The countdown has officially started as the final preparations are being made prior to the long-awaited opening of the exciting new addition to Abell Point Marina’s food and beverage scene, The Garden Bar Bistro.
We have taken the old Garden Bar (a popular part of the old Hemingway’s Restaurant), and taken it to a new level. With a lick of new paint, a contemporary styling re-vamp, and a fresh new menu, we are now completing the finishing touches before The Garden Bar Bistro’s officially opening on Wednesday 8th May at 12pm.
With an aim to cater to our marina guests, visitors to our incredible region, as well as importantly our valued locals, The Garden Bar Bistro has been designed with a view to capturing the relaxed and vibrant Whitsundays lifestyle. We invite you to sit back and relax with a drink in hand, soak up the incredible views whilst listening to live music, and enjoy the vibrant setting with family and friends.
The space has been refitted with comfortable couches and low seating areas, as well as a mixture of high-top bar tables with easy views over the marina’s activities plus those spectacular sunsets. The statement central tree continues to provide shade during the day, and the display of twinkling fairy lights at night, along with plenty of newly planted garden beds and tropical palms to add to the ‘oasis’ atmosphere.
The menu itself has undergone a fresh new look, providing simple (yet superb) options ranging from sharing plates, light and easy snacks to larger main meals. Including gourmet burgers, locally caught seafood, Cuban-inspired flavours and not forgetting, wonderfully – Kid’s eat on the cheap! Offering an all-day menu of quality food at great value, The Garden Bar Bistro aims to tick a box for everyone for a fuss-free, fresh and flavoursome dining experience.
With daily sunset sessions, live music at the weekend, and a relaxing and inviting atmosphere, The Garden Bar Bistro will be the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon beer whilst watching the boats go by, a sunset cocktail, or an evening spent with friends over a light meal. Put the date in your diaries and be sure to come down and experience what The Garden Bar Bistro can offer! We can’t wait to welcome you!
