A new bar-restaurant at the Paris end of Hastings Street in trendy Noosa is making waves. According to locals and tourists alike, Miss Moneypenny's chic, thoughtfully designed décor has added a real touch of sophistication to the popular Hastings Street strip.

Britton Timber’s Ross McKelvie says Miss Moneypenny’s features a broad array of timbers – continuing the recent trend for timber-based retail fit-outs.

"Miss Moneypenny's is a real showcase for a number of timbers. We supplied local company Aussie Fitouts with Pine, Blackbutt and Tasmanian Oak for everything from architraves to panelling and Bars and bench tops to external cladding."

The result, for those lucky enough to relax in Miss Moneypenny’s with a long cool drink, has been well worth it. The new bar-restaurant is winning praise for its cool, classy interior which offers a refreshing break from the crush of crowds and the Noosa sun.

Ross McKelvie says the future in Queensland for timber fit-outs is bright, with developers and architects increasingly choosing a variety of complementary timbers and finishes to create a specific atmosphere. In the case of Miss Moneypenny’s, the combination of informed and creative design and the right timbers, has created – dare we suggest it – an unbeatable bond.
