Venue Shortlists Revealed – Eat Drink Design Awards 2020


The annual Eat Drink Design Awards for design excellence and innovation for hospitality venues for Australian and New Zealand have been announced.

The short lists for 2020 included a number of Queensland venues that were able to provide a sense of space and value for customers in this time of uncertainty and business closure.

The Eat Drink Design Awards recognises all shapes, sizes and types of food and beverage outlets and the visual impact and retail presence they provide.

The 2019 event was held at the Metropolis, a New York loft-style space on the banks of the Yarra River with views of Melbourne.

Entry Requirements
-The venue design or visual identity must be for food and beverage as its primarily use
-The projects must have been completed between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2020
-The venue must not have been entered into this awards program before.

“Perhaps it is no coincidence that in a time of such upheaval, we have seen designers create spaces that provide familiarity in their appearance and comfort in their feel. Many venues appeared to be in search of an air of nostalgia in their design, with many showcasing a modern take on traditional spaces. This year’s designers have one foot in the past whilst firmly looking towards the future.” – Cassie Hansen, Jury Chair.

The 2018 event was held at Luminare, an industrial-chic location with a New York flavour and glances of Melbourne.
The 2017 event was held at the Pavilion, located at the Arts Centre Melbourne.
