Here we are again friends, the start of a new month, the arrival of summer and yes, a round of excellent new venues to peruse in the lead up to the silly season.

Without further ado, here are all the newbies we visited in November on the Gold Coast and they’re all very worthy of your time and hard-earned pennies.


A new boho-inspired beach bar opened down Coolangatta way and it’s everything we need for a summer of fun on the Gold Coast. Bo’teku can be found on Marine Parade with ocean views, an absolutely packed-with-goodness cocktail menu and share plates with plenty of seafood to satiate your cravings. There’s live music on weekends and it’s the perfect spot for an arvo of seaside sipping.
Where: Shop 6, 110 Marine Parade, Coolangatta

Runway Restaurant
The Coast’s first airport hotel (Rydges Gold Coast Airport) opened in November and with it came a poolside restaurant by the name of Runway. At lunch and dinnertime, you’ll have choices like slow-roasted pizzas, a variety of fresh salads, Saltwater Barramundi, Wok Tossed Mussels, a Flame Grilled Beef Burger and a range of high-quality steaks. All of which can be washed down with a very extensive drinks menu. Everyone can dine there and the sparkly pool views alone are worth a visit.
Where: Rydges Gold Coast Airport, Bilinga

Las Palmas
The Palmy newbie was one of the most talked about openings of the year and it did not disappoint. Overlooking the ocean and with a sweeping wrap around balcony, sweet pastel hues and a stunning bar, Las Palmas is serving up Latin American eats and a range of creative cocktails you’re going to absolutely love. If you’re a fan of beautiful interiors, salty ocean breezes and tasty, perfectly presented eats, look no further than the new kid on the Palm Beach block.
Where: Level 1, 1097 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach

My Sushi Burrito
The Coast’s first sushi burrito was launched in Nobby’s last month and it’s a thing you absolutely have to try. Found within Hachi on the Gold Coast Highway, My Sushi Burrito offers many flavours to choose from and we recommend every single one. For example, a Mexican Beef with spiced beef rib, cherry tomato, mixed beans, coriander, corn, green oak, cheddar cheese and marie rose sauce or a Samurai Chicken with panko crumbed chicken breast, red cabbage, carrot, green oak, avocado, cream cheese, fried garlic and JP katsu sauce. Yep.
Where: 2249 Gold Coast Highway, Nobbys Beach

Palm Springs Cafe
One of the Coast’s most beautiful venues opened last month and if you haven’t already had the pleasure of visiting, we suggest you get down there quick smart. It’s called Palm Springs Cafe and it can be found on the corner of the Gold Coast Highway and Gardenia Grove boasting breakfast cocktails of the Margarita, Bloody Mary and Espresso Martini varieties and a nourishing, goodie-filled menu that’ll have you returning time and time again. Same.
Where: Cnr Gardenia Grove and Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads

Secret speakeasy’s are the order of the day and luckily, Broadbeach is serving up one of the best. Veladora opened recently and you can find it by the red palm tree where the Monorail once lived. Slip inside and discover the Gold Coast’s newest signature margaritas, ice-cold Tecate and a slew of exciting new mezcal sips to rival any you’ve experienced before. There are also interesting eats like black guacamole with green ants and mealworm-seasoned salsa, squid ink-infused popcorn, spicy peanut and cricket trail mix and decadent duck parfait with cherry jelly and brioche. Magical. Find it for a good time.
Where: Broadbeach
