Criterion’s retro nights a hit

NIGHT-LIFE in Maryborough has taken a step back in time that has never been so much fun.

Going backward is so forward at the Criterion’s Rewind retro night, a monthly event that has proven to be a hit with locals.

Revellers enter a time warp for the night, with all the best and daggiest party tunes from the ’70s to the noughties.

The idea was conceived as part of the Criterion’s new entertainment line-up, according to promotions manager Brendan Heit.

He said Rewind was created after listening to feedback from Criterion Hotel customers who were asking for a light-hearted, fun party night.

“We want to have something different happening each weekend, appealing to different demographics,” he said.

“Our Rewind nights are an awesome way for us to include people of all ages in the party.

“These nights are also becoming increasingly popular as a destination for hens’ nights.”

Mr Heit said the nights were attracting a loyal following from the “not so young ones” who were more than happy to pull on the bell bottoms and floral shirts to get into the retro party mode.

This weekend the Criterion Hotel will be activating its time machine and heading back as far as customers can handle.

It’s on tomorrow from 9pm at the hotel, on Wharf Street.
