Listen up sports fans, and food fans and beer fans and Burleigh Heads fans (yes okay, everyone) we’ve got an announcement to make.
Harry’s Steak Bistro have hit it out of the park (HA HA) with a boutique sports bar that opened officially this week bringing something pretty sweet to the lives of Gold Coasters.
Harry’s Sports Bar has opened up right alongside our beloved Harry’s Steak Bar & Bistro so you may both indulge in the tasty eats you know and love while also sinking bulk beers and cheer on the crazy folks who run up and down fields/courts for a living.
It’s sophisticated and beautifully fitout with some epic artworks created by the one and only Claudio Kirac adorning the shelves.
The space was very quickly (a four day turnaround) transformed into a 70-seat specialised sports bar that will host all the very best sporting events including said running up and down fields/courts competitions (NBA, NFL, AFL, Rugby League) plus less sweat-inducing events such as the World Surfing League.
Harry’s features a sports trophy case showcasing local customers personal sporting memorabilia, which is fun because any of y’all can apply to get your Under 10’s second place hockey medal in the trophy case.
Doing so will not only give you bragging rights around Burleigh but (a close second) an exclusive Harry’s membership with lots of discounts and first dibs on tables for the main sporting events.
Do most improved ribbons count? Asking for a friend.
Owners Adam Haralampou and Pete Tayler have decked out the new bar in a delightful fashion, paying homage to the greats of sport such as Sir Donald Bradman, Jordan, Greg Norman, Joe Montana, Wally Lewis and Cathy Freeman to name a few.
Happily, you can still soothe those steak frites cravings we know you have because Harry’s Sports Bar will be serving up a sweet sports-watching friendly menu featuring an epic array of snacks, a selection of steaks and, of course, some big old burgers.
Snacks-wise, get excited. There are Frickles which is a. our new favourite word and b. a combination of fried pickles and aioli and give us all of those please. There’s also our second favourite thing, Warm Spinach and 3 Cheese Dip (cheese, you are everything) plus Braised Short Rib Poutine, Harry’s famous Chicken Wings, Fried Calamari and Fried Chicken and SEE YA post-New Year diet we never really started.
If you’re after something a little bit meatier, the 230g Belted Galloway Rump and the 270g Scotch Silverfern Fillet are on offer, as are a Wagyu Cheeseburger and a Cajun Chicken burger.
So all the best things. There are food specials from Monday to Thursday nights and drinks specials on Friday and Saturday between 12pm and 5pm.
Wash those guys down with a frosty cold beer or a signature cocktail and you’ve got yourself one of the very best Aussie times you can have, except classier and in beautiful Burleigh Heads.
LOCATION: 1744 Gold Coast Hwy, Burleigh Heads
HOURS: From 5pm until late Monday to Thursday and 12pm until late on weekends.
