A combination of bar/restaurant, nightclub and cocktail/gaming lounge, Melbas On The Park has been been entertaining the Gold Coast since 1981.
It’s big, popular and the fact it has been around for so many years indicates that they have perfected delivering exactly what people want.
Located in the nightlife precinct of Surfers Paradise, Melbas is an interesting mix: here we take a look at what it has to offer.
Restaurant and Bar
The restaurant & bar is open from midday until late every day, and serves lunch between 12pm – 3pm and dinner from 5pm – 9pm. There are set menus, an a-la-carte dinner menu and frequent specials throughout the week.
It’s a very attractive place to eat: kind of flashy, like a restaurant in a nightclub. But don’t think that you will be paying through the nose – if you take advantage of the many specials you will be getting some of the best value dining in town. And the quality of food is very good.
For example, you can (at time of writing) get a lunch special like scotch fillet/chips/salad for $9.90 any day of the week, and that includes a drink. That’s hard to beat.
Ultra Lounge and Club
The nightclub part of Melbas was totally refurbished in 2010 and is now known as the Ultra Lounge & Club. We’re big fans of the new look, they did a great job.
As is quite typical of nightclubs in Surfers, the music is mainly of the more commercial side of dance. There is also live entertainment from time to time.
Cocktail and Gaming Lounge
Melbas Cocktail & Gaming Lounge is supposedly influenced by the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas, and features a hand-painted ceiling that is a Michael Angelo replica.
The lounge area is quite large and spacious, with the gaming machines discretely situated, and is open from 10am until late every day.
As you may have noticed, we are quite fond of Melbas: the dining is good, the meal specials are a great deal and the Ultra Lounge is a nice club if you want to hear some commercial dance music.
