The Gold Coast’s newest dining destination is set to open its doors next month; Coast Beach Bar & Kitchen is only steps from Surfers Paradise Beach and boasts a 110 seat restaurant and 160 seat beach bar with uninterrupted ocean views.
Located in the new Meriton Suites on the Surfers Paradise Esplanade, the venue is the latest venture from hospitality duo Justin and Elizabeth Allie, the people behind local staples like Longboards Laidback Eatery and Bar, The Fish Shak and catering company Gourmet en Counter.
“We have been strong investors in the Gold Coast hospitality industry since 2007 with our current venues, and now with this $2.5million Coast Beach Bar & Kitchen project, it will be our biggest commitment and best yet,” said Justin
The 750 sqm venue will adorn the hotel’s first floor with its sophisticated design and dining space, boasting a stunning restaurant and bar with multiple spaces for wining and dining throughout, showcasing uninterrupted ocean views from its expansive bar.
Mr Allie said the food philosophy was quite simple, with a fresh, local emphasis, using only the best seasonal produce available.
“Our focus at Coast is to utilise fresh regionally sourced ingredients. Our menu will feature a variety of share style dining options with a large focus on land and sea produce, cooked in our signature Josper wood and charcoal oven.”
“Star dishes will include Chef’s in house aged cut of beef smoked at the table, or our duck liver parfait stuffed brioche doughnuts. Our menu will also cater to all, with extensive vegetarian options on offer.”
“The use of the Josper – a traditional Spanish charcoal oven – delivers a bespoke smoked flavour, sealing in the aromas and moisture to deliver exceptional gastronomical menu options,” added Justin.
The venue will also exhibit a 2,000 strong wine bottle cellar that will take centre stage in the restaurant, offering up to 120 wines, with roughly 80 per cent of the collection featuring Australian wines from only the best various grape-growing regions in the country.
Also with a stunning drawcard for those partial to a fine wine or two is the venue’s feature collection, a 26-year vertical Penfolds Grange Magnums, valued at over $60,000 is sure to be enjoyed.
The venue’s colour themes of muted blue and green, contrasting brass, leather, and marble fixtures are all part of the vision created by local boutique architecture firm Space Cubed Studio, which are also responsible for venues like Loose Moose, Rubi Red, Cali Beach and La Luna to name a few.
Local builders Open Project Group have been tasked with bringing this vision to life, and fitting out the venue ahead of its opening next month.
Coast Beach Bar & Kitchen will be located at Level 1 of the Meriton Suites – 86 The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217.
