Order a regular drink at these alternative bars

If you are a local on the Gold Coast then going to the same bars every weekend may seem as though you're having deja vu. For tourists, it may seem like an exciting time however, things can get a bit repetitive if your friends want to always hang out at the same spot and order the same drink. Line something new up this weekend, grab the crew and head to one of these three Gold Coast bars that have an alternative vibe. Whether you have visited these bars before or just need to go somewhere that offers something out of the ordinary, these Gold Coast bars should be your next destination when the sun goes down.

Pigs & Pints

For those of you who are located a little further south on the coast, you must spend an afternoon at Pigs & Pints in Burleigh Heads. If you are one of those people who needs a feed with a great beer or other alcoholic beverage then look no further for a great night out with friends. Tuck into a grazing plate that feeds two people with an array of juicy slow cooked meat and fresh seafood, served with tasty sides. You can choose from a wide range of craft and premium beers that include Hop Hog, Monteiths Pilsner, White Rabbit and Whale Ale that will quench your thirst after a hard day’s work at the office. If you can’t make up your mind as to which beer to buy then try four types of beer with their beer tasting box which is available all day. So when the clock hits 5pm, jump in the car and enjoy the freshest tasting beer with delicious meats which are sure to make your mouth water.
Where: 1823 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads QLD 4220

The One50 Public House is the place to eat, drink and be merry. Tucked away in Bundall, this venue boasts chic urban design for those of you looking to have a drink at a sophisticated bar. You can order a fancy cocktail at the ONE50 Public House bar which overlooks the waterfront and is a favourite for those looking to unwind after work. They also stock award-winning wine if you and your friends are after something a bit smoother on the palate. Away from the hustle and bustle of the usual bars along the Gold Coast strip, you can pull up a comfy chair and relax with friends over a few drinks. If you are up for socialising rather than shouting over loud music, order at the bar and make One50 Public House a regular on your list of places to visit. If you are feeling a bit peckish then we suggest visiting their restaurant that is influenced by the taste of New York.
Where: 150 Bundall Road, Bundall QLD 4217


Dance and drink, elsewhere - Gold Coast
Dance and drink, elsewhere – Gold Coast

Ironically there is nowhere else you would rather be than at elsewhere in Surfers Paradise. elsewhere has made a name for itself as the staple for individuals looking to enjoy a night out that showcases different sounds and drinks. With many local, national and international events every weekend, elsewhere always showcases something out of the ordinary which is bound to keep you coming back for more with friends. If you also want to dance to the music than we suggest ordering their Espresso Martini which comes in a dance proof cup if you want to get down. This social club has everything you could possibly want and marches to its own beat in the heart of Surfers Paradise. For a magical night filled with mayhem, laughter and fantastic drinks, head to elsewhere which will have you celebrating until sunrise.
