The Deen is one of the biggest nightclubs in Perth and hosts a number of popular events each week. Based in the centre of Northbridge, this place is well known locally and with backpackers travelling through Perth.
A famous weekly event falls every Thursday evening here, when Perth sees a huge Latin American party night, with South American music, dancing, salsa lessons and various drinks promotions.
Other nights to look out for are the weekly student night which falls on a Friday, the Saturday night party and the Manic Monday's evening which offer a range of deals. Monday nights also offer a special industry discount area for all hospitality workers based in and around Perth. Just take a pay slip and proof of I.D and you can enjoy discounted drinks and networking with colleagues and other workers in a special VIP setting.
You'll need a passport, a WA proof of age card, or a valid Australian driving licence to gain entry to this place, and they're very strict on I.D. Be warned and make sure you take some out with you as they won't make any exceptions. This is only to ensure patrons' safety as they photograph the I.D of all people entering the nightclub.
It's open late here and is a fun place to go for a night out with a group of friends. There's plenty of dancing, occasional free BBQs and pool competitions, about five different 'zones' and a fantastic 'party' atmosphere.
