A Gotham-themed grill and rooftop bar is opening on the GC this month!

Get excited northern Gold Coasters, an epic new rooftop bar and grill is finally gracing our side of town.

Shrouded in mystery, the long-awaited Gotham Grill and Rooftop Bar is finally here!

Located on Bayview Street at Runaway Bay, the foodie haunt has been four years in the making and is sure to lure an assortment of sins and heavenly pleasures when it opens to the public on Saturday 17th March.


The three-tiered Manhattan-style landmark features not one, but two restaurants and bars under the same roof and is touted as the Ridgeway Group’s most ambitious project to date.

“Northern Gold Coast was the next frontier” local restaurateur Daniel Ridgeway said.

“We needed to do something a little different to meet the needs of this locale and as such we have combined stylish dining with a casual rooftop bar…all under the same roof.”

Upon entering the flash building, guests will discover decadent 1920’s Art Décor styling and an unmissable red velvet carpet leading up a winding staircase to the twinkling skylights of the Gotham Rooftop.

On level two, which houses Gotham Grill, diners can indulge in a succulent steak selection from across Australia and New Zealand coupled with an array of cold seafood; including freshly shucked oysters, Moreton bay bugs, scallop ceviche served on the shell, lobster tails and more.

The final destination – the Gotham Rooftop Bar – is where guests can unwind in a relaxed indoor-outdoor setting with sundowner cocktails including the famed Fruit Bat libation or Alfred’s Tonic.

Some of Ridgeway’s favourites from the bar menu include the Gotham city pizza with its thick base, Napoli, pepperoni and loads of mozzarella, as well as the lobster rolls and the southern fried chicken burger with spicy mayo and a brioche bun #DROOL!

Ridgeway say’s “a little bit of the Big Apple has arrived on the Gold Coast and we cannot wait to unveil Gotham Grill and Rooftop Bar!”
