The Gold Coast is one step closer is getting a vibrant new rooftop bar and dining venue with the announcement of ‘The Exhibitionist Bar’, located in the new HOTA Gallery set to open in May.

The extravagant rooftop venue will add another dimension to the already bustling food and social scene on the Gold Coast offering a new upmarket bar experience for locals and visitors to enjoy.

Located on level five across 233 sqm of impressive indoor and outdoor terrace spaces, The Exhibitionist Bar has breathtaking panoramic views overlooking the vibrant, colourful arts precinct, sweeping views across the Gold Coast waterways, the impressive Surfers Paradise skyscape and a western outlook across the hinterland.

The Exhibitionist Bar will offer guests a sophisticated tapas style bar menu with specialty cocktails, an extensive wine list, house made sodas and local craft beer, and will also be the place to go in the gallery to for those that need a morning caffeine fix.

HOTA Head of Culinary Arts, David Ashford said The Exhibitionist Bar will deliver a spectacular destination rooftop experience in a bold new venue with enticing views, tapas and share style food with its cocktail and champagne offering the showstoppers.

“The vision behind The Exhibitionist Bar was to create an iconic venue that provides a memorable experience for our visitors,” said David.

“The building was inspired by William Robinson’s stunning painting, The Rainforest, and being at the top of the extraordinary HOTA Gallery, we have taken inspiration of being in the rainforest canopy with the stylish fit out and theming. The venue has a luxurious and relaxed style, just like the Gold Coast.”

The Exhibitionist Bar’s bar manager, Tom Angel is looking forward to welcoming Gold Coast and Brisbane locals and interstate travellers to the rooftop for an experience like no other on the Gold Coast.

“The Exhibitionist bar team can not wait to welcome our first guests in May to enjoy specialty cocktails, music, art, fabulous food, and spectacular sunsets,” said Tom.

“Just imagine finishing the day sipping a glass of champagne, sharing some tapas while watching the sunset over the Gold Coast hinterland,” he said.

HOTA Gallery is fast becoming Australia’s best contemporary cultural playground and a home for the city’s thriving cultural and artistic activity and is the centrepiece of the Gold Coast’s Cultural Precinct.

The Exhibitionist Bar will be located on level 5 of the new HOTA Gallery – 135 Bundall Rd, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217.
