Stingray Bar & Lounge
Qt Gold Coast
Located in the base of uber hip QT Gold Coast hotel , Stingray Bar and Lounge is a retro Californian timewarp with the coolest martinis in town.
The up market lounge bar screams ‘yeah baby’ with an Austin Powers meets fancy dress party vibe within the chic and colourful Surfers Paradise hotel.
Textiles from the 60s cover the reserved lounges that sit in front of oblique stone features, replacing the walls.
High tables fill the open spaces while the central bar provide stools for those keen to watch the staff mix up a swarm of cocktails inspired by the fifty in house tequilas as well as the selection for the health-conscious.
The espresso martini goes down a treat with the perfect balance of sweetness and coffee beans for decoration on top.
Meanwhile for those who like it hot, the sizeable Mexican meals, such as hot wings and tacos, float past on trays to the tables of in-house diners.
