With its location on the glorious Nerang River, peckvonhartel drew on water-based activities to guide their design of the interior for Helm Bar and Bistro at Surfers: the bar side, with its emphasis on sports, is designed around sailing; whilst the bistro side, with its emphasis on food, draws on elements from fishing. The venue’s protected north-north-west aspect is draped in natural sunlight which provides a vantage point for watching the beautiful Gold Coast sunsets over the river.

The mixture of the slick and contemporary, with the quirky and unusual, creates a space that is inclusive and versatile that is perhaps Helm Bar and Bistro at Surfers’ biggest asset. The relaxed and non-exclusive feel of the venue has attracted the wide range of people, generating a thriving trade from lunchtime and dinnertime until late into the night.

peckvonhartel is looking forward to celebrating the early successes of Helm Bar and Bistro at Surfers and be in attendance for the official opening.
