Experience some of the best weekend party nights at the MET nightclub and entertainment center. This club is spread across three levels and has six bars decked with variety of drinks for late night revelers. Some of the top DJs and music artists have performed at this club, making this one of the most crowded and happening party houses in the city.
Brisbane's original and foremost gay and lesbian gathering point, the Wickham is never short of color or wild party-goers. If cross-dressing is one of your indulgences, then the Wickham hotel is where you should present yourself for display. On Saturdays live DJ dance-mix leaves you with no time to slow down. For those not as fleet-footed, enjoy your drink from the bar or sit down at the small café outside and order some nibbles.
A prominent feature in the Brisbane nightlife scene, GPO Hotel is also one of the finest event venues in this part of the city. In the heart of a social district, GPO is among other very popular cafes, fashion boutiques, restaurants and nightclubs. The venue is also located in close proximity to the airport as well as the absolute center of the city. With two floors, the interiors are stylish and unique and is perfect for private events such as conferences, meetings and cocktail parties as well. The venue hosts DJs like Brett J, Baby Gee, Jimmy Vegas and Fef among other musical talents. Do visit the website for more information.
The Rev, formerly known as Heaven Cabaret, is not a venue where you go to fraternise, but more to dance yourself to exhaustion. Bizarrely, as the vibes resonate throughout this renovated church, the crowd numbers tend to fluctuate without any apparent reason. For the dance enthusiast, this can be a truly religious experience with non-stop music playing at two hundred beats per minute. The message preached from the DJ's pulpit is keep moving until the very last beat has been exhausted.
Formerly called the Shamrock Hotel , the Step Inn is a chilled out club that has all genres of music playing away. The club features different entertainment areas and bands such as Melt, Bug and Warrior Queen have performed here.
DJs and live acts are the keepers of The Zoo and they watch the groovers on the dance floor like a lion stalking their prey. The Zoo plays host to many up and coming live bands and is one of the most creditable venues on the alternative/independent music scene. Many international and local acts choose The Zoo as the location for a surprise show or the occasional CD launch. The bars are fully stocked with all the regular ales and spirits at relatively inexpensive prices.
Formerly The Tube, Brisbane's most beloved dance venue might have a new name, but is still responsible for some of the finest dance action around. Technomad Disco-Tech plays host to a wide range of events including "U-Nite" on Thursdays for University students, and Ten DJ on Friday and Saturday. The club's three rooms ensure that there is plenty of room to shake your groove thing.
Upstairs at the Empire Hotel you will find the trendy Wonderbar, alternative dance club with an atmosphere that is deliciously dark without being gloomy. The patrons are alternative, but the music is surprisingly mainstream, ranging from techno to British pop. If you like live music, then head up further to the Moon Bar, where you can sit on comfortable couches in an attic-style room.
Next door to the Empire Hotel, the Press Club is the ultimate venue to relax in five-star style. Massive clusters of sunken leather couches enhance the mellow atmosphere. This is the perfect place to relax with friends, read a riveting novel or simply laze while enjoying a cold drink. Have your favorite beverage delivered to your seat, or indulge in one of their fine selection of cigars. The Press Club has set itself a high benchmark in attempting to offer top quality to its broad range of clientèle, and it succeeds admirably.
Sitting on the third storey of the building that incorporates both the Press Club and Empire Hotel, the Moon Bar further fashions the Valley's tradition of supporting the local music scene. Dimly lit, quaint and quirky, it reeks of independent music spirit. Many local bands cut their teeth in this venue, to extremely supportive audiences. The emphasis is on the music, but the bar prices are reasonable and there are even a couple of international beers for the travellers looking for a taste of home.
Stop by at Manfred's Bar and Bistro at day or night. You can get breakfast, brunch as well as lunch here. With it's great drinks' prices, you can get sloshed for cheap. It's pretty reasonable for a beer or wine; and you can get two cocktails for the price of one. This place is a must visit over the weekends, when DJs keep the place alive till wee hours of the morning. Dance to the tunes of funk, jazz, tribal house and trance all night long.
The venue and the street share the same name, apart from that there isn't much in common. This is the place to party and party hard, there is no dress code at all. A DJ plays most of the requests but beware of the bouncers lurking around, spotting for trouble. Bands play mostly on the weekends and they range from the local names to international gigs.
