Restaurant and entertainment duo enlisted for new rooftop venue at the Star Gold Coast
The new venue will be located on the top level of The Darling luxury suite hotel – the centrepiece of The Star Gold Coast’s current investment set to be delivered before the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Acclaimed Gold Coast restaurateur Simon Gloftis and entertainment guru Billy Cross will co-manage the venue with The Star Gold Coast, bringing with them a wealth of home-grown and international dining and entertainment expertise.
The restaurant will feature a 110-seat dining area opening out onto an infinity pool overlooking the Gold Coast skyline, as well as a private dining area catering to more intimate functions.
The bar will cater up to 500 guests, and will feature an extensive beverage and cocktail list range as well as private booths and a VIP Bar.
“Having already unveiled eight new food and beverage venues as part of the redevelopment, including award-winning Kiyomi, Cucina Vivo and Garden Kitchen & Bar, the new restaurant and bar will further elevate our offering and cement our reputation as a leader on the dining scene,” said The Star Entertainment Group managing director Queensland Geoff Hogg.
Cross is the CEO of Queensland’s largest outdoor event and festival company, Cross Promotions International.
“The Gold Coast is currently entering a new era and with the announcement that we are launching one of the most exciting new entertainment venues in Australia, the buzz surrounding our city continues to escalate,” he said.
“Partnering with The Star Gold Coast for such a cutting edge and unique venue is a project I am incredibly proud to be part of and I cannot wait to show the world what our coastal city has to offer.”
