Aloha Bar & Dining
Venture down the alleyway behind Main Place and let the little gold palm trees lead the way to Broadbeach’s new hidden haunt, Aloha Bar & Dining. Here for a good time not a long one, the pop-up tiki-themed bar is beautifully and elaborately decked out with retro cane furniture, pin-up girls, nautical pieces and even a faux palm tree awning the main dining area. Do your tastebuds a favour and order a banana daiquiri or if you’re after something with a little more kick, the Oil Change is a coconut-ty concoction of Angostura five-year-old rum and bitters served in a vintage oil can. If you fancy a nibble with your tipple, pick at a plate of planatins (banana leaves) with tangy pineapple guacamole or the venue’s specialty poke (pronounced po-keh); a Hawaiian fish salad with coconut rice and crispy wontons. The only downside to Aloha Bar & Dining is that it won’t be around forever so you better make the most of it while it’s here.
