, geometric light fittings and splashes of metallic gold – you can’t help but feel that Marilyn Monroe would approve of sipping Champagne in such a seductively-cute cabaret theatre.
Guests are invited to quench their thirst at the signature Pink AIX Rose Bar or the MUMM Bubbles & Feathers Bar before flocking to their assigned luxe pink velvet seats, table settings with soft LED mood lighting or lavish pink booths in an intimate boutique setting.
The two-storey 797 m2 landmark Pink Flamingo, located on the corner of 88 Surf Parade and Victoria Ave Broadbeach will seat over 250 guests! The mesmerizing theatre shows will be performed on a state-of-the-art 4 metre diameter stage which will create a fabulous up close and intimate experience for guests. Furthermore, the intelligent stage lighting, special effects and surround sound will deliver a fully immersive entertainment experience.
No expense has been spared!
‘The Birdcage’ on Level Two boasts premier viewing for the awe-inspiring show, while also catering for corporate soirees and stylish private functions in a setting that would delight even the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio! Who doesn’t love the Champagne lifestyle?
“In hospitality a well-considered designed venue is a sign of respect. I’m proud to say that I have always created trends and I have never followed them. I have taken risks from décor to entertainment always delivering service excellence. I believe people should be entertained – truly entertained and that’s our job not the job of the guest! The Pink Flamingo is bringing out the very best in me and this is by far the most exciting venue that I have been involved in…ever!” said co-owner Tony Rigas.
This eclectic playground of creativity, talent, sass and sophistication will deliver a fully immersive experience that will have guests wanting to return again and again. The esteemed team behind The Pink Flamingo have set the bar high and will certainly deliver on what is expected and beyond.
A new world of entertainment is flocking coming.
