Four weeks in and you’d be hard pressed to recognise the previous venue. Walls have come down, the bar has been demolished, the venue has been extended and the builders now have a clean canvas to work with.
When it came to choosing the right design studio to help them create their first world class Seafood Restaurant -BLOWFISH Ocean Grill + Bar, Steve & Autumn didn’t think twice – they knew it had to be Gold Coast based SPACE CUBED DESIGN STUDIO.
“SPACE CUBED have a fabulous portfolio and we’ve admired their work for a very long time. We wanted to work with a team that was very creative and one that could bring our vision to life,” Steve & Autumn said.
“We are thrilled with what they’ve created, and we can’t wait for our customers to see it.”
SPACE CUBED Associate Interior Designer Jill Chilton has been the lead on this project and has created an immersive coastal dining experience.
“The interior concept takes a romantic approach to the idea that – “We are all of the sea”. The clients wanted to create an immersive dining experience for their guests, and this narrative is carried throughout the venue through the expression of materials and details that all share a coastal sensibility. Our decisions were largely inspired by the mythical tales of the seductively beautiful creatures that lured mariners with their siren songs, resulting in a serene, yet whimsical dining experience,” said Jill.
One of the unique features of the restaurant is the private dining space – The Ripple Room which is located on the upper floor. In contrast to the sea green, pearly white and sun-bleached timber that adorns the downstairs area, the design The Ripple Room embraces the darker colours of the ocean depths, and the qualities of iridescent fish scales.
BLOWFISH OCEAN GRILL + BAR is located at 2 Oracle Blvd, Broadbeach and will open on Friday 24 November, 2023.
Bookings from opening day have been very strong since they went live last week and Steven & Autumn suggest businesses book early for their end of year/Christmas celebrations, particularly if they are wanting to dine in The Ripple Room, as this will be one of the only private dining spaces on the Gold Coast.
