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!

Where: The Star Gold Coast, Casino Drive, Broadbeach.
Hours: Every day 4pm — late.

The Star Gold Coast

Nineteen at The Star Bar

The beloved Atrium Bar is getting a makeover

For more than three decades, the Atrium Bar at The Star Gold Coast has been the city’s go-to venue for fun nights on the dancefloor, the keeper of many stories and the creator of many lasting memories over its fun-filled history. Most notable is its undeniable flair for playing cupid, with the bar sparking the beginning of countless love stories, relationships and marriages. 

The current Atrium Bar, which has been a cherished part of The Star Gold Coast property since initially opening as a piano bar in 1986, will close shortly in mid-July — with the lively new Atrium Bar to open within the casino flooring area at the end of August!  

It is the ambiance and the Atrium Bar’s affinity for bringing merrymakers together that The Star Gold Coast anticipates will carry through. After 35 incredible, memorable years, The Star Gold Coast again turns the page on an exciting new chapter that will honour the fun, playful energy synonymous with the bar.

Best get those dancing shoes ready as the live music venue promises to have partygoers feeling lively whatever the occasion, with live DJs Thursday through Sunday playing everyone’s favourite classic anthems, much loved top 100, and epic mashups.

The revamped and reworked bar will capture your attention with a bright, bold, colourful, and new design. The comfy lounge booths will be perfect for having chilled moments, accompanied by a classic and exciting cocktail menu, and of course, a dancefloor complete with disco mirror ball to cut shapes long into the night. Trust us; this facelift will deliver fresh, party vibes. All while injecting a little extra colour and spice: perfect for shirking those winter blues!

But will this new space hold a candle to our beloved Atrium Bar? We have no doubt it will and neither does The Star Gold Coast Chief Operating Officer, Jess Mellor. “There’s little doubt the Atrium Bar has been much-loved – people are always sharing their stories about meeting their husband or wife there, or times their dinner ‘kicked on’ and they woke up with sore feet, but a big smile on their face. I promise all those loyal revellers the new Atrium Bar will deliver the same warm welcome and lively, carefree party vibes they remember.”

Just like the original bar, the newly relocated Atrium Bar will be the textbook go-to for post-work drinks, birthday merriments, fun nights out with the girls (or the guys), and with special parties planned year-round, it will still be the same place to meet new people and dance the night away. Who needs Bumble these days, anyway?

The brand spanking new Atrium Bar is set to open in its fresh setting at the end of August 2021. Serving drinks and good times from 4pm till late seven nights a week, with live entertainment weekly from Thursday – Sunday.
