ABOUT Sandbar
Waterfront Function Rooms

After 20 years of serving locals and visitors in Surfers Paradise, Sandbar now has a chic new fit out right opposite the beach that's perfect for all kinds of events. Put yourself in the perfect alfresco place to entertain as the warm day eases into a breezy night hosted by the Gold Coast’s good time dealers. Think of it as an endless summer vibe with a shot of tequila on the side. Stunning event menus, sublime beachy cocktails and over 100 beers on the pour – it’s all about good time events on the Sandbar!  They like to keep it simple by offering no fuss custom packages that make it easy to select exactly what you want allocated to an all-inclusive budget. Whether it’s an intimate private party or large corporate gig, the flexible event menus feature fresh selections of boutique mingling specialties. To quote the Executive Chef, “we’ve got all the recipes for success to make any event at Sandbar one to remember”.

Sandbar offers a range of event spaces depending on group size and preferred staging style. Entertainment and theming can be included in any of these spaces.


This is the perfect space for intimate events with Riviera style table seating on the outside lawn and adjoining booths and large communal bench just inside for those who’d like to chill out seated. There’s plenty of standing room with an easy bar access plus a private entrance option for an exclusive guest welcome. Café Corfu can be made into an exclusive space with a custom timber partition.

This is the largest and most popular event space due to its flexible staging and privacy options. The alfresco area features natural teak tables, booths and bench seating – perfect for a casual party vibe delivered in chic coastal surrounds. Guests can kickback on the lounge and the long indoor-outdoor marble bench is the perfect spot for a buffet, DJ or display. Our huge bar also adjoins the Riva Beach Lounge offering quick guest drinks service.
