Where to get your dance on in the Valley

If you want to get down on the d-floor and wave your hands like you just don’t care, the Valley is the place to be. Home to Brisbane’s main nightlife precinct and top dance clubs, Fortitude Valley is the go-to spot to cut some shapes and dance the night away with friends. Here’s where to go:

Open Thursday to Saturday, Prohibition is a large space on Wickham Street with bars and VIP booths that attracts a crowd for live local house DJs, free entry (except Saturdays - $10 after 10pm), free pizza, free hair and makeup, and free photo booths every night. 

With a prime position on Brunswick Street Mall, Retro’s draws an eclectic crowd, thanks to its disco-inspired dancefloor and setlist of top tunes from the ‘80s to ‘00s. Open Thursday to Saturday, it’s a fun place to be with their legendary Flashback Fridays and Old School Saturdays. 

This rooftop lounge, bar and club brings international party vibes on Friday and Saturday nights with an emphasis on K-pop, R’n’B, hip-hop and house tracks spun by DJs with MCs. For the party people with eclectic taste! 

The streets of Latin America have popped up in our favourite Brisbane entertainment precinct. Hey Chica is your one-stop-shop to drink, eat, dance and be merry. Escape to a vibrant fiesta from Tuesday to Sunday with a touch of salsa, bachata and reggaeton. Shake on down to their Salsa Wednesdays for a mid-week pick-me-up.   

Most great nights in the Valley end up at The Beat – ever since 1983! Open Wednesday to Sunday, this Brisbane club icon welcomes revellers to ‘come as you are’ and dance to local DJs and drag shows. 

Brisbane’s biggest club venue is the place to see local, interstate and international DJs take to the decks. The Met is open Fridays and Saturdays. 

Fancy an endless summer garden party where you can kick up your heels under blue skies and starry nights? Then Summa House is your go-to social hub.  Open Wednesday to Sunday, discover a world of lush gardens and beats with a vibe in a never-ending summer.   

Want a venue where you can mix things up as the night goes on? Then head to Wonderland on Friday or Saturday night where you can choose from 4 rooms over 2 massive levels featuring promoted events, live music and club nights.
