Jupiters Gold Coast opened the doors to its new restaurant Garden Kitchen & Bar this week, the third venue to open as part of the property’s landmark $345 million transformation.
Embracing the Gold Coast’s enviable climate and luxurious laidback lifestyle, Garden Kitchen & Bar showcases some of the best the region has to offer, inviting guests to experiences the freshest seasonal produce and world-class design.
The restaurant features a generous dining and lavish bar area bathed in natural light, an open kitchen equipped with Chef’s Rotisserie, an abundance of cascading greenery and a spacious outdoor deck overlooking the property’s lush tropical gardens.
Star Entertainment Group Managing Director, Geoff Hogg says Garden Kitchen & Bar draws inspiration from the surrounding natural elements to celebrate the City’s vibrant atmosphere.
“Garden Kitchen & Bar showcases some of the freshest, seasonal produce and very best in design, incorporating an abundance of light-filled space and elegant simplicity that allows our guests to truly embrace the Gold Coast lifestyle,” he says.
“It’s everything we hoped for and more – you find yourself captivated from the moment you arrive with vibrant live foliage adorning the front entrance feature wall.”
“We’re extremely excited to open doors and share our latest dining experience with the public.”
Anchored in a lush garden setting, Garden Kitchen & Bar stretches across more than double the footprint of the former The PA Pub, its contemporary furnishings, stylish palette and open plan design forming a striking contrast to the venue’s interior-facing predecessor.
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, the restaurant caters to all, with dishes like the Pitaya bowl with toasted granola and fresh fruit for breakfast, roasted and raw vegetable quinoa salad for lunch and Chef’s Rotisserie served with smashed potatoes and fresh rocket salad in the evening. Chef’s use the freshest of ingredients too, with local produce and a selection of garnishes and herbs hand-picked from the property’s onsite herb garden.
For a cold beverage head to the indoor bar, serving up a selection of handcrafted beers, wine on tap, a variety of signature cocktails and shared pitchers full of fresh flavours and local ingredients.
For the early risers, Garden Kitchen & Bar also offers a blend of 100% certified Arabica coffee beans and cold brew coffees.
Geoff says the restaurant is yet another glimpse of the many exciting things to come for the iconic property as part of its $345 million transformation.
“Cucina Vivo and Kiyomi have both been highly successful since opening in December 2014 and it’s been incredible to hear all the amazing feedback each of the restaurants has received,” he says.
Geoff says the team is now focused on the next stage of the investment with all remaining hotel rooms and further dining options to be unveiled this year, while construction on the centrepiece of the transformation, the six-star all suite tower, also continues at the front of the property.
Garden Kitchen & Bar is located on the Ground Level of Jupiters Gold Coast and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, from 7am until late.
