The Burleigh Pavilion
The Coast’s first ever beach club was always going to be an absolute game changer for locals and visitors alike but one step inside, we can confirm it lives up to the hype. Boasting sweeping views of Burleigh beach down to the Surfers Paradise coastline and with enough room for 600 people, beachside cocktails just got a whole lot better.
Design wise, it’s an Instagram dream. Think terrazzo tables, fairy lights, exposed timber rafters, four metre ceiling heights, splashes of pastel pink and lots of crisp white.
The Pavilion is made up of two areas. At the northern end sits restaurant, The Tropic (which seats 240 people) and at the other end is The Terrace a more casual affair where sandy feet are welcome.
Both sides will have food offerings from head chef Guillaume Zika, who nabbed two hats while running restaurant Cottage Point Inn in NSW. There's also a 90-strong wine list, local beers like Balter on tap and excellent cocktails.
Burleigh Pavilion is absolute proof that good things come to those who wait.
