1) BreadNButter

Since you are in the market for someone to be your bread and butter too, it is not out of place that you go to a place named so.

BreadnButter finds its humble abode on the Southern region of the Gold Coast and remains one of the Gold Coast bars most famed for hookups and pickups. Besides that, they also excel at what they do – being a bar.

The experience at BreadnButter starts with the setup of the restaurant which serves a choice of special meals that you won’t get elsewhere. Even if you got them elsewhere, it would not be prepared with the same level of detail as this one.

In there, the menu ranges from an assortment of wood-fired pizzas to those Spanish tapas that you love. That is finished off with some of the best cocktails, all thanks to the amazing hands tending the bars.

Perhaps the most important region for you will be the lounge area which makes pickups even more fun. That takes the seriousness out of the bar setting, allowing you and your potential contact to feel more at home around one another.

2) The Scottish Prince

If the name of this bar is not enough to make you think about how exciting and exotic it can be, we suggest you take a trip to Palm Beach and see what it is all about for yourself.

The bar has been around since the year 2017 and it has since made a name for itself. It started off living true to its name, carrying a wide array of whiskeys for sippers from all around the world. These are some of the best whiskey that you will not find anywhere too, so you’re welcome if that is what you were looking for.

Along the line, the bar brought in an assortment of cocktails and introduced more food options to make the evening a pleasant one for you.

On top of that, they set the mood for any conversation you can have with their live blues music. Occasionally, you can feel the mood to step to some of the beats – and the Scottish Prince will love to see your moves.

3) The Island Rooftop

It is one thing to have the drinks to lubricate all the conversations that you will be having. It is yet another thing to have those perfect nibbles to keep your mouth busy and stomach filled as you burn through energy while having fun. Better than all that, though, is having a picturesque location supplying the magical backdrop for the ideal evening.’

That is what The Island Rooftop brings to the table.

Having the sights of CBD in its line, this singles bar brings with a dominant Californian vibe. Beyond the other offerings, the club is also famed for the kind of music that comes blasting out of it. While there is a selection of live bands to pick from on certain days, the roster of DJs here is just as impressive.

It is, thus, little wonder why singles interesting in dating in Gold Coast will also be attracted to places like this. After all, meeting someone here shows that they have a good taste to start with.

When you are there, don’t forget to order the Island Colada. Thank us later.

4) Soho Place

This used to be known as the first small bar in the Gold Coast, and it has grown to be so much more than that.

Like we said above, the bar is founded on the beliefs of keeping things small and tightly knit. It is, thus, the ideal drinking hole for singles that do not want all the usual bustle and crowd that comes with other bars. 

The best thing about this place is how it has not sacrificed its quality and taste in favor of keeping a small outlook. Thus, it is not only a place to go meet with other singles – but you can have a great time here equally.

The selection of the Soho Bar’s location is ideal for more reasons than one. 

On the one hand, it is established on the Broadbeach which is a sight to behold on its own. On the other hand, it also shares borders with some of the best next level eateries in the area. This is part of the reason why it would be a top spot for singles in the Gold Coast area – seeing as they have a lot more reason to be here.

Before you go knocking on their door, we should probably tell you that Soho Place serves only drinks. That is no problem though since it just gives you an excuse to ‘go somewhere else’ with your pick-up for the evening. At the same time, you can order some UberEATS and have your food delivered to the bar.

5) Granddad Jack’s Distillery

This is a little different from the other bars on our list for a couple of reasons.

The most important is in how you approach the Granddad Jack’s Craft Distillery. While it could be a place you go to find other singles, we like it best when you go there with another Gold Coast single and discover new things together.

The first thing that catches your attention about this bar is the originality in its design. Started with exposed brick walls and a tin ceiling to be finished off with recycled wood and steel beams, the bar is as special as they come.

Instead of just ordering drinks off the menu, too, they allow you to make your gin in-house. That could be a fun thing to try with another single, don’t you think?

6) Rosella’s Bar

There is a vibe that comes with new bars, and that is what the singles are chasing to Rosella’s

This might not have started as a bar for the Gold Coast singles, but it has fast become the spot to find the best and creamiest humans of the city. That is made possible by the fine service and options on the menu at Rosella’s too.

Every day, the capable bartenders outdo themselves in crafting some of the most creative cocktails you can come across. One taste is enough to get you hooked, but make sure to have extra capacity to try the other cocktails on the list. 

While you are doing so, don’t forget to check out their list of edibles too for something to go with those amazing drinks.

We should probably let you know that this bar is famous for the locals, so most people in here might know one another. You might want to make your first tour there to settle in with the vibes and get accustomed to the environment. 

However, nothing is stopping you from giving the green lights to that fine young lady/man.

7) Melbas On The Park

It is not often that we see a bar location which can also double as a party destination. Fortunately, that is what we have here at Melbas on the Park. That also explains why singles will love to come here to have some good time – part of which is meeting someone new for the evening too.

Always open and bubbling till the wee hours of the morning, there is no shortage of things to do when you are here. At the bar, you get to grab some of the finest drinks – and you can also get a bite at the restaurant area.

Melbas on the Park stands out from the other bars on this list with the kind of technology-based setup that it enjoys. Once you enter, it is obvious that a lot of thought went into the lighting system and sound coming out of this bar. The DJs are all for making the sound experience pop too, throwing in a mix of commercial, house, dance and funk genres.

In short, you don’t want to miss out on the amazing singles who find this to be their abode for the free evenings.

8) Komune

Komune excels in showing that it can be more than just a bar, but that is what it comes to you as. For the single females on this list, Komune is best suited to you as it allows you to scope out your future partner in all their glory before they even walk up to you.

How do we mean? 

The Komune bar area comes with a standard-sized, fun-looking pool to its name. Of course, you might be tempted to get in – but we don’t think you want to mess up your hair and makeup just yet. Now that we have gotten that out of the way, we are sure that the men don’t mind.

Not only do they not mind, but they know that you are there to scope out the most eligible one of them. Best believe they will get onto the water and do their thing while knowing that you are watching their every move. What other forms of mating dance can get more sensual than this?

Besides that, the first thing that we should have told you about Komune is that it finds home in Coolangatta. Over the years, this is a location that has matured into a breeding ground for some of the finest men in all of the Gold Coast.

9) Garden Kitchen And Bar

The name already tells you that this is more than just a bar, so we won’t spend too much time telling you about that anymore. What we will tell you, though, is that this is one of those bars with the Instagram-worthy interiors and landscape. 

If that means anything, it is that the men will find the ladies here – and that the single ladies will be here too. That is why we want you to head there too.

Fortunately, you won’t be going there for the hook-ups only. This bar is a vibrant and relaxing place that you can just pop into at any time of the day to get off from every other thing. No matter when you get in, you might also find your potential partner trying to escape everything for the serenity inside the bar.

10) Justin Lane Rooftop

Many people don’t see this as a bar, but it qualifies in more ways than one.

The rooftop is blessed with a view of the beach at any time of the day when you get there. Speaking of times, the Justin Lane Rooftop shines bright in the afternoons too, no pun intended. This makes it one of those fun Gold Coast bars that you can pop into at any time of the day.

The mood here is usually that of a party vibe. Thus, you can always expect to find the young and hip here. Make sure you dress the part and speak the part before you enter the social scene in this club to start mingling. If you are not looking for a good time and fun, it is not the place for you.

11) Aloha Bar And Dining

There is always the joke about not taking someone you like to this bar since you will end up finding someone else there. That is the kind of goodness and spread of singles in Gold Coast that you will find here. That almost leaves you to wonder what brings everyone here – besides the hot men and fine women that frequent the bar, that is.

To start with would be the tiki-vibe that this bar gives off, allowing the patrons a taste of exoticness alongside every swig from their cups. The bar is also filled with an assortment of greenery which is accentuated by the generous splash of colors.

When you are in the bar, there is another popular saying that “it’s always summer in Aloha.’ If you don’t know what that means yet, you will find out there. A useful tip though: always go in your party shirts.

12) The Roosevelt Lounge

Doesn’t that just sound fancy? Well, it looks fancy too.

You will be able to tell that this is one of the new bars in the area, but its five-star status is not one to contend. On entering, you will almost mistake this bar for some other establishment, given the taste and culture that has gone into its setup.

Red velvet accents are married to the choice chandeliers and antiquities to throw you off your balance. You will soon regain this balance when you find the luxe leather lounges above the main bar area. But then, the diverse range of perfectly curated cocktails will take that balance away yet again.

Still wondering how this one made it to the list of the top Gold Coast bars for singles to hook up? We bet not.

13) Lockwood Bar

We have mentioned a couple of laid-back bars on this list, but we feel like they are not well represented enough. That is why we will put the Lockwood bar back into the mix.

The setup is simple yet speaks volumes. Exposed brick walls matched with the draped velvet entrance are supposed to make a statement, and they do this quite alright. Heading over to the bartender, you get a small selection of whiskeys that you can have anyhow you want it.

Either at the bar table or in the general room will most likely be another single like you. You share a lot in common – needing some time to blow steam off and coming to a place as quaint as this to do so. That, however, does not mean that they are not interested in a conversation.

All it takes to get things started is the first hello.

14) Nineteen At The Star

Trust us when we tell you that this fine name doesn’t even begin to do justice to what the bar holds. Like most bars, this one is open at different times of the day too. However, it only comes alive with the glams of the night.

Nineteen at the Star tries to get you close to a star itself, seeing as it is located high up on the 19th floor of a luxury hotel. If that does not already tell you about the kind of people you will find here, wait till you see it for yourself.

When at the bar, you also have the nicest scenes to inspire you to be your best self on the night. How would you light to gaze over the breadth of the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful night skyline of the city while you share jokes with a new friend?

15) Burleigh Pavilion

For those who like to have some fun at the beach, almost nothing beats enjoying the luxurious beachfront location that this bar enjoys.

The bar might be on the map for its lineup of drinks for different kinds of tastes, but the food options here are to die for too. Of course, nothing more than the usual wood-fired pizzas and those chips/fishes that have been baptized in beer – but this taste different.

If nothing else, the food and drink here are enough to attract troves of single people to the Burleigh Pavilion. And oh, the singles love the beach too.
