21 March 2018, Written by David Simmons
Ahead of its official launch on Friday, The Star Gold Coast has revealed a sneak peak of its new rooftop venue, Nineteen at The Star.
Designed with high-end class and sophistication in mind, the rooftop venue promises to "prioritise and celebrate the natural beauty" of the Gold Coast.
Located on the top level of The Darling, The Star's new luxury suite hotel, the unique new rooftop restaurant and bar will officially open on Friday March 23. The new venue offers a dining and entertainment experience with spectacular coastal and city skyline views.
Star Entertainment Group managing director Queensland Geoff Hogg says the style and design of Nineteen epitomises Gold Coast high-end dining.
"Nineteen at The Star has been carefully designed for those who seek a truly high-class venue with an eye for design and with a desire to experience only the very best in dining and entertainment," says Hogg.
"The launch of Nineteen at The Star will be a defining moment in embedding The Star Gold Coast as a world-class integrated resort and an absolute must-see for visitors to our city."
The Star tapped Gold Coast restaurateur Simon Gloftis and entertainment guru Billy Cross (both pictured) to develop Nineteen at The Star. Cross says Nineteen at The Star is one of his favourite projects that he's worked on in his long career.
"I have devoted the past three decades to creating iconic entertainment experiences spanning two continents but right now the spotlight is on our City, and Australia and the world is just days away from experiencing one of the country's most exciting new venues," says Cross.
The venue incorporates its enviable rooftop location with cutting-edge design to create a bar suited for 300 to 500 guests. The Star hopes to lure some of the best local and international DJs to perform at the rooftop location.
Simon Gloftis, owner of popular Greek restaurant Hellenika, says the dining experience at Nineteen at The Star is unique and exciting.
"People crave the new and the different and for me it is all about continually revolutionising how we deliver exceptional food experiences with a unique twist," says Gloftis.
"We are delivering a high-end, seasonal produce-driven experience with a focus on simplicity and elegance with signature dishes including a Rock Lobster Bolognese, and a 400g Wagyu Sirloin Kiwami MB9."
The venue's 110-seat restaurant overlooks an infinity pool and the Gold Coast skyline, whilst also featuring a private dining area for the intimate and the exclusive.
The venue was designed in partnership with award-winning firm Mim Design, and marrys the iconic natural elements of the Gold Coast with premium custom-made materials and innovative interior design.
The restaurant, with a rich green colour palette reminiscent of the hinterland, features large architectural elements of stone and vertical brass detailing enhancing the volume of the dining space.
The colours most prevalent in Nineteen at The Star are elegant forest greens, pumice whites, teal ocean blues and softly gilded brass colours, taking inspiration from the surrounding environment.
The venue will be open for bookings from Saturday March 24.
