HELP!!!!Clubbing Brisbane / Gold Coast

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies I need some advice about clubbing in brizzy and the Gold Coast.

So my sister and I are heading down to see p!nk next July and have to take a whole weekend and just party :) we both have young children and never get out. We're from a small town that only has 3 night clubs in the same street.

I really need some advice on hotel's to stay at that are close to the night scene, places to avoid, staying safe and the best way to get home from clubbing.

This may sound really silly but in our town when you go out you know nearly everyone, I'm just a little overwhelmed and just want to find the best way to have fun and make it home safe.

I live on the Gold Coast, it depends what you're after.. Surfers Paradise is where I always go but only because I know heaps of people there.. If you go before 11 you get into most places free.. We really only go to Cocktails and Dreams, Shuffle and Club Liv, but all the clubs are in the same spot! Or theres Broadbeach, Platinum is a really good club, its $20 to get in, but if you go on the site and get on the guest list its free before 10:30..Anywhere in Surfers is good to stay, you can walk home or catch a cheap cab. Surfers has mainly younger people than in Broadbeach, about 18-20 year olds, and is a bit dirtier, but you can still have a good night!

Brisbane, Ive never been but have heard it is a lot better then Gold Coast clubbing. I believe the main spot for the clubs are in 'the valley', I know there is 'family' and 'the met' but I can't remember any others.

I like going out on cavil at the goldy .. which Is where I live. There are lots of close by accommodation that is within walking distance or only a quick cab ride if u feel safer. There is always cops out and about and a 'chill out station' where ppl can be taken if they have had too much to drink or, if like me had their drink spiked.

Wherever u do go I suggest sticking to the big, 'mainstream' clubs such as sin city, vanity, shooters, blush. I was taken by friends into one of the smaller ones called elsewhere ... I later found out it was a 'drug club' where everyone is on something. I had my drink spiked with a huge dose of ecstasy and was llucky I acted quickly when it hit and left and found a cop ... ended up in the chill out zone where I waited for my mum

I have always had fun and been safe in the major clubs so stick to them and ull be fine ... same thing goes for brissy. Also keep drinks on u at all times ... if u put it down leave it lol

Friends and I stayed in a 5 star resort called trilogy I think .. really close and amazing facilitie!!

Hope I didn't scare u with that but just needed to make the point!

Yeah those are the main clubs I know ... I used to live in brissy but never had as much fun going out there. Agree with everything else uve said!

Thanks ladies. I think I might stay in surfers so I can just walk back to my hotel if I have too much to drink.

Has anyone stayed at the casino (Brisbane )?? I was thinking that would be another good option.

I've heard brizzy clubs are full of drugs, I must remember to not leave my drink unattended.

Haha I'm so excited :)

I've never had any problems with drugs in Brissy but I haven't been out much lately (and I'm out to get drunk so they aren't lying around long enough to spike lol). Depends what sort of music you like.

The valley is a bit more techno/dance music - the Met, Family, Hot Gossip, Electric playground are all ok. Magic City if you prefer RnB.

City - I nearly always go to The Exchange Hotel - they have up & downstairs and a rooftop bar. Downstairs is a bit of a mix top 40/rnb/odd dancy remix. Upstairs is a bit more remixes that you can dance a bit more too. It's about 700m from the casino, the casino also has a few different rooms with DJ's playing.

Check out Aurora towers if you aren't sure which way you want to go it's kind of in the middle of both - you could walk to most places in the city but valley would be a cab ride (about 1.5km) http://www.oakshotelsresorts.com/oaks-aurora/

Also, it's a good hour or so drive from the Entertainment Centre back to the Gold Coast after seeing P!nk.

I'm going on the 19th July. Soooo excited!

Hope that helps
