Opening in late November, El Camino Cantina South Bank will replace the Munich Brauhaus, which closed following Covid-19 restrictions and the tourism drought. El Camino offers a unique entertainment experience to the popular South Bank precinct.
In close proximity to the iconic Streets Beach, the 510-seat diner has three distinct zones: a colourful, umbrellaed outdoor dining area for 140 guests, a ground floor diner that caters to 120 guests, and a bar-centric 250-seat upper floor that accommodate extended dining and focuses on live entertainment, including a rotation of top DJs every weekend.
El Camino Southbank will have a DJ line-up, which is unique to the new location. Along with the club vibe, El Camino will also offer their well-known margaritas, décor and Tex-Mex inspired menu.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said El Camino Cantina was a growth brand for the business and has come out of the Covid-19 pandemic even stronger, which underscored the decision to bring it to South Bank. “The El Camino customer demographic is a younger, more carefree age group and the price point is pleasantly affordable, which are important contributors to a restaurant’s success in the current dining landscape and at this time of economic uncertainty and falling discretionary spend.”
“We opened El Camino Cantina at Robina in July – a time when many restaurants had not reopened after the initial Covid19 shutdown – and the venue has proved to be big hit, which underscores our confidence in El Camino Cantina as a brand to further invest in and expand,” Mr Pash said.
El Camino Cantina South Bank will employ around 50 full-time and casual staff and bring a number of stood-down team members back to work.
