The Good Times Pub Group has reinvented an iconic Gold Coast pub in a new location within Southport’s Queen Street Village, a new centrally located retail precinct.

The original Queen’s Arm Hotel was opened by Frederick Fass in 1878 on the corner of Davenport and Nerang Streets. The new iteration of the Queen’s Arms Hotel, also known as The QA Southport, has a contemporary design, with cosy industrial elements like exposed brick.

Response to the venue has been positive, according to Damien Stephen, Good Times Pub Group general manager.

“We’re overwhelmed with the great response by locals who have been calling out for a venue like this to be brought to life in Southport. We are really proud of The QA,” he said.

The QA Southport features a relaxed alfresco dining area and a large brasserie serving a modern Australian menu. Headed by Rob Pickett, the kitchen is serving up dishes such as tavern style pizzas, barbeque ribs, and beer battered coral trout.

The 360-degree sports bar features a large TV screen, which the group believe to be the largest in Southport. Additionally, the gaming room includes state-of-the-art equipment with TAB facilities.

Stephen said that there are plans to continue to expand the offerings at The QA Southport.

“We have some exciting additions coming in the future, including Vic’s Lane, which will be an outdoor cocktail and beer garden, major event activations within the precinct, and the expansion of our gaming facilities.”
