There's used to be a great bar on the beach called SALT, that ended up closing. It was a great spot with lots of different food price ranges and some nice spots to eat - in the main restaurant or on a high stool in the bar area.
Now Coast has opened up where Salt used to be. I visited Coast as part of their launch event, the place was absolutely packed with faces delighted to see the new space being utilised. Its a great location and certainly the use of the space has been kept quite sleek to enable a large amount of patrons at one time. The food at the launch was delicious with a large seafood grazing table and oysters on demand.
The venue has separate areas and bars to cater for different options of eating and drinking. There is an uncovered section which I do wonder about for winter, but I'll have to see.
I have to say the food being brought around was impeccable and so were the drinks. I think I will definitely be going back on the weekends with some girlfriends to soak up the sun on Port Beach and indulge in a cocktail or two. The menu has a variety of options to suit all taste buds.
This is certainly a venue to check out if you are passing Port Beach or looking for some beach venues.
