Mention the word “party destination” and the place that pops into mind is the Gold Coast. The Queensland seaside holiday region has a buzzing night life of bars, nightclubs and music venues. And you don’t even have to set off outside your lodgings to have a great time as most hotels have merrymaking programmed into their DNA. So don’t be a party pooper. Frock up and let the champagne flow. Here are our top five hotels to party at on the GoldCoast.

1- Palazzo Versace 

Everyone knows Palazzo Versace is the spot to party in style. The brainchild of Gianni Versace continues to wow A-list party goers with its eternally fashionable style and waterfront location.

It’s the place to slip on your best party clothes and soak up the ambience of marble and mosaic.

From clicking cocktail glasses in a poolside cabana in the unique ‘Water Salon’ and the private beach to hanging around the sleek Vie Bar, located on the boardwalk with lovely views of the marina.

2-Hilton’s Surfers Paradise 


Guests partying at the Hilton Surfers Paradise might find it hard to leave FIX Bar. Besides being a cool spot for a big night out, with its plush faux vintage furnishings and fabulous cocktail creations.

Their team of mixologists will dream up cocktails you’ll be telling your friends about for years to come!

Pop into celebrity chef Luke Mangan’s Salt Grill for a degustation dinner then head up to The Deck and party on by the pool with the glittering Gold Coast at your feet.

3-Peppers Broadbeach 


The place to party in Peppers Broadbeach is the three-bedroom Sub Penthouse on Level 48 in Tower 1.

It’s sleek and chic and comes with three bedrooms, a media room, three LCD screen television sets and plenty of space to pack in all your friends, who will be as impressed with the floor to ceiling windows, spacious balcony and sweeping views from the Gold Coast Hinterland to the Pacific Ocean. It’s the place to stay if you’re planning on going to the Broadbeach Jazz Festival.

4- Peppers Ruffles Lodge  


Book in for a five-star party in the hinterland. The management is already planning a New Year’s Eve masquerade ball.

Peppers Ruffles Lodge & Spa’s Vue 175 Restaurant is the spot to watch the fireworks while nibbling on canapés and drinking French sparkling wine.

There’ll be live music and entertainment. And best of all, for those staying at the lodge can flop into a comfy bed after the merriment is done.

5- Jupiters Casino Hotel


Get in the party mood at the glitzy Las Vegas show, which pays homage to the showgirl. Think feathers, sequins, high kicks and heels. Jupiters Hotel & Casino is a winner when it comes to fun night out.

From live music and burgers at Tuesday Social to Tea and Tunes, there’s bound to be something on the programme for those looking for a fun night out.
