Surfers Paradise Nightclubs

Surfers Paradise has the most vibrant nightlife location anywhere on the Gold Coast. The main streets are Cavill Ave ( where the Mooring on Cavill is located at the quiet end of town), with its beachfront pedestrian mall and Orchid Avenue where the numerous bars and nightclubs are located. Surfers Paradise offer a lot of nightclubs to cater for most people’s taste.

A lot of the nightclubs are similar such as Melba’s, The Bedroom, Cocktails and Dreams. They offer most of the commercial pop/R&B tracks. They are always busy and packed with locals and tourist .
Melba’s is a great place and is very popular but expect a long wait to get in during peak time.During the day Melbas serves lunch and as the evening progresses it becomes a bar and later on at night it turns into a nightclub that is located upstairs.
Shooter’s is a saloon style pub with a very good dance floor and lots of fun.The music they play is the same as in most other bars and nightclubs> here you can enjoy all the commercial hits but many of these tracks are often repeated.

We also recommend the nightclub tours such as new year’s nightclub tour which is a real blast and also goes every night. The good thing about many of these places is that they are always packed with people. All the hotels in town can provide you with vouchers that give you free admittance and most of the times a couple of free drinks as well.

Dress Code: Most of the pubs and clubs in Surfers have the usual dress code. Neat shirt, jeans and either nice casual shoes or trendy lady killers. Women can wear whatever and whenever. as dress code for women is a lot less strict than in Melbourne or Sydney or in Hong Kong or Singapore or Beijing
