The Star Gold Coast will welcome a new rooftop restaurant and bar led by acclaimed Gold Coast restaurateur Simon Gloftis and entertainment expert Billy Cross ahead of this year’s Commonwealth Games. Set to open in March, the yet to be named venue will sit atop The Darling, the property’s new luxury suite hotel.

Co-managed by Gloftis and Cross in partnership with The Star Gold Coast, the 110-seated restaurant will dramatically open out onto an infinity pool which will offer awesome views of the surrounding skyline and no doubt be a destination for high-profile guests during the games. The team behind it are promising a superior dining and beverage experience, making full use of the sun-soaked surrounds.

Though the restaurant will also feature a private dining area, the bar is considerably larger with enough space to entertain 300-500 guests. Local DJs will be coming on board to set the tone while the bar operates with an extensive beverage and cocktail list which can also be enjoyed from private booths and a VIP bar.

“Having already unveiled eight new food and beverage venues as part of the redevelopment, including award-winning Kiyomi, Cucina Vivo and Garden Kitchen & Bar, the new restaurant and bar will further elevate our offering and cement our reputation as a leader on the dining scene”, offered The Star Entertainment Group Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg. “We cannot wait to reveal the name and further design and menu details of what will be a hero feature of The Star Gold Coast. We are committed to delivering a whole new dining experience for our property and for the city”.

More details on the new rooftop venue will be revealed later this year.
