Broadbeach scores a sweet new doughnut-slinging spot

Whoever invented doughnuts did the world a favour so big it can never be repaid.

Imagine someone just baking up a storm with their Nanna in the kitchen one morning, rolling leftover dough into shapes, dropping it into a pan and coating it in all of the sugar only to be rewarded with one of the tastiest flavour combinations ever known to man. Accidental genius (maybe).

A little while later (we did not research the timeline), icing was added, then SPRINKLES and recently, entire chocolate bars, flavour infusions, custard centres. It’s head spinning stuff.

Obviously we’re of the belief that the more doughnuts there are the better and so it brings us much happiness to report that Southport doughnut extraordinaires D Point 10 have opened up a second space in Broadbeach bringing their tasty creations to more lucky folks.

D Point 10 2.0 (that’s fun) can be found on the highway in the little precinct where Sushi Train also lives so you can grab some lunch and then some dessert and call it a very good day.

It’s a sweet little space with lots of natural light and pops of colour where you can sip Social Espresso brews while nibbling on many a variety of exceptional doughnut, which are baked fresh daily on site.

There are SO many amazing flavours to choose from starting with cinnamon and vanilla and moving on up to Nutella, jam and custard filled varieties.

Then there are flavours like Gaytime, Oreo, Ferrero and Red Velvet and they are the EXACT taste you would expect from such names and they are fluffy and perfect and we love them so much.

Oh Crème Brulee and Strawberries and Cream are winners too.

Honestly, they’re all so very good and we don’t know how they do it but the boys are slinging some of the best doughnuts on the Coast.

Do yourself a favour and get u to D Point 10 today, your tastebuds deserve a doughnut party do they not?

LOCATION: 2791 Gold Coast Hwy, Broadbeach
HOURS: Open daily from 7am until 3pm

The new Broadbeach wine and cocktail bar pouring local sips

Oh hey Broadbeach, it’s been awhile since we’ve had the pleasure. But what a pleasure it is today thanks to the launch of a brand new gin and wine bar smack bang in the middle of Surf Parade.

It’s called Brucie’s Gin & Wine Bar and it’s named after (very good boy) Brucie, a Frenchie who will absolutely steal your heart while you sip sweet, sweet cocktails in the winter sunshine.

The newbie can be found inside an existing Broady favorite, Addiction Food and Coffee House that now becomes Brucie’s from Thursday to Sunday nights and a space offering both coffee and cocktails is our new favourite thing.

It was a dream 10 years in the making for owner Hannah Hughes who has lived the hospo life for quite some time and decided to bring a little bit of her own personal magic to the Gold Coast.

And Brucie’s it is.

The white-washed space twinkles with fairy lights and drips with greenery and there is both indoor and outdoor seating options so you can enjoy an intimate little time or people watch out in the midst of the Broadbeach nighttime scene.

The drinks menu is an impressive one, as you can imagine, with Australian spirits and wines making up the majority of tipples on offer.

The cocktail list is lengthy so there are plenty of reasons to go back for more with absolutely zero judgement from anyone.

A few favourites of ours include I’d Guava have you with gin, Pampelle Ruby Aperol, lemon and guava and it’s a sweet, refreshing sip in the prettiest of purple hues.

The Risky Sour was also a taste sensation with whiskey, cherry brandy, lime and sweetened with a hint of vanilla – bitey and delicious, this was an absolute winner.

Mint to be another goodie with fry gin, lime, mint and a housemade cucumber syrup it’s a chilled out version of the classic dry gin martini and you might want to sip a few of those.

In terms of wine and beer, it’s an all Aussie adventure with all your favourites gracing the menu, including a few unique little Pet Nat wines that we think you’ll adore. Beer lovers can slurp on Black Hops, Burleigh Brewing Co. brews from around these parts and there’s a few out of towners on there too.

Dining-wise its five-star charcuterie boards for everyone with all the delicious produce piled high on those sourced locally too.

What we’re saying is, within the one space there is coffee for your morning needs, wine and cocktails for your evening needs and charcuterie boards for your all day every day needs.

Oh and Brucie himself.

Everything you could possibly want. Head down to Broadbeach to check it out for yourself.

LOCATION: Shop 5/24 Queensland Ave, Broadbeach
HOURS: From 4pm until late Thursday to Sunday

The Gold Coast’s sizzling new Spiegelclub now open

They say pink is the new black and that has never been more apparent than today on our sparkly (soon to be sparklier) Gold Coast shores.

A few short months ago, we announced the impending arrival of The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub, a venue set to sizzle with sophisticated, sexy stage shows and a unique club experience right in the heart of Broadbeach.

Well, we’ve got even more exciting news Gold Coasters, the venue opens this Thursday August 22nd and there are still tickets available for opening night.

The inaugural show is called SUAVÉ and it’s a tantalizing, mind-blowing show featuring an elite cast of handpicked performers from across the globe.

The exciting new addition to the Coast’s entertainment scene will combine a thrilling mix of daring cabaret and cirque artists from every corner of the world including Russia, Mexico, USA, UK and Australia and we are absolutely here for that.

SUAVÉ is set to deliver mind-blowing acrobatics, daring aerial feats, laugh out loud comedy, unbelievable cirque acts, singing, dancing and a splash of saucy scandal, just for good measure.

So all our favourite things.

The magic will be performed on a state-of-the-art stage amongst lavish, pink-hued surrounds allowing for up close and personal viewing experiences for guests.

A 20-metre custom designed LED screen sets the backdrop for the show with artistic projection displays to delight your eyeballs. Add pulsating live beats from international musicians and DJ’s and you’ve got yourself an unmissable time.

The fun doesn’t end there though. After the show The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub transforms into a high-end venue combining passion, music, performance and dancetomake the night one to remember.

All guests who purchase tickets to SUAVÉ are given a complimentary wristband valued at $25 per person for entry into The Club from 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub features decadent 1920’s Art Deco styling at every turn, the eye-popping pink velvet furnishings, geometric light fittings and splashes of metallic gold – so basically the champagne lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of, brought to life.

The venue also boasts three fully stocked bars and the exclusive ‘The Birdcage’ on Level Two. It’s very Leo Dicaprio / Great Gatsby-esque and we really hope he comes along.

Tickets range from $78 to $148 and include a complimentary grazing platter designed to share.

It’s pretty much the most exciting thing to happen to the Gold Coast since well, ever.

It’s going to be a very glittery week Gold Coasters. Get your tickets here.
