The last few months at the Robina Tavern have been a process of transformation from a tired community pub and gaming room, into the dazzling, trendy hot spot it is today.


Re-branded as Robina Pavilion and fit out to the nines with four new themed areas, Robina is set to become the suburban go-to spot on the Gold Coast for live music and events, open area cocktails, gourmet pizza and lakeside lounging.

Robina Tavern reinvented as Robina Pavilion

THE SOUTHERN Gold Coast suburb of Robina is about to welcome its own trendy “pavilion” following an extensive $4 million renovation of a popular waterside pub.


The Robina Tavern will relaunch as the Robina Pavilion at the end of next month, with five new areas including a huge outdoor deck and a “Bali-styled beach club” space with daybeds and children’s lounge.


Robina Pavilion general manager Damien Stephen said the venue would be unrecognisable following the completion of the mammoth revamp undertaken by local Gold Coast, commercial hospitality shopfitting company, Open Projects Group.

“It’s a completely new venue in every area,” he said.

“We’ve got this lower beach house area with day beds, umbrellas, fire pits in winter all directly across the lake-water. It’s just lovely.

“We’ve taken a lot more advantage of the residual land we owned that was never improved upon.

“We have a deck with a retractable roof, and outdoor bar and pizza oven. Our grassy area has returned and there’s lovely murals throughout the hotel.”


Mr Stephen said the idea to upgrade the tavern was first floated five years ago but renovations didn’t begin until February. He said the name “pavilion” had been agreed upon long before the iconic Burleigh Heads restaurant opened.


“(Having the same name) doesn’t faze me in the slightest – people can come to my place as well,” Mr Stephen said. “The first thing we needed to do was change the name of the pub. With the scope of works we came up with, it ceased to become just a hotel or a tavern, it was so much more.


“It’s an entertainment precinct, and I’m a bit of a fan of the Coogee Pavilion in Sydney so we got some design inspiration from them.”


Mr Stephen promises regulars will feel just as welcome at the new-look local and prices for food and drinks will remain the same.


Robina Pavilion, on the corner of Ron Penhaligon Way and Cheltenham Drive will open at the end of this month, November 2019.
