Weekend Drinks & Cocktails - Espresso Martini

Weekend Drinks & Cocktails - Espresso Martini

This week, we spent time on the Gold Coast attending an industry conference and staying at Q1 Resort & Spa in the heart of Surfers Paradise.  I must confess, Gold Coast hasn’t previously been my go-to destination, despite its close proximity from Brisbane.  I’ve seen the destination with fresh eyes this week and I was mighty impressed!  Waking early each morning to walk along the beach at sunrise was an invigorating way to start the day.  The Surfers Paradise Foreshore redevelopment is nothing short of spectacular and the city is preparing itself ahead of the Commonwealth Games in 2018 in style.

The dining scene is on the improve too and we had a fabulous night at Black Coffee Lyrics, just a short walk from Q1.  With its unassuming location (upstairs of an arcade) the fit-out is super cool with dark bricks and retro style giving it an underground feel. The food, service and atmosphere were exceptional, however the real standout was the Espresso Martini, at happy hour prices no less!
