Just a month after its launch, the Coast’s newest funky Arts Bar the Fun Haus Factory has already established itself as an eclectic and vibrant space bringing contemporary arts, live music and culture to the region each week.
The new venue in Gosford offers everything from contemporary live music every Sunday to touring cabarets and theatre on Fridays, resident DJs on Saturdays and locals nights on Thursdays with cheap eats.
This Friday, November 17, will see a global music treat with Hot Sauce, a Family friendly DJ Event with tacos, cheap drinks and a focus on contemporary sounds from across the planet with genres steaming from the Reggaeton, hip hop and Latin pop to Baile funk, Bossa Nova and Afro Latin House tilting right through to Dancehall, Bollywood, Kuduro and beyond.
Saturday brings the already popular weekly Dogs on the Deck dog-friendly afternoon.
Dog owners are encouraged to take their pooches for a walk in Kibble Park and then drop in for cold bevy and a Mexican dinner on the deck from 5pm-7pm (happy hour from 5pm with $10 cocktails) before the Central Coast House Music Collective with guest DJs Winston and Ferrero takes you into the evening.
Every Sunday sees free live music with the Sonic Sunday events exploring all music genres from rock, electro, punk, blues and swing to world and folk.
Kicking off from midday for lunch, this week’s event on Sunday, November 19, will feature Donné Restom.
The local young musician paints with vocals in broad, impressionistic colours that recall the golden era of jazz vocals as she blends jazz and pop.
Her smoky, evocative voice recalls modern greats like Amy Winehouse, though she is more enamoured with Nina Simone, Anita O’Day and the Mingus Big Band.
Mexican City Street food with Chilangos Hermanos is available Thursday to Saturday for dinner and Sundays for lunch with a fully stocked bar.
All events this coming weekend are free with tickets available at naughtynoodle.com.au/whats-on
