The Bank Nightclub, Brisbane, Australia – Review


The Bank Nightclub occupies the prime position on the corner of The Brunswick Street Mall and Ann Street. Well known for its RnB and Hip Hop music, my favourite aspect of this club is that it always has fun themed nights and free entry. On Thursdays this club gives way to Urban Economizer Thursdays, were old school flavour is mixed with recent urban music and blasted from the sound systems while talented hip hop dancers occupy the stages. This night offers cheap basics, house wines and beers and surprisingly cheap basic cocktails.

This club offers two different atmospheres in one. The ground level is the official Bank Nightclub with bar, dance stages and DJ booth. Downstairs (underground) is The Vault Lounge. This lounge area provides a relaxed getaway from the club upstairs with its own bar and numerous comfy couches, stools and segregated rooms. The best part about The Vault Lounge is that it actually has a real bank vault! This vault is placed behind bars with fake American money spilling out of the open bank safe door. It made me wonder if they had put fake Australian money in the vault, how many people would have tried to pick up a couple of extra bucks after a few too many drinks.

The Bank Nightclub is accompanied by its own Wood Fired Pizza Shop. And I was delighted by the fact that I didn’t have to serve my late night hunger with an overpriced piece of pizza reminiscent of a piece of cardboard. The Bank Wood Fired Pizza’s offers an amazing 50% off all their fresh wood fired pizzas on Wednesday and Thursdays that can be enjoyed along with your drink from the club in their alfresco seating area.

While munching down on fresh quality pizza and sipping on cheap drinks, The Bank Nightclub and The Vault Lounge are a great place to hang out with friends and relive the urban beats from your school days.
