Brisbane comes to life at night with a vibrant club scene. Fortitude Valley is the city’s official party precinct but both the CBD and West End are booming with local bars.
A classy sign in capital letters marks the entrance to Proey on Wickham Street. From here, a grand stairway leads down into a themed blend of prohibition era and modern technology. Here are a few venues besides The Brisbane Club that offer superior entertainment for the evenings.
Located in the heart of Fortitude Valley, Cloudland is more than a club. It is a garden of delights brimming with fantasy and magic – where old-world charm and modern interiors come together. Discover a world of hidden treasures – a delightful Italian restaurant, eclectic collection of private booths, captivating function rooms, bewitching wedding venues, and more. It’s where you can eat and drink premium cocktails and food served lunch and dinner, meet new friends, reconnect with an old one, find your love, celebrate.
- The Met
The Met features an amazing collection of art from all around the world, spanning over 5,000 years. From ancient Egyptian tools to medieval armor, the museum is home to a myriad of wondrous treasures.
One of the most famous paintings is Henri Matisse’s The Dance Class, which features a group of young ballerinas and their mothers. The painting is so lifelike that it looks like a photograph. You’ll also see pieces by Picasso and Warhol. The museum is a popular spot for filming, having been featured in movies such as When Harry Met Sally and Gossip Girl.
Bring a date or a special someone to enjoy live music, drinks and 5,000 years of art every Friday and Saturday night. You can also visit the roof to take in views of Central Park and the city.
The swanky nightclub, Players, is famous for its topless barmaids and nude lap dances. This club is a popular choice for couples and friends who want to get down to booming music and a VIP vibe. The classy sign with capital letters is hard to miss on Wickham Street and once you’ve (carefully) walked down the grand stairway lit up with spheres of LED lights, you’ll find yourself in a themed mix of prohibition-era chic and modern technology.
Family nightclub is another iconic Brisbane nightclub that’s perfect for those who want to dance until dawn. This venue features five bars, four levels, and non-stop electronic music. They’re renowned for hosting some of the best local and guest DJs in town. You’ll also find a range of premium cocktails to quench your thirst.
- The Beat Megaclub
While Brisbane may lack dedicated gay cruise clubs, it makes up for it with plenty of fun bars and nightclubs. One of the best is The Beat Megaclub, a multi-leveled club that thumps under the credo ‘Party 365’ and welcomes patrons of all ages into a non-discriminatory environment.
It’s also a great place to watch the mesmerizing drag shows or compete in the karaoke rooms with friends and fellow clubbers. The staff are super friendly and the music selection is always spot on.
Plus, the drinks are cheap and there’s a dance floor for every music genre. The only downside is the security can be a bit uptight at times. It’s a great club for any type of dancer though. Just be careful on the Retro floor as it can get a little rough.
- The Wickham
The Wickham features low pitched hipped rooflines with standing seam metal roofing, stone clad columns, and stucco walls. These features make this narrow floor plan a beauty on the outside, so your friends and neighbors will already be impressed before they even step inside!
There’s plenty to do in this quaint little town (or large village, as some people like to call it). A pretty market square sits at the heart of this bustling community. From here, take a stroll alongside the River Meon or head further north on the Meon Valley Trail.
There’s also a host of independent shops and restaurants to browse and dine in. If you’re looking for something fun to do, check out The Wickham’s events calendar. It has everything from family friendly activities to adult-only fun.
