    Cocktails Nightclub has been a popular haunt for revelers since it opened in 1989. However, much of the building was ruined in a fire in 2002, and the place was closed for renovations for a year. Although the ground level was never opened again, this nightclub rebounded from the setback with a bang and is ruling the nightclub scene again. With reinvented decor, friendly and accommodating DJs, and a very courteous staff, they are winning their fans back. The ‘Best Dressed’ contest, always a staple, is very popular and you can expect to see some of the most well dressed people here of all clubs in Gold Coast, Australia.

    Often touted as the best nightclub in the Surfers’ Paradise, The Bedroom is known for its extra careful and polite staff and has been credited for its meteoric rise by quite a few reviewers. The place is so called because of the enormous queen sized beds at the back of the place. You are bound to find as many local people here as tourists, and the cheeseburgers are amazing. International celebs such as Justin Bieber, Calvin Harris, and Skrillex have often been spotted partying here too, so the glam quotient is certainly high!
