The Avenue is the heart of entertainment in Surfers Paradise and have done so since 1984.

At last the Jazz Quartet you’ve been waiting for…. The Youngkeys bring the joy of jazz to the Gold Coast, influenced by such great jazz pianists like Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett. Four amazing musicians bringing you their unique delivery of fabulous Jazz tunes such as ‘Autumn Leaves’ & ‘Summertime’, and from ‘Night & Day’ to ‘Moondance’ and much more music that will move you.

Music is what feelings sound like! Let The Youngkeys stir those feelings! “

Jazz is an attitude..a challenge to establishment…a different point of view…a portal of new discovery…a hybrid of all that has been, from Chopin to Jarrett, from jungle drums to theremin. It lives in the now and reaches for future collective consciousness without words in the universal language of vibrational energy”

If you've partied with us recently, you would have noticed that "The Backroom" is well lit and welcoming all and this Friday night we've got Celebrity DJ, Gemstar taking to the decks from 9.30pm to celebrate!

Did you know "The Backroom" hosts some of Gold Coast's favourite party bands on Thursday and Sunday nights?  Did you know it's host to special events such as comedy and poker nights and is available for hire for private functions?   It's stage also comes to life on Monday nights when Karin hosts Open Mic, with the invitation open to anyone who thinks they've got talent.

The entertainment options don't stop there, with solo singer/songwriters serving up tunes on Sunday afternoons in the front bar from 2.30pm.   Then there's Tuesday and Wednesday nights!  We didn't get named as one of the top five places to head out in Surfers Paradise for no reason!

DJ Gemstar will be performing every Friday night until the early hours of Saturday and she's got everyone's favourites on her playlist!  Get prepared to PARTY!

VIP Experience Avenue Style

VIP Experience Avenue Style

We had our first function in our VIP Penthouse suite on Saturday night and the pop of the champagne corks saw the party kick off with a bang! 

The space caters for a maximum of 30 people and is geared towards intimate group celebrations.   With the personalised bar service, quirky yet stylish surroundings, own bathroom facilities and VIP spiral staircase entry into our nightclub, our birthday girl's guests were impressed beyond belief. 

"The most extravagant party room I've ever laid eyes on and it's unbelievable that you don't charge a room hire fee," said one party goer.   There is no room hire fee for our function areas, but a minimum spend does apply....It won't break the budget though :)

It was grand final weekend, we had two birthday functions thrown in the mix and our venue was bursting at the seams!  

Celebrating a birthday or special occasion?  You won't beat The VIP Avenue Experience!  Check out our options on the functions page.



All about our TANKS!

All about our TANKS!

We wanted our beer to be as fresh as our new venue, so Brewery Fresh Carlton Draught Tank Beer was an obvious option to have on tap!

You can’t miss the polished copper tanks when walking through our doors.  Some patrons believe they’ve been purpose built as art pieces, others sit with questionable looks on their faces whilst trying to determine their purpose. 

Unpasteurised beer….the tanks are full of it!  Unlike other beers, it hasn’t been heated to 70 degrees during the brewing process, it’s decanted straight from the tank and transported in chilled delivery tankers straight from the brewery.  It's also designed to be consumed within 14 days of we mean it when we say we've got the freshest beer in town!  (We must say we feel pretty damn special too, being one of only four places in Queensland selected to serve.)

So next time you're in, ask for a Carlton Draught coldie - you'll taste the difference!



We were lucky enough to be joined by leading foodie instagrammers and bloggers on Sunday and it was like watching the paparazzi at a Lady Gaga concert ... lights, camera and loads of action!

Coming in with absolutely no expectations and leaving with extremely high reviews of our food, service and sophisticated style, the crew chowed down to a smorgasbord of our tasty morsels.  On serving up all-time favourites like our crusted miso tuna and flashed calamari small plates, to the garlic lamb cutlets and crispy Asian pork belly "All About Me" larger plates, the cameras came out and the plates were poked, prodded and photographed.  A spectacle for us and all our dining on-lookers.  The highlight of the day had to be the whole lamb shoulder and the quirky presentation atop two tomato tins also didn't go unnoticed! 

Chef's gone troppo since the group's rave reviews and has decided to serve the lamb as a "Sunday Signature Special".  It's served for 2 or more with sides of potatoes, greens and salsa fresca for a bank balance friendly price of only $60!

And here you were thinking your days of grabbing a granny were gone!  Not for a few months of Sundays at least!   Hang her apron, chauffeur her into The Avenue and treat her to a family Sunday roast like no other!

Please just do us a favour.....hashtag those pics!  #theavenuesurfers #grannysrule



It's been a whirlwind eight weeks since opening our doors and we've already gained a reputation as "the best place to party in Surfers Paradise"!

Looking for a function room to hold a special event?  Want to be treated like royalty with VIP service?  Our intimate "Tea Room" is up for hire, with a no-charge introductory offer for the next few months!  Birthdays, hens parties, just because!

Not only are we the newest nightclub in Surfers Paradise, we've got the quirkiest drinks menu, the tastiest food offerings and we serve up our gourmet pizza on weekends until 2am!  Don't forget our live music - we just had Gold Coast'er Benny D Williams rock the roof off, with original and covers music thrown in the mix through the week.

What can we say!  We love our new home and we can't wait for you to come join in the fun!  Did we mention we can also curb your caffeine craving from 10am?
