Looking for a spot to celebrate the festive season this year? Look no further. Introducing the newest social hot spot on the Gold Coast, Bassk.

3. Garden State Hotel, Melbourne, VIC
Known for its rich interior, an abundance of greenery, glass ceilings, a variety of different spaces, and quality service, Garden State Hotel is everything you want in a venue. Casual Friday after work drinks, to function hire and sit down menu, this place caters for all.
Fun fact: The space was actually built around the trees! The trees were the focus of the space, having to be brought in by crane prior to the construction
of the space itself.
4. Sandbar, Gold Coast, QLD
Family owned and operated for over 20 years, Surfers Sandbar encapsulates all things Gold Coast and summer. Sandbar was the first venue to ever have Balter on tap and did we mention that they are also home to the second largest beer list in QLD.
Sandbar trades early morning to late at night, and is only a few steps away from the beautiful Surfers Paradise beach. Recently undergoing a renovation,
Sandbar not only offers amazing food, cocktails, interiors and views, but also great service. Add this one to your list for sure! Just look for the
blue and white umbrellas.
5. Halycon house
You can find our full range of tinnies at Halycon House in Cabarita Beach. Halycon House is best known for its very 'grammable' (A person, place, event, or contextual situation that is worthy of being posted on Instagram) exterior, modern interior, location, and it's hat awarded restaurant, Paper Daisy.
The best thing about Halycon house is you can eat, sleep, sun bake and play here...basically, no reason to ever leave (they even hire out bikes). Our recommendation is to sit outside, or by the pool, sip on a nice cold XPA and order the prawn salad or prawn sanga from the bar menu. You can thank us later.
