Food & beverage enhancements for The Star

Transformation of The Star Gold Coast continues to take shape, with another five food and beverage experiences to open before the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

A new sports bar, a cafeteria-style eatery and a revitalised Chinese restaurant are featured in the next phase of the property’s redevelopment, which also sees the existing building connect to the new luxury six-star tower nearing completion at the front of the island.

The Star Entertainment Group managing director Queensland, Geoff Hogg, said the property was approaching an exciting phase in its evolution.

“Investing in our culinary offering and creating exciting new food and beverage experiences is a key focus of our transformation,” Geoff said.

“Through our investment here on the Gold Coast we have opened up the existing property to celebrate our fantastic coastal lifestyle and created a breadth of experiences that are reflective of our city’s vibrant personality.

“The next phase of our transformation will continue this approach by utilising the connection between the two buildings to provide guests with direct access to an outdoor terrace that takes full advantage of our fantastic sub-tropical climate.

“Guests can also expect to see more of an alignment with The Star brand, with the new outlets adopting some of the same branding and design cues as their sister-venues at The Star Sydney.”

Designed in partnership with multi-award winning architectural firm Brand and Slater, the multifaceted project will allow guests to flow through a number of zones, each with a distinctive approach to design.

Brand and Slater’s director interior design, Luis Nheu, said the visual flow between the existing facilities and new design would provide a solid connection between the two areas.

“The Gold Coast has an abundance of interesting natural features so we were able to draw on the intricacies of these elements to create a sense of place,” said Luis.

“Bespoke furniture pieces and intricate finishes add a touch of luxury, while the use of coastal tones connects The Star to its coastal location and reflects the direction of the property’s overall transformation.”

The latest announcement forms part of The Star Gold Coast’s current transformation taking in the refurbishment of the existing property and construction of a six-star tower ahead of the Commonwealth Games.
