Acme Lighting Pump up Australia’s First Luxury Rooftop Precinct Cali Beach
Cali Beach is Australia’s first luxury beachside rooftop precinct and is unlike any other venue in Australia. The brand-new entertainment destination towers four stories above street level and is spread over an expansive 5,000 square metres of prime rooftop space. It boasts a spectacular outlook over Surfers Paradise beach and unparalleled views of the Surfers Paradise skyline.
“Our aim was to deliver a luxury hospitality experience that will surpass anything currently available in Australia,” says Managing Partner of Artesian Hospitality, Matthew Keegan. “Given its scale, Cali Beach was a significant investment for our group, with development taking just under twelve months and costing almost $10 million. it’s a landmark venue for all of Australia that epitomises our commitment to creating unique experiences which exceeded all expectations!”
For a beachside, outdoor venue, the technical requirements for all AVL equipment to perform in sunlight, all weather and salt air, are more complex. Weather it’s a sunny 35-degree day, a chilly 10-degree night or a cloudy, rainy afternoon, the equipment are able to adjust to those circumstances so the customers can enjoy the same first-class experience”. Twelve Acme CETUS IP65 rated moving lights have been used to provide the main lighting element for the venue, lighting up the sky with powerful beams at night and helping to create atmosphere around the pool and dance floor. Dotted around the venue are 32 Acme Stage PAR Colour IP66 rated static fixtures, used to highlight the decoration of the venue during both day and night. “There are two CO2 jets, five fog machines, and six flame machines,” reports Nathan. These are being used for special effects during choreographed shows and DJ performances, as well as being fired up for special occasions and celebrations happening at the venue.
To everyone in Australia that’s looking for an escape I’d say come relax, eat, drink, play and embrace life at Cali Beach,” said Matthew Keegan.“This is exactly what Surfers Paradise and our city needs. I applaud the team behind this development as it will be a beacon for locals and visitors. I look forward to seeing the evolution of Cali Beach into one of those must-visit destinations year-round”, comments Tom Tate, Mayor at City of Gold Coast.
