Indulge in tropical cocktails and Jamaican-inspired eats at The Star’s Caribbean on The Lawn
International travel might be off the cards for this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the best parts of our dream holiday destinations right here at home! To help you channel those summer holiday vibes, The Star Gold Coast is throwing a tropical soiree brimming with mouth-watering Caribbean-inspired eats, summer cocktails and roving entertainment. Ready to be transported to an idyllic island escape in your own backyard? Dress to impress and take off to Caribbean on The Lawn, on now until Sunday December 13.
Things are heating up at The Star’s Garden Kitchen & Bar where, every evening from Thursday to Sunday, the lush surrounds of The Lawn are transformed into a Caribbean-style oasis. Caribbean on The Lawn gives a colourful nod to the vibrant tropical region with a bounty of Caribbean entertainment on offer – think samba dancers, a live capoeira acrobatic show, acoustic reggae tunes and DJs taking over the decks. You can enjoy all this and more under the shady palm trees or from your own tropical-themed cabana with a Bacardi cocktail in hand.
The sizzling soiree will also be sending your tastebuds on a trip to the Caribbean islands. The flavoursome menu features twice-fried plantain chips served with salsa verde, mini Cuban sandwiches with mojo-roasted pork, smoked-ham slices, Swiss cheese, sweet-and-spicy pickles and mustard, and a Jamaican jerk chicken burger. More tantalising eats for your snacking pleasure include avocado and prawn ceviche with pawpaw and toasted sourdough, smoked and charred whole corn smothered with chimichurri butter, toasted coconut and goats curd, and sweet potato empanadas with Bajan-spiced avocado dip. Want to save some dosh for your next getaway? Rock up on Thursdays and score some of these delicious delicacies for just $5 – now, that’s a red-hot deal!
