Makeover brings new bars, jobs bonanza to The Belvedere
Words by Jodie Powell

Work has begun on a makeover at iconic Woody Point venue The Belvedere Hotel that will create up to 150 new jobs.

Some of the dining areas have closed in anticipation of the renovation, which will bring a café, new sports bar and gaming areas.

Lewis Land Group Queensland regional manager Chris Allison says there are also two new bars being built – one of them a first level lounge and bar area with 180-degree views of the sunset and water.

“We’re delighted to be able to give our locals the best possible pub experience at our venues,” he says.

“Ensuring our venues are given the refresh they need to answer to the changing needs of our local communities is a top priority for us.”

Chris says the pavilion bar and bistro will remain open for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the venue’s refresh.

“Only a couple of sections of the hotel will be closed momentarily,” he says.

“We plan to open the new cafe, sports bar and gaming area and two new bar and lounge areas to the public in August 2023.

“In the meantime, our pavilion bar and bistro remain open, so our locals can continue to enjoy the pub.”

Chris says the new facilities at The Belvedere will create up to 150 new jobs spanning bar, floor and kitchen staff.

He says while the new areas won’t open for another year The Belvedere would start recruiting soon.

The makeover at The Belvedere follows a $3 million renovation at sister venue The Komo that opened in April last year, with new bars and dining options, charcoal rotisserie and wedding and function facilities.
