Five Questions for the creators of Holey Moley

26 Oct 2018

What was the inspiration behind Holey Moley – was it inspired by other venues or experiences?

While we've taken inspiration from other venues offering mini-golf with a twist, we've put our own unique spin on it, through the use of memorable pop culture holes (The Simpsons, Jaws etc) that bring the nostalgia out in all of us, young and old.

How has the “grammable” theme influenced the design of Holey Moley?

From top to bottom, the goal of Holey Moley was to take things to a new level and ensure no-one leaves Holey Moley without having the most memorable experience possible. There's neon, pictures of favourite NZ celebrities and a whole range of 27 pop culture holes, that all belong on your Instagram feed!

What style of food are you serving and how does it fit into the “grammable” theme?

We serve a range of food that's perfect for Instagram, as well as delicious to boot!

Apart from mini-golf, what other activities are available at Holey Moley – would non-golfers still enjoy the experience?

Absolutely! Even if you're not a golf pro, we offer a delicious range of snacks, burgers and cocktails; as well as a range of craft beers on tap. In addition, we have live DJs and much more every night, ensuring that if you're better off the green, you can still get the party started.

Are interactive and 'grammable' spaces the way of the future?

People can have an amazing burger or cocktail in a wide range of bars and restaurants in Auckland, but we think it's incredibly important to always make sure every experience is different and something that you want to capture and share with friends.

From the colour of our burger buns, the decor and fitout as well as the cocktails, we're always trying to take things up to 11 to ensure that every second you spend inside Holey Moley is an experience to be remembered. 

Through our years operating other brands like Strike Bowling Bar and Skyzone, we believe that 'fun-tainment' is an emerging and growing concept that helps distinguish experiences and venues and provides an added layer of interest (and most importantly content!) for a generation that wants something different. We think this is incredibly important for Funlab's continued growth, which now includes new brands such as Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq and B Lucky & Sons that take the 'fun-tainment' concept to a whole new level.
