Sofi, a luxury Mediterranean-style rooftop bar & restaurant coming to Surfers Paradise

Escape to the Mediterranean without leaving the Gold Coast with Sofi Restaurant and Rooftop; enjoy carefully crafted cocktails and tasty plates by Michelin chefs in a stylish, relaxed atmosphere.

Sofi Surfers Paradise, the subject of this story, is no longer in operation as the venue has since closed.

The Gold Coast is about to get a whole lot more luxurious with the opening of Sofi Restaurant and Rooftop. Designed to transport guests to the sun-drenched shores of the Amalfi Coast, Sofi offers a stylish and sophisticated rooftop experience that’s not to be missed.

Short for Sofia, Sofi Rooftop Bar is the brainchild of Michael Hope, the man behind Hunter Valley institution Hope Estate. With his latest venture, Hope aims to offer locals and tourists alike an elevated bar and dining experience on the Gold Coast.

Sofi Rooftop Bar promises to deliver a Mediterranean-inspired escape with its neutral colour palette, pops of terracotta and burnt orange, and lush greenery. Olive trees, whitewashed lounges and rustic urns add to the authentic Italian vibe.

“Sofi is designed to offer guests escapism – a slice of the Amalfi Coast in Surfers Paradise. With a delicious yet casual dining experience, artisan cocktails and a carefully crafted beverage list sourced from around the globe, she’ll quickly become the heart of the Gold Coast social scene,” said Mr Hope.

“Sofi will be a place to relax and unwind with friends and family. Whether it’s for a light bite, afternoon delight or party into the evening, Sofi gives guests the opportunity to soak in the sunshine and indulge in a luxury rooftop experience with impressive views,” he said.

But it’s not just the decor that’s impressive. Guests can expect a carefully crafted cocktail and wine list, alongside small plates that perfectly complement the drinks. From caviar to pasture-fed steak tartare, Tuscan bread salad to peach napoleon, the menu features tantalising tastes prepared by Michelin star chefs.

Exclusive cabanas offer guests a private space to soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere and savour their delicious food and drinks. But even those who don’t snag a cabana can enjoy sweeping views of the Gold Coast skyscape and waterways.

Whether you’re looking for a light bite, an afternoon delight or a night out with friends and family, Sofi Rooftop Bar has you covered. With its luxurious yet relaxed vibe, it’s sure to become the heart of the Gold Coast social scene.

Located at Level 2, 4 Orchid Ave Surfers Paradise, Sofi Rooftop Bar’s opening date is yet to be announced. But one thing’s for sure – it’s set to become the go-to destination for those seeking a taste of the Mediterranean on the Gold Coast. So stay tuned for more information, and get ready to escape to the Mediteranean right here on the coast.
