Chapter & Verse bar and lounge
Please note: Chapter & Verse will be temporarily closed for renovations from Monday 31st August, and will reopen in December 2020.
A casual cafe by day, bar after dark, Chapter & Verse bar and lounge at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa offers a fresh, innovative range of food and beverages, from freshly ground coffee and all-day breakfast, to regionally inspired cafe fare and share plates, through to elegant high tea and artfully crafted cocktails. Made for long lunches that effortlessly roll into cocktail-filled evenings, Chapter & Verse bar and lounge appeals equally to families on holiday, business travellers and locals, as a venue of style but not pretense. Sink into one of the low-set couches and sip on a deliciously refreshing cocktail of smashed cucumber, fresh thyme and lemon, a nip of Hendricks gin and topped with soda as you contemplate which of the dishes to order first. The crispy potato skins loaded with sour cream, barbecue bacon and shaved parmesan are pretty hard to pass up, as are the locally sourced grilled prawns coated with chilli and garlic. If you simply can’t decide, the share platters are a great way to go. If you don’t subscribe to the mantra that sharing is caring, the big bites menu is probably more your style and offers delights such as seared Palm Beach reef tuna, char-grilled chicken breast and a grilled Darling Down sirloin steak sandwich.
