Giddy about new look to be unveiled to public today

IT'S been six months of hard work, but now Karl and Georgina Schamburg are ready to show everyone what they've been working on.

The area above The Giddy Goat has been undergoing renovations since December and will open this afternoon.

The Giddy Goat owners gave The Morning Bulletin an exclusive tour of their new outside bar and eating area, cocktail lounge and nightclub yesterday.

Karl said they had noticed a gap in the market when it came to offering something for everyone in the one premises.

"There's Melba's Lounge for those in the mood for cocktails, the patio bar is outside and there's a main nightclub," Karl said.

The husband and wife duo were excited to get the chance to expand their premises, which already has a cafe and sports bar on the corner of East and William Sts.

"We were leasing the upstairs, which was previously a nightclub, but when the opportunity came up we decided to renovate," Karl said.

The Giddy Goat's upstairs area will be open to the public from 4.30pm today.
