No doubt you’ve noticed the major building site currently taking up residence on the beachfront in Burleigh. Well, in case you were hiding under a rock and haven’t heard the news, here’s what’s up.
Burleigh Pavilion is set to open its extravagant doors in December of this year and we are PUMPED. The epic venue has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation and it’s going to bring the good people of the Gold Coast a beachside space the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
The gist is this; Sydneysiders Ben May and Robert Magid are the duo behind the build, not to mention famed Sydney venues Manly Wharf Hotel and Mrs Sippy (love) plus Seminyak Beach Club in Bali. So you know it’s gonna be the absolute goods.
Once home to Oskars up top and still home to Rick Shores down below, the new addition to the ocean front building will boast both a full-service 235-seat restaurant called The Tropic, and a larger more casual fixture named The Terrace.
The Tropic is said to be a more casual style of sit down dining with all your fave fresh seafood, pizza and burger options while The Terrace will offer more of a bar snack dining situation.
The space will be a whitewashed style of fitout with a breeze block bar and a rooftop-style area filled with beach umbrellas and absolutely perfect for sipping cocktails in the sunshine all summer long.
There are showers and surfboard racks just outside so you can actually walk right off the beach and into the bar. Which is just too good.
With 180 degree views of the ocean and a constant salty breeze blowing in, you’ll have the pleasure of watching the surf roll in (and the surfers) while counting your lucky stars you’re a Gold Coaster.
What a time to be alive.
Cannot wait for this one guys, our summer chill spot is absolutely sorted.
