Sip & Celebrate Summer In Style!

GC Word on the Street #157

Three cheers, Summer is finally here! We've still got a few more weeks before work is out and the parties start, but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun now. We're sipping at new rooftop bars, singing our hearts out at Christmas Carols and slurping all of the Ramen we can get our hands on... And we can't wait to see what the rest of December has in store.

The Miami Gets A Revamp

Perched directly opposite the beach in North Burleigh, The Miami is a pretty iconic landmark for most Gold Coast locals - And it's finally re-opening again after a revamp! Closing for refurbishments in June this year, The Miami is returning with a coastal look perfectly suited to Burleigh life, featuring a stunning coastal fit-out and floor-to-ceiling windows perfect for watching the sun set. Opening up two incredible dining spaces on the second floor, grab a seat indoors at their restaurant or perch yourself on their airy deck and indulge in all of the incredible food (and drink) that The Miami has to offer, with plenty of seriously drool-worthy dishes to tempt your fancy on a Friday night out. Also featuring a fresh Sports Bar downstairs, if you're keen to grab a beer and celebrate the weekend, The Miami has you covered with twenty-two fresh brews on tap. Cheers to the weekend!

I Like Ramen Returns

If you count yourself as a ramen fan, we highly recommend you check this place out... Seriously! Re-instating themselves in Nobby Beach, I Like Ramen officially threw open their doors a little over a week ago, welcoming the public into their fresh new ramen and whisky bar just in time for the holidays. Famous for serving up 100% plant-based Ramen, you can expect all of your usual favourites on their menu, as well as plenty of ice-cold Asahi and Japanese Whiskey to perfectly compliment all of those late-night Ramen runs. Open until late from Wednesday until Sunday, there's nowhere else we'd rather go for a late night feast.

New Rooftop Bar

Let us have a moment of silence for our much-loved Gold Coast Hellenika.

Ok, now that's over, we have some exciting news - The Hellenika building is being taken over by the incredible new Loki! The brainchild of the people behind Justin Lane in Burleigh, Loki is the newest venture to open up in Nobby Beach, promising a drool-worthy food list and seriously good drinks list that you'll fall in love with as soon as you walk through the doors. All about drinking, dancing and having a good time, you'll be able to indulge in all of the Mediterranean food you can get your hands on in their restaurant, or perch yourself at their rooftop bar for an afternoon of nibbles, drinks and plenty of live music from local DJ's. Officially opening just last weekend, we predict that Loki is going to quickly become one of the Coast's favourite new spaces - So make sure you grab some gal pals, a pair of heels and get down there ASAP!

Sanctuary Cove Christmas Carols | December 5th @ 5pm

It's that time of year again - It's time for Sanctuary Cove's annual Carols on the Green! Running their Carols annually on their green space in the Marine Village, Sanctuary Cove's Christmas Carols are kicking off from 5pm in just a few days time, with plenty of family-friendly entertainment featured to keep everyone entertained all night long. Singing all of your favourite Carols on the night, warm up your singing voices so you can belt out all of your favourite tunes, then finish the night off with a visit from Santa!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
