Round up the girls, two new bottomless brunches have dropped

Early catch-ups with friends over delightful breakfasts and coffee — perhaps after a workout of some description — is pretty standard practice for your average Gold Coaster. As is also getting together over lunch bathed in sunshine — with a high chance of having salty hair and sand between your toes. But what about the in-between? The act of combining breakfast with lunch is known the world over as brunch, and if you’re a serial bruncher of sorts, you’ll understand how darn good it is! But do one better with bottomless brunches and you’re onto a winner.

The best of both worlds. No early wake-ups and things all wrap up with enough time for you to get on with the rest of your day — provided you don’t take cocktail-sipping well into the afternoon.

With this in mind, we have been given hot news of two venues that are breaking out spanking new bottomless brunches in the locales of Surfers Paradise and Nobby Beach. The age of the brunch is coming, and we know you’re going to love it.

Surfers Pavilion
30/34 Ferny Avenue, Surfers Paradise

If you weren’t aware of Surfers Paradise scoring itself a swoon-worthy Pavilion earlier this year, then can we ask what rock you’ve been living under? Opening in late April, and the multi-million-dollar waterfront venue has been a massive success since opening its doors. With a dedicated frosé bar and a prime position on the water, their Sunset Sundays have also already gained a cult following playing host to The Stafford Brothers, Stace Cadet, Barney Cools, and Peking Duk.

However, things are about to get even more fabulous with the launch of their Surfers Pavilion Brunch Club. Launching on Sunday 8th of August, your average Sunday session can now kick off with a bang from 10.30am onwards. The two-hour Brunch Club package is just $89 per person and includes the following… Prepare yourself.

For food, think: Antipasto & cheeses, vegetable frittata, salmon & avocado bruschetta, a selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt & chia pudding, plus waffles drizzled with Nutella and maple syrup — can we all collectively say YUM! Now, for the best bit. The drink lineup. You will be very (very) pleased to know that Brunch tipples will include: Espresso Martini’s, Traditional and Watermelon Margarita’s, along with flavoured Spritz. And for those more sophisticated drinkers, expect to enjoy a sneaky glass (or two) of Sauvignon Blanc, and Byron Bay Lager. Oh, and of course, no brunch would be complete without Mimosas! Duh!

Doors will open at 10am, with your 2-hour package beginning at 10.30am. DJ’s will be playing from midday. As you would expect, demand is expected to be high, with pre-booked tickets limited. So what are you waiting for? Get onto it and book those tickets peeps!

Gods of the Sea
Shop B/2215 Gold Coast Highway, Nobby Beach

As if Nobby Beach needed another excuse to be a premium going out spot? The newly opened and already well-loved Gods of the Sea is taking their first-rate lavish seafood offering and giving it a brunch twist.

On Fridays and Saturdays from noon, you’re invited to indulge yourself and your friends on a bottomless brunch of utter decadence. Featuring a four-course menu and 2 hours free-flowing wines, including prosecco, rose, white and red wines by Dalzotto… sign us up, and clear your calendar!

The menu reads like a love letter to the ocean, and for those who live for their seafood, you will absolutely fall for their dishes. Can we tempt you with Oysters mignonette with lemon, Pickled Ocean Trout, Pan Seared Scallops or perhaps Grilled Swordfish? And if that isn’t enough, round off your delectable feast with a Carrot Cake with carrot fudge, dulce de leche, and pecan. *drools.*

All of this can be yours for a very reasonable $79 per person, and being as good as this looks, we think brunching might just become your new favourite pastime (if it isn’t already!).

So go ahead and make plans to have that well overdue loooong Friday lunch, Saturday catch up or Sunday session at one of these bottomless brunches. We give you permission!

DROP EVERYTHING: Surfers Pav is now open

Fan of a good old-fashioned surprise? We certainly are, so the news that highly anticipated Surfers Pavilion was due to open ahead of the Anzac Day long weekend, indeed sent us into a spin. Be prepared to get acquainted with the all-new Surfers Pavilion!

If you aren’t already aware, the chic new Surfers Paradise venue — on Ferny Avenue — has uninterrupted waterfront views and even boasts a substantial mooring site of 400sq metres, which although not quite complete, will be ready in the coming weeks. Meaning if you want to arrive by boat or jet ski, Bond-style — so be it!

If you aren’t captured by this open and airy space accompanied by dappled light from overhead shutters, then perhaps the classic-looking red brick feature walls and all of the plants might be your thing? Either way, this venue is going to give you ample opportunity to nail those perfect Instagram shots, drink in hand, of course.

The sprawling menu of fresh and locally sourced seafood is testament to the traditional take on ‘pavilion’ dining. The harbinger though, has to be the most impressive oyster and Champagne station you’re likely to have ever laid eyes on — where guests can intermingle with chefs and get the lowdown on all things edible. Keen to know what part of the South Coast your oysters came from? Ask away!

If this isn’t already enough, a wholly dedicated frosé bar is aptly positioned on the extensive outside deck area. Perfect for those who like to keep themselves amply hydrated whilst enjoying our beautiful Queensland sunshine and aquatic views. Everyone, right?

Once fully open, you’ll have the chance to arrive in style, enjoy a beautiful space with fresh food prepared by on-hand chefs, all whilst sipping Champagne, cocktails or perhaps frosé. And right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, no less. It almost sounds too good to be true!

To revel in the early opening of such a fabulous venue, Surfers Pavilion kicked off their very first Sunset Sunday (25 April 2021) featuring internationally acclaimed (but locally grown) DJs and producers, The Stafford Brothers. Yes, you read that correctly. What a way to start.

But don’t fret if you weren’t there for the opening weekend, from here on in you will be able to enjoy your weekend sessions with various DJs on the decks while the warm Autumn sunset bounces on the water beside you. This Sunday (2 May 2021) Stace Cadet will take to the decks to bring his house and electronic beats.

Head honcho Matthew Keegan, the Managing Partner at Artesian Hospitality, who operate the new venue, looks forward to welcoming you all down to Surfers Pavilion, “We cannot wait for our locals to come down and see the brand-new Surfers Pavilion… Get ready for one hell of a party”.

Where: 30/34 Ferny Ave, Surfers Paradise
When: Every Thursday – Monday 11am-late

Gods of the Sea will have you hooked

Are you someone who seeks out refined and sustainably sourced seafood in elegant settings accompanied by exceptional drinks and flawless service? Forever on an odyssey to taste the very best the ocean has to offer? Yes, we know who you are — and have we got some news for you.

Say hello to brand spanking new Nobby Beach restaurant Gods of the Sea. Now it’s fair to say Nobby Beach has been changing at a reasonable rate over the last couple of years, with comings and goings of various hospitality venues. But by first impressions, Gods of the Sea it seems, is set to become a Gold Coast favourite.

Gods of the Sea is brought to you by hospo veterans Stevie Filipovic, co-owner of Light Years (Noosa, Burleigh, and Byron Bay) and Jeff Bennett, partner of Three Blue Ducks. The duo also happens to be operators of Nobby Beach’s rooftop sensation, Split. With eons of expertise between them, you can rest assured these hospo cats will be pulling all of the right strings.

The menu is an ode to delicious seafood, with ex-head chef of highly renowned — and much missed — The Fish House (sob sob) Jon Nurminen at the helm — ensuring nothing but the very best in sustainably sourced premium seafood is finding its way onto your plate. From the finest in-season Oysters from around the country bathed in their house mignonette to Sunshine Coast King Prawns layered with fermented chilli sauce and locally caught Yellowfin Tuna with ginger dashi and finger lime; every dish from the deep blue has been heavily considered and sensationally put together.

Seafood aside, there are also some meat dishes and vegan/vegetarian options — How does a Tajima Wagyu Striploin with anchovy butter or Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli with sage sound to you? Delicious, we’re confident you’ll agree!

For those with a sweet tooth, there’s a hearty selection of desserts to finish things off. The most eye-catching and tastebud tingling would have to be their A Sea Of Tiramisu, in our humble opinion. Adapting a classic tiramisu with added lashings of Dead Man’s Spiced Rum and Licor 43 as well as an obligatory slosh of Kahlua — you will not want to share this.

The drinks list is a quality admixture of tasty European wines, award-winning Australian beers and an attractive repertoire of signature cocktails with some twists on a few classics in there for good measure. Furthermore, you’ll find a dedicated section to champagnes, because after all, who can eat oysters without champagne?!

The venue promises to offer a refined dining experience like no other in the ever-trendy Nobby Beach locale. By throwing in some of the most sumptuous seafood you’re likely to find anywhere, an abundant drinks selection and smiley waitstaff to make it all happen. We can’t help but see you and your significant other planting yourself here for your next date night.

Where: 2215 Gold Coast Hwy, Nobby Beach
Hours: 5.30pm – 12am Wed-Fri & noon – 12am Sat-Sun

Ahh brunch, not quite breakfast, not quite lunch and allowing us the opportunity to squeeze in a guilt-free meal between the two. BEST.

Do you know what’s even better than brunch, though? A boozy brunch. Because drinking in the morning is never a bad idea, particularly when accompanied by five-star foods from some of your fave local venues. And here they are, indulge away!

The Tropic
Everyone’s favourite ocean-view venue, Burleigh Pav offers bottomless brunch on the last Saturday of every month. Taking place specifically in The Tropic side of the space, you’ll not only get to gaze lovingly at the ocean but also indulge in some of the freshest seafood and innovative plates by imaginative Head Chef Guillaume Zika. Pair everything with bottomless NV Chandon and NV Chandon Rose for $129pp, or up the ante, and for an additional $30 you can be sipping Veuve Clicquot. Amazing. We’ll see you there every month then?

Elk Espresso
Luckily, we have a lot of love to give because there are so many Gold Coast venues worthy of it. It goes without saying Elk Espresso is one of those that have been in our hearts from the start. And they just cemented our (and your) love for them with a bottomless offering available every day from 10am (with no booking required), where you’ll have your favourite dish paired with one hour of bottomless mimosas (classic, strawberry or lime) for just $45pp. Not to mention, the menu at Elk is always absolutely incredible, so plan ahead: wear your stretchy pants.
Where: Shop GO44, Oasis Shopping CentreBroadbeach

Miss Moneypenny’s
Ok, so it’s ‘tehcnically’ a Bottomless Lunch at Broadbeach’s Miss Moneypenny’s — but once you try it, you’ll see why we had to include them in this list! Roll up every Saturday or Sunday from 12pm to 3pm with live entertainment from 1pm (Sunday) and indulge in a three-course set menu and two-hour beverage package from $90 inclusive of selected cocktails, spritzers, bubbles, wine and beer. If you feel like getting fancy go for the Chef’s Signature Selection with seven courses and a two-hour beverage package including the above sips from $125pp. You may also upgrade both packages to include French Champagne – we are here for it.

Nineteen at The Star
This sophisticated dining experience features an exquisite menu complete with Executive Chef Uday Huja’s brunch favourites, as well as highlights from the grill. Plus, you can pair your brunch with a premium two-hour champagne package while you take in the stunning views – now that’s a brunch worth getting out of bed for. It’s on every Sunday with two sittings – 11am until 1pm and 1.15pm and 3.15pm. With sweeping views overlooking the ocean and the city, it has to be one of the most stunning brunch options around.
Where: The Darling, Gold Coast Highway, Broadbeach

The Island Gold Coast
It’s a grazing-style lunch situation at Surfers Paradise’s beloved The Island Rooftop. Snack on a $69pp all-inclusive package with dishes like salt and pepper squid and garlic and char-grilled rosemary lamb cutlets – all delicious, obviously. To drink, there are selected tap beers, house red, white and sparkling wine, the Rooftop Spritz range, select cocktails, soft drinks, and juices all included in your package. Head in every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 2pm to get involved in this one.

Your favourite contemporary Cantonese spot is now boasting weekend bottomless brunches, so prepare to get boozy. Available from 12pm – 4pm Saturday and Sunday (min of 2 ppl), you’ll each receive a delectable lunch bowl with choices like Kung Pao Chicken and Vegetable Spring Rolls and, more importantly, a 2-hour limitless drinks package featuring spiritizes and tap beers! It’ll set you and your guest back a very affordable $55 each.

Gods of the Sea
For ardent seafood lovers, Gods of the Sea is a solid IYKYK situation, meaning if you crave foods from the deep and haven’t checked out this place yet, where have you been? Every Saturday, book in for a 2-hour bottomless brunch anywhere between noon and 3pm for a magnificent ocean-orientated five-course degustation with the likes of pan-seared scallops and grilled swordfish. And don’t forget the boundless pouring of bubbles at your disposal. Just $89 per person! But make sure you get in before Saturday 20 November as this will be the last of their Bottomless Brunch series!

Ally Chow
Ally Chow in Nobby Beach brings you all the Asian fusion you can fill your belly with. Our new favourite thing is the Margarita Lunch Banquet though, including all the tastiest eats plus unlimited Asahi beer, Prosecco and MARGARITAS! So yes, that’s a thing. Best of all, it’s just $99 per person — that’s pretty much your Friday through Sunday lunches sorted for the rest of the year, no? And if you’re more of a vodka gal (we all have that one time tequila got us good), the Chow Out banquet for $79 features bottomless Thai Basil Caipiroskas! Delish.
Where: Lavarack Road, Nobby Beach
