Raise A Glass To This Renovation
The Brighton Hotel is starting 2024 with a major glow-up.

The iconic suburban pub is currently under renovation, with big plans for the year ahead.

Australian Venue Co brand marketing manager, Pippa Finks, spoke to the Sandgate Guide about the exciting changes.

“It’s going to be light and bright, with a very coastal and modern look,” Pippa said.

“One of the biggest changes is that we’re adding a huge outdoor area at the front.

“There will be a lovely big beer garden space right across the front area, with two separate entrances leading into the new sports bar and new bistro areas.

“We’re also installing a kid’s playground, which will be nice and shaded.”

Pippa added the old Charlie’s Bistro was also being rebranded.

“We’ve got a new menu in the works, keeping some of the locals’ favourite dishes, and introducing a bunch of new items as well – expect lots of classic Queensland pub food, with fresh local seafood,” she said.

“We are very mindful of the cost of living right now, and we are going to be offering some pretty amazing weekly specials.

“People want value for money and we’re conscious of that, particularly in our suburban, family-friendly venues.

“We’re also going to be offering a pretty comprehensive entertainment program as well. There will be lots of live music, trivia, bingo – you name it.”

The hotel’s popular Tradie Club will continue to operate, with great specials and deals on Fridays for local tradies, including a free weekly barbecue.

The new gaming room is already up and running, and the Brighton Hotel’s accommodation will also be getting a makeover.

“We’re so excited to be part of the area, particularly with the upgrades to the Brighton foreshore, it’s so lovely,” Pippa said.

“We’re very keen to bring the Brighton Hotel up to speed with other local venues.”

The renovations at the Brighton Terrace venue should be complete by late April.
