The Urban List – Look Inside Miss Moneypenny’s Dreamy New Broadbeach Restaurant
If we were to name the most hotly anticipated opening of the spring, this would be it.
It seems like an eternity since we teased you with news that Miss Moneypenny’s, of Noosa fame, was bringing its world famous cocktail offering and Mediterranean vibes to the Gold Coast. Well, the wait is finally over.
Quietly opening its doors earlier this week, we took our first look inside and let’s just say, we’re madly in love.
Away from the bustling centre of Broadbeach—with little walk-by patronage and minimal traffic—Miss Moneypenny’s is located on Surf Parade under the recently opened five-star Avani Apartments. While this removed locale may have some scratching their heads, we think it’s actually a huge strength.
Escaping to this quieter pocket of the neighbourhood brings with it an instant sense of calm and exclusivity. You’ll feel relaxed the moment you settle into the plush couch seating and take a sip of your first Peppered Peach Ice Tea cocktail.
Designed by one of the world’s most respected hospitality designers, this is Kelly Designs first big splash on the Gold Coast, and we can confidently say there’s nothing in town quite like it.
Miss Moneypenny’s coastal colour palette is dreamy and the styling is elegantly timeless. From the terracotta breeze wall entry way and stunning terracotta lined bar (we sense a new trend will follow), to the walnut tables, plush heathered grey and emerald blue couch seating—even the meticulously designed bathrooms are screaming for an Insta shoot sesh. Miss Moneypenny’s is chic, grown up and very classy.
Grab a casual resort-style seat on the alfresco patio (with plans for an arbour shade come summer) or a table in the main dining room that lends itself perfectly to groups. Or, nab an intimate posi in the rear lounge nook, overlooking the full length of the 200-seat restaurant, while the modern fireplace crackles through the last of the cooler nights.
