If you are looking for a quality night out away from the excesses of Surfers Paradise, then East in Broadbeach may be the answer. It’s certainly not the cheapest nightclub on the Gold Coast, but that’s not what you’re looking for, is it? Good: prepare for a night of excellence, instead.
Immediately upon entering, you will know you made the right choice. East is beautifully designed and decorated: overhead chandeliers, comfortable booths, statues, understated lighting – it’s a world away from the Vegas-style clubs in Surfers.
East has three bars. The first is the Main Room’s Silk Road Bar: it’s the largest bar here, with 3 private booths and plenty of space – at least until the night picks up.
The Monk Bar is smaller with a more intimate feel, with just one private booth. Lastly, the Dynasty Lounge completes the set and can be booked for private and corporate functions and celebrations.
East takes it to another level with it’s entertainment: while many clubs settle for a few podium dancers, here you’ll get pyrotechnics, acrobats, amazing costumes and more. The sound system and lighting are both top rate too. While the music is generally of a commercial nature, it avoids the cheese that Gold Coast nightclubs have a reputation for.
While there is a smart casual dress code, creativity is encouraged. Contact the venue directly to find out about the VIP Guest List and membership. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. East Nightclub is located at Level 1, 88 Surf Parade in Broadbeach. Telephone 07 5538 8868.
