Modern Facelift  for Mon Komo
Waterfront hotel Mon Komo is having a $3 million makeover, with the new look set to be revealed in February 2021.

The popular bayside venue has been purchased by Belvedere Hotel owners Lewis Land Group.

Lewis Land Group Queensland Regional Leisure Manager Chris Allison said Mon Komo would keep its name and the renovation project, titled Seabrae, will be mostly cosmetic to modernise the existing structure.

“We are returning to a traditional public bar-style operation,” Chris said. “The main dining area is receiving a really nice, modern facelift with the focus being on food and beverage service. There will be lots of booth seating and we will be redoing the terrace area as well to make it more comfortable with a gazebo style structure out the front that will protect from the elements.”

Chris said the terrace would have garden spaces for events of up to 30 people, with the big outdoor space being able to be split into sections, much like the Belvedere. The current gardens were being lowered so patrons could enjoy the waterfront view while enjoying their meal and drinks.

“We are focusing on casual celebrations,” he said. “We will be doing a lot of nice cocktails and are putting in a food concept, which is a charcoal rotisserie. It will be great. We will be able to do the best chicken and chips you’ve ever had, we'll have a modern take on kebabs, and some zesty, summery seaside flavours to enjoy.

“Like the Belvedere, we want to become a destination venue for the Peninsula. We expect a synergy between the two venues, but they’re not going to be exactly the same. We want Mon Komo to be the sort of place where a broader cross-section of people can come.”

Chris said the gaming room was also getting a revamp to include socially distanced games machines to create a more professional and comfortable gaming experience.

“Mon Komo will be a place people know they can enjoy good food and drinks and have a flutter in the gaming room, or go to the traditional public bar and have a nice cold beer as well," he said.

“We are not big nightclub and entertainment operators, so the night club component will not be returning.”
