The Darling hotel in Queensland, Australia is a meeting place for all those who love luxury and cosiness. Besides the spa, several bars and the casino, you can now also dine extensively in the rooftop restaurant. Nineteen At The Star was the latest addition to the casino's $850 million redevelopment plan. Miriam Fanning of Mim Design, Melbourne, renovated the space.
Mim Design designed the luxurious rooftop restaurant of The Darling hotel based on the elements of the Gold Coast.
The 150-seater restaurant is located next to an infinity pool overlooking the Gold Coast skyline. The bar in its turn can accommodate 500 guests to entertain. The designer has based each room on the elements of the Gold Coast such as the sunsets, the strong horizon lines and also the colour palettes in the restaurant reflect the beautiful surroundings.
The lifts and bar are covered with soft gilded brass that reflects the night lighting of the city. The curved benches and chairs are custom-made and upholstered with ocean blue and cyan velvet. In the dining room, the brass details, high windows, curved stairs and the striking green marble panel create a dramatic effect. The same marble was also used in the bathroom.

In addition to the luxurious dining room and bar, the restaurant also has its own custom-made wine room with glass frame and storage space for up to 3500 bottles. The private bar also has a cognac wall with a black marble bar and red floor covering. The floating chandeliers create a lush atmosphere in the room. Mim Design designed Nineteen At The Star with nature in mind, but at the same time chose materials that fit perfectly into the bright Gold Coast Casino.
