Your Summer Oasis with Diablo
Deb Caruso discovers the perfect place to spend summer days – live music, refreshing drinks, food trucks and a few wild animals thrown in for fun!
Diablo Co has built a strong following for its Alcoholic Ginger Beer made from 100% Queensland ingredients.
The creation of Dimitris Limnatitis, Diablo Co also has a range of mouth-watering spirits and liqueurs that are screaming out to be crushed, shaken and stirred in deliciously refreshing cocktails.
The man behind much-loved venues such as SolBar, The Nautical and Rooftop Bar, Dimi understands the key ingredients to a good time.
“You have to have premium drinks that satisfy your thirst and an environment that allows for the creation of good times,” Dimi said. “Diablo Oasis is a great space for all ages with a relaxed and family-friendly vibe.
“We have games for kids, some of the Coast’s best musicians, food trucks and of course, the spirit of Queensland with our range of Diablo Co drinks.”
In true Dimi style he has also provided the opportunity for other local businesses to benefit. From featuring local craft beers on tap to live music and the food truck operators such as The Pad Thai Guy and Just Steak It who will feature in December.
Dimi is also a good neighbour with the team from Wildlife HQ always welcome to bring some of the animals to visit. From snakes to Quokkas, the handlers enjoy sharing their passion for animals with the Diablo Co devotees.
Making use of the elevated site just next to the Diablo HQ and behind the Big Pineapple, Dimi has literally created an oasis. With beautiful shady trees, the iconic red and white striped Diablo Co umbrellas, bean bags and more, Diablo Oasis offers a venue that is as cool as the cocktails on offer.
“Being an outdoor venue, we are family friendly, including the four-legged kind,” Dimi said. “Our whole aim is to provide a space where people and their pets can come together and enjoy a great day out.”
