Get ready to enjoy a drink sky-high at the HOTA Gallery!

A vibrant new rooftop bar and dining venue called ‘The Exhibitionist Bar’ is set to open there this May.

Located on level five, across 233 sqm of indoor and outdoor terrace spaces, The Exhibitionist Bar will offer sweeping panoramic views of the Gold Coast.


As for the food, we can expect a sophisticated tapas style bar menu with specialty cocktails, an extensive wine list, house made sodas and local craft beer. It will also be the place to go in the gallery if you are in need a morning caffeine fix.

HOTA Head of Culinary Arts, David Ashford said The Exhibitionist Bar will deliver a spectacular destination rooftop experience.

“The vision behind The Exhibitionist Bar was to create an iconic venue that provides a memorable experience for our visitors,” said David.

“The building was inspired by William Robinson’s stunning painting, The Rainforest, and being at the top of the extraordinary HOTA Gallery, we have taken inspiration of being in the rainforest canopy with the stylish fit out and theming. The venue has a luxurious and relaxed style, just like the Gold Coast.”

The Exhibitionist Bar’s bar manager, Tom Angel is looking forward to welcoming Gold Coasters to the rooftop for an experience like no other.

“The Exhibitionist bar team can not wait to welcome our first guests in May to enjoy specialty cocktails, music, art, fabulous food, and spectacular sunsets,” he said.

“Just imagine finishing the day sipping a glass of champagne, sharing some tapas while watching the sunset over the Gold Coast hinterland.”
