GC WORD ON THE STREET #170

If there’s anything that will get us hyped about coming out of quarantine-hiding and venturing into this new normal, it’s the announcement of new venues that include beers, food, wine and just a hell of a good time! This week, we’re showcasing the latest openings and offerings that are reigniting GC’s hospitality and tourism scene!

THE LUCKY SQUIRE | BROADBEACH

The newest brewhouse to grace the Coast is this two-storey brewery located right amongst the dining hotspot of Oracle Boulevard and boy oh boy, has it been a long time coming! The Lucky Squire is a collaboration with Mantle Group Hospitality and Lion, who are also the team behind Brisbane’s The Charming Squire, The Sound Garden and Pig ‘n’ Whistle, which means there’s no doubt this grand venue will soon be a GC favourite. Get ready to throw back a good cold craft beer as it is the only brewhouse on the Coast that holds the complete James Squire range on tap! Don’t worry non-beer drinkers… You’ll be catered for as there is a selection of delectable wines and coastal-inspired cocktails as well as delicious food to devour! With crafted drinks, elevated pub dishes and live music every day, this is a perf venue for any celebration… you’ll want to book in now!

BARRIO | BYRON BAY

Did someone say Friday knock offs at Barrio? Byron’s beloved neighbourhood bar and eatery is back and you don’t want to miss this! Barrio is serving new and exciting Aperitif offerings every Friday from 5-7pm. Cosy up with some pre-dinner drinks to stimulate your palate before delighting your tastebuds with a selection of yummy dishes to try. With $10 plates including cured meats plus 3 brand new main courses such as braised mussels and oomite brisket, you can’t go wrong! Seating is now available inside the tranquil dining room and we can’t think of a better place or way to welcome in the upcoming weekend!

WILDFLOWER GIN | VARSITY LAKES

Shout out to all the gin-drinking lovers, this one’s for you! Wildflower Gin is Gold Coast’s latest gin distillery that specialises in their very own brand of gin and is the new local spot that deserves all our support! The team behind Wildflower Gin are dedicated distillers including James Greig, who have spent the past few years perfecting their gin creations and have now crafted a signature gin - ‘Burleigh in a bottle’, packed full of locally grown botanicals and a little drop of honey straight from James’ backyard in Burleigh. This awesome distillery allows you to pop in and pick up a bottle or they offer masterclasses to make your very own unique gin! Yes… you’ll get to learn the distillation process and choose from an array of botanicals to craft your own personalised blend! Jump on the website to book into a class now and let the creations be-gin!

SANCTUARY | BY SIRROMET

We all love a good deal when it comes to anything wine, food and self-care related, right? Well, what if we told you there’s a deal that combines the three and is surely one that will be hard to miss?!... Sanctuary by Sirromet invites you to truly escape, relax and indulge with a 1 night stay in an elegant and stylish premium pavilion that includes a $100 food and beverage voucher, 2x breakfast hampers, a bottle of Vintage Signature Sparkling plus 2x Supa Golf passes! This glamping experience could be all yours for a special price for this month only. This is the ultimate escape you’ve been wanting and (after the year we’ve had), one that you very much deserve! Now’s your chance to get away from everyday life and escape to somewhere still close to home, yet you will feel miles away in the cosy pavilions amongst the beautiful nature setting! Head here to book your peaceful little escape now!
