Taste the art of gastronomy at HOTA’s Gallery with the highly anticipated arrival of new dining experiences, Palette restaurant and The Exhibitionist Bar on 14 and 15 May 2021.

Home of The Arts’ Gallery recently opened on to the public on 8 May. However, as Gold Coast’s creative hub, they are not just about art but lifestyle and entertainment too.

HOTA is covering all aspects of culture, through Palette and The Exhibitionist Bar’s carefully curated dining and bar experiences. HOTA is expecting Palette and The Exhibitionist Bar to gather art enthusiasts and lovers of fine dining, curated cocktails, and a unique atmosphere.

Palette Restaurant

Palette's food inspired by exhibitions

Down on HOTA’s ground floor is Palette, Gold Coast’s newest fine dining experience. Palette features a modern Australian menu utilising locally sourced fresh ingredients and a fully curated wine list.

Savour high culinary art with the chef’s special degustation menus, or you can opt for ala carte. Situated in HOTA, the chefs led by Executive Chef Dayan Hartill-Law are blending art and food for their degustation menus.

“Our degustation menus are inspired by the major art exhibitions in the gallery, with the first menu relating to HOTA’s Solid Gold exhibit so that guests can see their favourite pieces of art come to life on the plate,” said Dayan.

While you treat your palette, you should also bask in the stunning venue. Influenced by William Robinson’s painting The Rainforest, the restaurant itself looks like an exhibition.

The Exhibitionist Bar

Located on the 5th level of HOTA, the bar offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the vibrant arts precinct and the sparkling Nerang River through to the hinterland.

HOTA Head of Culinary Arts, David Ashford, said the extravagant rooftop venue will add another dimension to the already bustling food and social scene on the Gold Coast.

Accompanying the view is a beautiful array of tapas-style bar menu with speciality cocktails, extensive wine lists, house-made sodas and local craft beer.

Palette and The Exhibitionist Bar will push Gold Coast’s food and drinking culture’s boundaries through the combination of HOTA’s eclectic precinct and the chefs’ creativity. So, don’t miss out on a feast for your senses, and head down to HOTA’s Palette and The Exhibition Bar.
