Night time delights on the Gold Coast

When you have finished lapping up the sunshine and relaxing on our beautiful beaches during your stay on the Gold Coast, there is plenty to do and see once the sun sets. We have come up with a few ideas of Gold Coast activities and attractions to keep you entertained at night during your stay.

Surfers Paradise comes alive at night; the streets are lined with loads of restaurants and trendy cocktail bars. The night markets along the foreshore are always a great place to take a wander; they are on Wednesday and Friday nights from 5pm until 10pm and are filled with unique art and crafts.

If you are after a dining experience that is out of this world, Dracula’s cabaret restaurant in Broadbeach is a must see!  Tickets will set you back around $80 to $100 but its well worth it. The only down side is this is an adults only show, they do have a separate Drax For Kids experience which runs at different times.  This show is really popular with locals and tourists alike so don’t forget to call and make a booking before you go!

Jupiters Casino is another great place where you can enjoy a meal and show at the same venue. The Tap Dogs and Macy Gray are among the big names coming up at Jupiters in the coming months. The casino is also full of restaurants to suit every budget, the food fantasy buffet is always a hit with the whole family, with culinary delights from around the globe, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste.

Broadbeach is home to some of the local’s favourite places to enjoy a meal and drink. Mecca Bah underneath the Oracle Resort offers the best in middle-eastern and Moroccan cuisine, the tapas are to die for. The falafels, dips, koftes and borueks with hummus… amazing!

If Thai tickles your fancy then you are in luck Chiang Mai Thai underneath Sierra Grand Resort is always an ambient place to enjoy a sensational meal. The service is always great, but be warned it can get busy on the weekend, bookings are recommended. If you fancy a steak, you cannot go past Moo Moo Bar and Grill, just down the road; it has won the accolade of best steak restaurant seven years running!

In the main street of Broadbeach, the trouble won’t be finding a tremendous place to eat, more deciding from the multitude on offer. Yellow Fin for seafood, Koi for a fine dining experience, Arigatou Japanese, Marios Italian, the choices are endless!

Broadbeach is also a hub of chic and stylish places to enjoy a drink, Lil Sister Lounge Bar is always popular, Onyx has great live music and Alto Cucina in the mall are all worth a look.

If you want to dance the night away, Envy and East88 are always pumping over the weekend. If you are looking for a younger crowd with house music and R & B head to Love Night Club or Platinum.
