White Rhino

Hold onto your horses (rhinos?) Gold Coasters, new venue alert incoming. This time we find ourselves in fair Surfers Paradise, home to an increasing number of dining spots that are rapidly transforming the suburbs’ reputation from tourist trap to locally-loved foodie destination.

The most recent addition is set to spring up at Circle on Cavill in mid-October. It’s a vibrant, up-market bar and restaurant sure to increase Surfers’ good time game even further.

White Rhino will bring an open-air garden feel featuring a bar packed with next-level goodies and a restaurant featuring everything from breakfast to bar snacks and tapas to fine dining. So every single good thing there is in the world of food.

The two level venue is currently being built with a $3million plus budget so you know it’s going to be exceptional. The newbie is the latest project of Gold Coast based company Artesian Hospitality, whose portfolio also includes Surfers Paradise nightclubs Sin City, Bedroom and Havana.

With a capacity to seat around 220 folks, it will be home to an elaborate waterfall bar feature along with lots of big old trees and plenty of lush greenery.

For those wanting a more private space (read: Tinder dates), a staircase will lead you to a decadent mezzanine floor complete with dining nooks and secluded seating. Fancy.

Oh and how’s this for secret squirrel business, an “award-winning internationally regarded restaurateur” is on board to create the epic menu that means we’ll all probably be spending a lot more time in Surfers Paradise.

White Rhino is set to offer a vibe unlike anything the Gold Coast has seen before and it may just transform the Surfers Paradise dining scene.

That’s all the news we have but, of course, we’ll bring you more when White Rhino opens next month. Because apparently, it’s October next month. Crazy.
