The Gold Coast has a wide range of nightlife spots, most famously being the bars, pubs and clubs scattered throughout Surfers Paradise, the restaurants and wine bars of Broadbeach, the southern dining and drinking precincts such as Burleigh, Nobbys and Coolangatta, The Star Gold Coast casino, dozens of local taverns, live music venues and surf clubs which line the foreshore.
As a clubbers paradise, the Gold Coast falls somewhere between Ibiza and Bondi Beach with late night clubs and fashionable bars. The Coast is home to about four large nightclubs which are known for hosting regular touring DJs, dozens of boutique clubs catering for a diverse range of musical tastes and styles which provide holiday makers and locals with a place to dance to the latest top 40 tunes.
