Canberra has a new place to party the night away, with a new bar and nightclub opening in Belconnen.

Boardwalk Bar & Nightclub on Emu Bank at Belconnen will throw open its doors on Thursday 29 March.

While the fitout is still a closely guarded secret, the opening night act has been revealed as Soul Sistas, the reigning queens of Canberra’s DJ scene.

As individual artists in their own right, Soul Sistas AKA Lipgloss and Fresh Princess, put on an amazing performance and they switch it up with each other, making people see double. With experience playing interstate and internationally across RnB, Hip Hop, Pop, Funk and even Bollywood, these divas have a mood for every occasion and are sure to bring it on Boardwalk’s opening night.

Owner Peter Dorree said Boardwalk is what “I’ve been working towards my whole life”.

“It’s everything I have always wanted,” he wrote in a social post. “I am feeling extremely humble and such a lucky man right now.”

So put it the date in your diary, Canberra, and get ready to enjoy the newest place to party!
