The Burleigh Bears Leagues Club is centrally located in Miami, just over 1km from the pristine Gold Coast coastline. The Club has long held the reputation on the Coast as the go-to place to spend time over a beer or a meal, discussing all things Rugby League.
The Bears is a Community Club. This means that proceeds earned are distributed to grassroots rugby league initiatives – and of course, the renowned Burleigh Bears Rugby League team. The Bears have enjoyed success on the football field for a number of years in the NRL Queensland Cup.
Last season they left the field as grand final winners! As the feeder club to the Gold Coast Titans, you may be lucky enough to watch a future State of Origin star in action at one of the home games. ‘The Bears’ as it is affectionally called by locals, is one of the larger Clubs on the Coast. It has a sprawling restaurant, and alfresco dining adjacent to the football field. In addition to a well-appointed Sports Bar with one of the few remaining ‘good old fashioned’ TABs, with full facilities and plenty of tap beer available.
The Bears also facilitates two Bingo sessions each week on Monday and Friday mornings with great jackpots to be won.
The Club has just launched their 20/21 Summer menu with plenty of options for everyone. From shared meals, hearty burgers, perfectly cooked steaks, plenty of options for those with dietary requirements, and a selection of home-made desserts. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth or are a fan of peanut butter you can’t go past their Salted Carmel Peanut Butter Ice Cream. Lovingly made in‑house, it is like nothing you’ve ever tasted before.
Back by popular demand is also The Bears famous $15 lunch specials. Choose between a Rump Steak, classic schnitzel or parmy, battered hoki, a pasta bake and even a vegan option of roast vegetable, quinoa and rice salad. The meals are fresh and delicious and are available between 12pm – 2pm, Monday to Saturday.
The bar also offers plenty of variety with an extensive wine list, local and imported beer on tap and a range of boutique cocktails, unique to The Bears. You are sure to find something to sip on that is right up your alley!
