The Star Gold Coast Reveals Design Inspiration Behind Luxury New Rooftop Destination

October 17, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

A cutting edge vision for rooftop dining that embodied sophistication and celebrated the natural beauty of the Gold Coast was identified as the design inspiration for The Star Gold Coast’s premium new rooftop venue, Nineteen at The Star.Located on the top level of the recently opened luxury suite hotel, The Darling, the impressive new restaurant and bar welcomed its first guests in March this year, offering a superior dining and beverage experience with spectacular ocean and city line views.

In partnership with multi award-winning firm Mim Design, the architectural concept for Nineteen at The Star was born through a vision of marrying the iconic natural elements of the Gold Coast with premium custom-made materials and innovative interior design to create a leading, world-class venue.

In a first for The Star Gold Coast, Nineteen at The Star was the much anticipated result of a joint project with high profile duo, successful local restaurateur Simon Gloftis and entertainment guru Billy Cross, as part of its existing $850 million redevelopment plan.

The Star Entertainment Group Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg said the design concept and vibe created at the venue had redefined the high end dining experience on the Gold Coast.

“As the hero feature and final element of our initial phase of redevelopment, Nineteen at The Star has delivered a destination akin to some of the world’s finest rooftop dining venues,” Mr Hogg said.

“Nineteen at The Star features a 150-seat restaurant, opening out onto a stunning infinity pool overlooking the incredible Gold Coast skyline, as well as a private dining area catering to more intimate functions.

“The premium bar, oozing style and class, and designed to entertain 300-500 guests, plays host to local and international DJ’s, and features an extensive beverage and cocktail list as well as private booths and a VIP Bar.

“We are incredibly proud to have created a new and highly sought-after entertainment experience alongside Billy and Simon, and one which truly raises the bar in terms of The Star Gold Coast’s food and beverage offering.

Mim Design Principal Miriam Fanning said the aesthetic of Nineteen at The Star was a unique global style.

“We feel Nineteen at The Star is an iconic statement – good design is timeless and we believe this venue has set the bar beyond just being a trend, and its uniqueness adds to the nature of the site,” Ms Fanning said.

“The interior feel of each space captures the elements of the Gold Coast – luminescent water line views, dappled sunsets and strong horizon lines all play a part in its design philosophy.

“It is important to embrace a venue’s natural surrounds, so you will find colour palettes reflective of the sunset’s lustrous effect on the ocean horizon, greens mirroring the nearby Tamborine and Springbrook mountains, and softly gilded brass reflective of the glittering hue of the coastal city’s night skyline.”

Upon entry to Nineteen at the Star, guests are greeted with a seamless and glittering luxe space.

Stone flooring and gilded finishes draw your eye to the venue’s spectacular centrepiece – a floating, undulating chandelier – and onwards to the stunning infinity pool, restaurant and the bar.

With a rich green colour palette reminiscent of the surrounding hinterland, the restaurant features large architectural elements of stone, double-height spaces including a vast wine room, and vertical brass detailing,  nhancing the volume of the dining space. A sweeping curved stair leads to a beautifully finished private dining room where guests are enveloped in rich decadent finishes, while a private bar and cognac wall create a private, bespoke dining experience.

Lounging in the bar and VIP space is all glamour, with guests able to enjoy wrapping velvet banquettes, feature chairs and access to private VIP amenities, which have been designed to emulate luxury in every form. The atmosphere exudes elegance, with stone bars and a palette of gentle blues and teals creating an ambience of opulence and excitement.

The colours most prevalent in Nineteen at The Star are elegant forest greens, pumice whites, teal ocean blues and softly gilded brass colours, which all have reference to the surrounding environments, as well as ensuring they are ‘feel good’ hues in the colour spectrum. The bar is lighter and reminiscent of a beautiful cocktail, while the restaurant is strong and fresh, an interior that matches the menu.

From its double-heighted, glass framed wine room with a capacity to hold more than 3,500 bottles that was built in close consultation with experts in the wine arena, through to the floating chandeliers carefully created by a specialist Australian supplier, the majority of Nineteen at The Star’s feature elements are custom designed.

The restaurant and bar is located on Level 19 of The Star Gold Coast’s new luxury suite hotel The Darling and is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Saturday.
