The Star Gold Coast is taking the food and beverage game to the next level, with another five new places to eat and drink coming soon to the luxe Broadbeach hotel.
An epic new sports bar, cafeteria-style eatery, two stylish new bars and a revitalised Chinese restaurant are the newest additions due to open at The Star before the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The modern new food and beverage experiences will be sure to boost The Star’s reputation as the Gold Coast’s ultimate dining and entertainment destination, having already opened six highly popular venues.

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.
Mr Hogg says the new venues are following in the footsteps of their sister, The Star Sydney.
“Guests can 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.”
The highly anticipated new Sports Bar, equipped with the latest technology, will be sure to immerse sports enthusiasts in the heart of the action through a large LED super screen broadcasting all the unmissable matches, races and contests from every corner of the globe.
Additional television screens will also be fitted throughout the venue along with three VIP private booths.
Opposite the Sports Bar, existing cafeteria eatery Bite will undergo a significant overhaul to become The Star’s new Food Quarter, offering more relaxed-style dining.
The current J-Bar will also undergo an exciting transformation into two new bars – Cherry and Latitude, which has been described as an elegant lounge bar.
In the Atrium area, Chinese restaurant Zen will close to undergo a makeover to receive a fresh new look to complement a revitalised menu and a new, all-season outdoor terrace will provide connectivity between the existing hotel and new six-star tower.
Geoff Hogg said there would be some great opportunities for locals to join The Star team as the year progressed and encouraged hospitality enthusiasts to enquire.
“With the opening of another five food and beverage outlets and our luxury new six-star hotel before the 2018 Commonwealth Games, we’ll see a significant expansion of our team in the coming months,” he said.
“Ongoing investment in the Gold Coast is an absolute necessity and we’re committed to continually evolving our offering to drive vital economic benefits for the region.”
The Star’s J bar will continue to trade until late July, when it will close to undergo a full refurbishment.
Bite will close from September and is expected to unveil its new-look and name ahead of the festive season, while the new Sports Bar will open in early 2018.
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.
