The Queen of the hospitality scene, the lady of the Moubarak Brothers, the princess of the Moubment Group: Dame Katie Moubarak. From Mero Kitchen & Bar in Indooroopilly to the Hatch & Co‘s in Garden City and Gasworks, Newstead; Gerard’s Bar and Gerard’s Bistro, Fortitude Valley; Lychee Lounge in West End, and Laruche in the heart of nightclub central: each establishment is a glittering gem on an ornate crown; shining brilliantly under the Moubs banner.
And Katie is always fashionably leading the way as she curates the choicest ambiance, be it from the bar to the kitchen and the dancefloor. It’s an innate sense of warmth and generosity, no doubt provoked from her Lebanese traditions with that right touch, that knows how to pick superlative sounds for entertainment – particularly at Laruche. Host to a behemoth of underground names behind the decks, from Soul Clap to Nick Monaco, Ian Pooley, Jordan Rakei, Alex Dimitriades, A Guy Called Gerald along with favourite GG Magree amongst our living local legends, the Laruche dancefloor is the place to jump. And for the ABSOLUT. Summer Series, Katie has designed a most suitable atmosphere of cocktails to get the party started, and the dancefloor beats to keep it going.
With the epic announcement of the final ABSOLUT. Summer Nights seeing US Sound Spectral Wizard Seth Troxler hit the decks this Friday night, MyCityLife sits down with Lady Moubarak and chat Laruche’s Top 5 ABSOLUT. Tracks For The Dancefloor.
