Let’s just get one thing clear, Cali Beach is unlike anything we’ve ever seen here on the coast and indeed Australia. The incredible beachside venue encompasses four glistening pools, VIP cabanas, countless sun lounges shaded by Veuve-orange umbrellas, two world-class restaurants, multiple bars, volleyball facilities and even an outdoor moonlight cinema – seriously, it’s Disneyland for grown-ups! Excited? You should be. Perched four stories above street level on the corner of Surfers Paradise Boulevard and Elkhorn Avenue, Cali Beach is accessed via a pretty impressive 26-person glass elevator – and folks, that’s just the beginning. Not only is Cali Beach one of the most luxurious rooftop bars – well, rooftop precincts – it is undoubtedly the largest, sprawling 5000 sun-soaked square metres and boasting spectacular views over Surfers Paradise beach and the surrounding skyline. Specific details on the food and entertainment offering are being kept under wraps for now, but we’re told to expect some pretty impressive things on both fronts.
Construction of the $10-million mega lifestyle and entertainment precinct has been underway for almost 12 months, but the end result is something truly remarkable. Cali Beach is the vision of Artesian Hospitality, which is one of the country’s largest hospitality groups. Backed by more than 15 years of experience, the group employs over 350 staff and welcomes more than one million people each year to its venues – so suffice to say, the team knows what it’s doing.
Cali Beach will be open to the public on Friday September 24 at 5:00 pm. The official opening celebrations will kick off poolside on Saturday September 25 at 11:00 am sharp. As always, we’ll bring you all of the delicious details as they come to light so watch this space. Until then, keep your peepers peeled on its Instagram and Facebook.
