2024 is just around the corner. Yep, we're almost done with another crazy year. If you’re anything like us, November signals the time to fire up the groupchat and finalise that New Year's Eve plan of attack. Luckily, The Star Gold Coast have a smorgasbord of exclusive events and dinners to book for even your pickiest mates. There's dinners complete with all-you-can-eat oysters, champagne parties, Cantonese feasts, drag queens, and more.
Where To Party
Isoletto Prive And The Lawn
Wednesdays are reserved for pink, and New Year's Eve at Isoletto Prive and The Lawn is all about donning your best white ensemble. Grab tickets for a White Party unlike any other packed with live entertainment, four hours of flowing Moet & Chandon Impérial and Grey Goose Vodka cocktails and food stations of all-you-can-eat oysters, charcuteries boards, made-to-order pasta and canapes.
Grand Pool Lawn
This New Year's the Grand Pool Lawn are hanging the disco balls and rolling out the red carpet for a grooving night of dancing, disco and food. Enjoy sets from local DJs, rhythm and soul songstress Lisa Hunt and drag queens while filling up on four-hour drinks package and food stations of made-to-order paella and pizza. Plus, tuck into substantial canapes of sushi, burrito bowls, bao and more.
If you’ve sorted the group but are stuck for a spot to ring in 2024, reserve a booth at Atrium Bar. Whether you want to set fire to the dancefloor or chill out among the excitment, book a booth for you and up to twelve of your closest mates and live it up for the final few hours of 2023.
If a plush spot to perch wasn’t already bougie enough, bookings include a $250 bar tab and bottle of Domaine Chandon to share.
Where To Dine
Garden Kitchen And Bar
Book a spot at Garden Kitchen and Bar for a laid back New Year's. Order from the a la carte menu of classic Aussie summer land and sea offerings—we’re talking seafood platters of fresh oyster and prawns, rosemary marinated lamb cutlets, macadamia crusted salmon and 350g rib eye. If you’re looking to leave the kids at home, get the party started with picnic packages on The Lawn. Feast on everything from wagyu meatballs to fresh seafood while taking in front and centre views of the countdown and fireworks. Did we mention DJ Tigerlily will be spinning the discs?
Nineteen At The Star
For breathtaking views and unforgettable feasting, book New Year's Eve at Nineteen. Tuck into a four-course set menu across the restaurant's two seatings—with standout dishes including mushroom risotto, fillet steak, Oscietra caviar and panna cotta. Make sure to lock those plans in quick and book your seating—you won’t be disappointed.
Keep the Euro summer vibes flowing into 2024 with New Year's Eve on the terrace at Cucina Vivo. Opt for the Sunset Seating and sip a glass of bubbly on arrival before tucking into a Med-inspired three-course meal. Or for the late feasters, the Moonlight Seating offers New Year fireworks with a five-course meal and three-hour drinks package.
Treat your taste buds to one final fine-dining experience in 2023 with a New Year's reservation at Kiyomi. Book in their early seating or their second seating and explore an a la carte menu of fresh dishes that are almost too beautiful to eat.
Here at Urban List, we’re big fans of an all-out buffet experience. Sample your way into the New Year and book a spot at Harvest Buffet. Sip bubbly on arrival before setting your plan of attack for Harvest’s lineup of hot and cold seafood stations, fresh oysters, salads, cheese boards, roasts and desserts (if you still have room).
Although we love any chance for a boogie, the best New Year's Eve is about good food and good mates. Book a table at Uncle Su for a night of Cantonese, Beijing and Szechuan-inspired feasting. They're putting on an la carte menu of button-undoing-worthy eats like lobster with ginger, spring onion and braised in Thai chilli sauce, oysters with yuzu dressing and Macao-style roasted pork belly.
