About
Stingray mixes industrial chic with splashes of pop art to create a Californian oasis on the Gold Coast. Settle in to admire ocean views or be tempted by a cocktail, inspired by one of our 50 in house tequilas. Designer furniture surrounds the industrial style bar, where our talented staff can mix up a drink for any occasion. Add some heat with our Mexican inspired menu for the acclaimed Hot Wings or a Slow Spit Roasted Cuban Pork Belly Taco. Available every day from 12pm, you can relax with a Colonels Finest Chicken Burger, or indulge in a Skinny Cocktail made with a Healthy serve of low calorie agave nectar. Stingray combines work with pleasure, as the perfect function venue and will add some extra spice to your next celebration!

Staff were very accommodating and recommended some of the nicest cocktails. Has a very casual vibe which after a very long day, was nice to relax.

Salsa night was so entertaining but unfortunately grumpy staff ruined the evening. I’m sure with better staff the Lounge will kick on

Don’t pretend to be something you’re not, QT. Your attempts at creating a classy upmarket bar while employing casual couches suitable for cocktails, blaring club music, bright flashing lights and 24/7 sports on the tv are not working. Don’t put a dress code on your website and tell customers they must impress while behaving like a confused teenage hangout. Anyone who has visited QT Sydney or Melbourne, don’t hold your breath. Terrible bar, walk down the beach and grab a beer at any of the bars along there for a classier night. If you marketed your bar as a casual place for a loud night that’s fine but don’t pretend.

We had farewell drinks and nibblies on a Sunday afternoon. I reserved the raised lounge area which was perfect for the occasion. Thank you to the QT team. From the moment I emailed the events team to the very end of the event with Josh and his team in the Stingray Lounge, I was well impressed. The food and cocktails were delicious and even better, happy hour from 4pm till 6pm was a bonus. Everyone in attendance had only great things to say about the funky venue, food and drinks. We will be back. Thank you once again.

Great meet up venue with a funky vibe, friendly efficient staff, a venue warm and inviting. Food is available to dine in or take away - including pizza ($22). We were wowed by the craft beer for $4 each and which got us well primed for a fun evening. Dress is smart casual, lighting is discreet, service is swift and friendly. Lounges are comfy. We were there during stage 2 Covid restrictions so entry was limited to 20 at a time, requiring a short wait since we hadn't booked. The atmosphere is really nice and the QT hotel in Staghorn Avenue (the reinvented GC International) is exceptional, with a funky retro vibe. I love the old Kombie out the front and the old vehicle. Refreshing ambience and an inspiring decor. Must see hidden gem, especially if you are looking for a pre-dinner or post dinner drinks, or a comfy place to settle in for a few quiet ales, wine or cocktails. Sure to impress

Horrible food. Ordered the baby squid and got chewy, tasteless squid instead and paid a lot for it. Definitely will not be going back.

Nice way to stumble on a hidden gem, decor bar and balcony, the most comfortable setting, section on the bar and food were on point, sky the on the made me a French quarter old fashion with a twist that was amazing, but Matt and Josh though, so informative with cocktails, it was a delight to keep picking. Can't wait to go back

After arriving off a late night Sunday flight, we were thrilled to find Stingray still serving meals. Ordered a Chicken burger and a Classic burger washed down with a couple of beers. Food was great, service was awesome.
We followed up again a couple of nights later with mojitos .... perfect!
