As our city swiftly changes around us, it’s sometimes a little startling. New shiny places to bust a move spring up continually, but sometimes, this can be at the cost of losing our classic favourites. Often, a place with memories for those who sipped drinks, danced the night away, and possibly even fallen in love.
For most of us, it’s probably safe to say a night at The Star’s old Atrium Bar held some of those fond and late-night memories!
We don’t think we’re over-exaggerating when we say that this venue has been a Gold Coast institution for more than three decades. A place for after-work drinks, catch-ups and nights filled with the revelry of the highest order.
We all shed a silent disco tear when we thought the good ol’ Atrium Bar was closing for good, but we were thrilled to learn, The Star had a brighter future ahead and now the Atrium Bar is back! Bigger and better than ever before (and in a fun new location), the revived design is underpinned by a sensational cocktail list and a matching next-level food menu. We are going to go ahead and say it; it’s the glow-up of the year. And we are confident you are all going to love the fabulous new venue with its respectable nod to yesteryear!
Put on your dancing shoes, folks, because their new and impressive dance floor with a retro disco ball and state-of-the-art sound ceiling — that keeps the music centralised above the action— will keep you up on your feet all night. The weekly entertainment is guaranteed to be nothing short of ultimate party vibes. There’s a mix of DJs and popular live bands on rotation every Thursday through to Sunday playing all your favourites, classic anthems, and guilty pleasures, you know the ones.
To keep you hydrated, the team have worked hard to create an eye-catching cocktail menu with drinks such as The Bowie, a sweet and sour concoction with apple liqueur and lemon, inspired by the one and only David Bowie. Other treats include Breakfast at Tiffany’s with vodka and hints of passionfruit and mango, as well as the Blossom Martini with gin, lychee, and cherry. A great selection of craft and premium beers, alongside a wine list featuring fine local and international drops cater to every taste.
The food menu focus is on platters and plates ideal for sharing between couples and bigger groups. Expect delectable antipasto boards with cured meats, grilled vegetables, olives, feta, and focaccia, besides decadent Australian cheese platters featuring brie, blue and cheddar, dried fruits, quince and crackers.
For those who still cherish memories of the old Atrium Bar, fear not. This reboot has been done with you in mind, the dancefloor is bigger, meaning more room to crack out those dance moves!
