Brisbane has a lot to offer in terms of nightlife, and the city is full of amazing clubs. Here are the best ones to check out!
While Brisbane’s old-school club scene has largely gone the way of the dodo, there are still places where you can dance and drink to your heart’s content. From retro discos to haunted goth bars, here are the best clubs in Brisbane for you to dance the night away.
Fiume Rooftop Bar
The best of Brisbane is celebrated at Fiume Rooftop Bar, where everything – from vibrant share plates to modern Australian cuisine – reflects the laidback Queensland lifestyle. Take a seat on the balcony and drink in the scenery with crafted cocktails or refreshing spritzes to quench your thirst.
Tucked away on top of Crystalbrook Vincent, Fiume – named after the Italian word for river – is a glamorous urban oasis. The outdoor bar and terrace have the allure of an LA resort rooftop, complete with a spectacular infinity pool and day beds.
With a spot beneath Story Bridge and a killer cocktail menu to boot, it’s a must-try for anyone who enjoys a glitzy night out in the city. Not only that, but Fiume offers guests a truly enviable Sunday brunch overlooking the Brisbane River, too.
The Triffid is a new 800 capacity live music venue in Brisbane’s inner suburb of Newstead. Located in a WW2 era ’Nissen Hut’ type warehouse and featuring a large outdoor beer garden, Triffid is a modern and visually spectacular space showcasing the best of national, local and international artists.
Having just opened its doors in November 2014, The Triffid is the brainchild of former Powderfinger bassist John Collins who wanted to give something back to his hometown of Brisbane. Having toured the globe and experiencing first-hand what makes a good club, Collins was keen to bring an amazing live music experience to his home city. This is the place where you will find everything from food to leadership coaching events.
The Triffid is a great place to enjoy a night out with friends and loved ones. Its quirky industrial feel, combined with state-of-the-art sound techniques and a beautiful beer garden make it the ideal spot to relax and hang out.
Located on Brunswick Street, this basement nightclub is home to some of the best DJs in Brisbane. They play a range of genres including EDM, hip hop and trap music.
Known as Family before its rebranding, this club has been a go-to destination for locals and tourists alike. It has a slick rooftop bar and smoking area for more chilled al fresco feels, and they have seasonal events and performances to get the party going.
OMP has partnered with research firm Supply Chain Insights to launch the Spark Initiative, which explores a data-driven “outside-in” approach to supply chain planning. The initiative is supported by an advisory board of business leaders, industry professionals and academics. It aims to identify and validate new ways of optimizing supply chains to overcome challenges such as labor shortages, price volatility and inflation.
A fun-filled bar/nightclub that attracts a younger crowd, Kickon is arguably Brisbane’s best kept secret. The edgy, not-so-PC (politically correct) venue boasts bucket hats, neon signs and an impressive dance floor.
Located in Fortitude Valley, the club is a must-visit if you’re looking to shake off the work week with a few drinks and a good time. The venue has an industrial flair thanks to its exposed brick walls and low ceiling, but expensive-looking sofas and graffiti art add a dash of vibrancy to the interior.
The aforementioned nightclub also has a great cocktail list and offers breathtaking views of the city. The nightclub has day beds, a tiki-inspired rooftop, a beer garden and three bars. The venue also offers live entertainment and seasonal events.
Sky and Lotus
If you want to party like a VIP, Sky and Lotus is the place to go. It is Brisbane’s most glamorous sky bar and offers an incredible view of the city.
Cloudland, the superclub in Fortitude Valley has four levels of cutting-edge design with a retractable glass roof and waterfall amidst thousands of plants. It is known as an urban oasis in Brisbane and boasts an impressive range of bars and cozy booths.
The club also doesn’t skimp on DJs. They regularly bring in international talents to disk jockey their many dance floors. Their music focus is primarily on electronic dance.
