Tickets to one of the many Gold Coast 2023 shows

The Gold Coast is set to play host to some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry in 2023, and what better way to spoil your loved one than to get them tickets to their favourite artist, comedian or performer?

Etsu Izakaya

Etsu Izakaya has, for many years, been one of our favourite places to dine on the Gold Coast. The venue is an experience in and of itself, and at times we’ve been here we’ve run into all manner of people - even once being seated next to Jason Momoa and Amber Heard while they filmed Aquaman! It’s the place to be, and a gift card to this fabulous Japanese fusion establishment is sure to delight. Check it out here.
