THE CALILE HOTEL’S FASHION FLAGSHIPS ANNOUNCED
By now most Brisbanites have heard about the boutique hotel set to transform New Farm’s James Street into an iconic luxury destination. But did you know that come springtime the hotel’s ground-floor precinct will be home to some of Australia’s best retail flagship stores? Along with stand-out designers Dion Lee, Bassike, Bec + Bridge and Dutch lingerie brand Love Stories, Sydney-siders Venroy are finally crossing the border and heading to the sunshine state! Dreamed up by two young local entrepreneurs, the brand is well known for their linen and fresh take on Australian leisurewear. With three stores in Sydney and a huge online presence, Unita are proud to be delivering the interior fitout of the brand’s first Queensland store. And what better place to hit first than The Calile Hotel! James Street you ready?
AUSTRALIA’S FAVOURITE ITALIAN IS COMING TO CHERMSIDE
Traditional Italian food and family values meets contemporary dining? Yes, please! A repeat winner of ‘Australia’s Favourite Italian’ in the Lifestyle Food Awards, the Criniti’s brand is making its way to Westfield Chermside! Delighting customers in NSW for over 15 years, the Chermside venue will give Queenslanders their first taste of Criniti’s famous Italian-fare. With nine restaurants already operating across Australia, the popularity of the brand continues to soar. Now setting their sights further afield the brand plans to expand nationally across regional NSW, QLD and WA. Unita’s Sydney shopfitting team has been lucky enough to deliver the fitout of Criniti’s latest two venues in Wollongong and Kirawee. Now it’s our Brisbane team’s turn to deliver – we can’t wait.

MERCEDES BENZ IS OPENING A CAFE AND RESTAURANT
Back in 1800s the founder of Mercedes-Benz, Karl Benz, came up with the term ‘motorwagon’ to describe the world’s very first petrol-powered motor car. Fast-forward to 2018 and the name Motorwagon will soon have a new meaning in Brisbane…restaurant! The impressive venue is set to open next week as part of the Mercedes-Benz showroom being built on Adelaide St in the CBD golden-triangle. Designed by KP Architects, the Unita team are currently in the final stages of completing the venue’s high-end interior fitout. Excitingly for Brisbane, the venture will be the brand’s first Australian boutique retail offering. Customers will be able to book test drives, have their car serviced and even buy merchandise. The restaurant aims to reflect Mercedes-Benz’s core values of craftsmanship and innovation and will be showcasing the best in sustainable local produce. Great cars, great food and great service – what more could we ask for!
B.LUCKY & SONS BRINGING FOOD, FUN & FORTUNE TO FORTITUDE VALLEY
Your inner child will be jumping for joy when B.Lucky & Sons opens its doors later this year! Coming to Fortitude Valley in September, the arcade game and bar venue is the brainchild of Funlab – the creative minds behind Strike Bowling Bar and Holey Moley Golf Club. The fitout of the brand’s first location in Melbourne Central is already underway with Unita’s shopfitting team set to commence works at the Valley site in the coming weeks. Described as ‘the adult playground you never knew you were missing’ the venues are fully equipped with a host of unique games, cocktail bar and dining menu. Thankfully Brisbane fun-seekers won’t have to wait too long for their chance to try it out – launch day is just over a month away!
