Chameleon Lounge Bar
Chameleon Lounge Bar is a hetero-friendly LGBTQIA+ lounge bar in Broadbeach. Perched along Surf Parade, the refined new watering hole is a safe space for everyone in the community to enjoy a drink and a show. Forget outdated stereotypes of dark and dingy nightclubs, Chameleon is a sophisticated sip spot complete with brushed gold coffee (cocktail) tables and plush velvet seating in gemstone pink, emerald green and navy blue. At its core, Chameleon Lounge Bar is about fun and showcases a constantly rotating line-up of entertainment including live music, drag trivia, open stage night (which is kind of like an open mic night but for drag performers) and a production show affectionately called Dream Queens, starring Venus Amore, Justine Kace and Poppy Maurie. Chameleon shakes and stirs a satisfying selection of sips ranging from classics (cosmos and French martinis) through to a couple of signature creations including the Chameleon Espresso Martini with vodka, Kahlua, Liqor 43, Frangelico and Baileys. The colour of the ambient lights (and the jellyfish at the front) correspond with an hourly drink special and if it happens to be your birthday, you can score yourself a special birthday shot (happy birthday to you!). The menu meanders from share-style tapas with an Asian fusion twist through to sourdough pizza, cheese boards, antipasto and oysters.
