Exquisite tapas menu compliments of Guy Grossi

Howl at the Moon's new location at Surfers Paradise is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Surfers touristy traffic zone. It's located at the riverside end of Cavill Avenue which makes it perfect for a relaxing and stylish dining experience right on the picturesque Nerang River.

The seduction of the double baby grand pianos which dominate the spacious and elegant setting is alluring. Howl at the Moon is a piano lounge that not only offers live entertainment and great food, it has a selection of nooks and crannies to suit your mood. You can tuck yourself away on the comfy couch in front of the fireplace; sit yourself on a bar stool outside overlooking the Nerang River; dine alfresco; position yourself close to the bar; hit the dance floor in front of the baby grands; howl at the moon inside your own private karaoke room; round up your mates in the sports room surrounded by 20 screens, and take yourself out to the smoking area when the urge arises.

Every great business has a trump card. Howl at the Moon has two. The first is the stylish entertainment of double baby grand pianos and the other is the exquisite tapas menu designed by celebrity chef, Guy Grossi. It was difficult to pick a favourite dish as everything served was so delicious that I found myself wanting to taste more and more of the wide selection on offer.

The aroma coming from the steaming hot smokey plum BBQ pork ribs was irresistible. The meat fell off the bone and dissolved across my tongue requiring minimal chewing. The sensational flavour was divine and worthy of a second helping.

The chilli and herb BBQ stuffed calamari begs to be nibbled slowly to appreciate the mix of delicate and spicy flavours encased inside the tender calamari.

The prosciutto, egg, chicken, salad, Howl Club Sandwich is a culinary work of art that is not only visually appealing but a taste sensation that will leave you guessing about the scrumptious mix of ingredients that went into perfecting this morsel served on a skewer.

The onion rings with Peri Peri sour cream were encrusted with the most delicate crispy batter that I've ever tasted. It was a dining experience that I'll not forget and will have me going back for more until I've tried everything on the menu.

The atmosphere is very stylish and elegant. I particularly like that you can change your mood by simply moving from one area to another. When you need a break from the live entertainment, you can enjoy a drink outside in the fresh air and admire the picturesque Nerang River. The sports bar is perfect for a get together for the die-hard sports fans who can't drag themselves away from a screen but still want a night out to enjoy good food and company.

Howl at the Moon Karaoke

For those who want to howl at the moon, there are two private karaoke rooms available for hire. Get a group of howling friends together and make a night of it. The karaoke rooms have a minimum two hour hire at a cost of $50 per hour and a minimum spend of $100 for food and beverages. It's a great idea for a small private party. The rooms are cosy and tucked away from public viewing for those who aren't too keen to croon in front of strangers.
