Longing for a what-could-have-been European summer? Fear not! We've got just the thing to fill the Ibiza shaped hole in your heart. Or, if you're more of a quiet beer kind of guy or gal, why not head to the Gold Coast's secret microbrewery? We've got all the deets you need to make this weekend one to remember.


It's finally tools down on the Komune renovations, which means the long-awaited reopening is just around the corner. The Mediterranean-inspired renovations give off serious European beach club vibes, which is perfect for those of us who had to give up on our European summer dreams this year. Check it out from the 2nd to the 4th of October, be quick though because spots will be snatched up quickly.


Ah, beers and dogs, man's two best friends. Everyone's favourite Black Hops Brewery is hosting the cutest fundraiser ever on the 3rd of October for our furry friends who are looking for a furever home. The amazing Animal Welfare League will be bringing along some very precious pooches for you to cuddle while you chug down some quenching beers. Beers and puppies, what an epic combo.


This brand new, deliciously naughty brunch will once again be taking The Island at Surfers Paradise by storm on the 3rd of October. Spice your weekend up with a drinks package that's as decadent as it is divine and a grazing menu to die for. Tickets are only $69 for two hours of fun, walk don't run!

The Gold Coast is the perfect location for weekend drinks, and with so many options to choose from, why would you go anywhere else?

I love all things fashion, food and travel. A holiday filled with drool-worthy food and Carrie Bradshaw-inspired fashion and I’m weak at the knees. Born in Brisbane and raised on the NSW far north coast, my passions and personal flair are influenced by a term I like to call “coastal-chic”. I’m a sucker for a rom-com (I don’t even want to think about how many times I’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada), but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
