The Wharf Tavern Fridays is great place to relax and lose yourself.
Located in Mooloolaba, approximately fifty metres from Underwater World stands The Wharf Tavern Fridays. The place itself is effectively separated in to two establishments, The Wharf tavern and Fridays the nightclub.
Downstairs in the Tavern there is a large smoking area which is heated in the evenings. It is comfortable even on busy nights, though drinks usually are not allowed in the area for safety and security reasons. Also downstairs there are two bars occupied by efficient bar staff so getting a drink quick is not a problem.
The area also boasts a pool table and a small arcade area, so challenge your friends to a game if you feel confident enough. Furthermore there is a large dance floor and a small stage where local talented musicians play.
The musician's music is usually a mix of their own music and known hits from the past, it always gets the party goers up and dancing. If you want a relaxing drink then this would be your area as there are many seats and tables for you and your friends to anchor yourselves whilst taking in the atmosphere.
If relaxing is not your idea but gambling is then there is a large pokies area for the gamblers out there. If smoking, gambling, listening to live music, playing pool and arcade games or just having a quiet drink does not appeal to you then head upstairs to Fridays Club.
Once in the nightclub area you will be sure to lose yourself in the fun-natured atmosphere. If you like variation when clubbing then this is your club. The club offers a swanky bar/lounge area, busy and lively but quiet enough to comfortably hear the person you are speaking to.
The dance floor is medium-sized with staged dance areas located on each side of the dance floor; this is also a good area to stand to look out for your friends that you have lost. On the main stage a host will appear on occasions to encourage people to take part in dance battles and other pursuits for money. The upstairs area also has a louder seating area so you can relax after that dance you just had.
The club is often filled with international students, travellers and Australians so finding some interesting people can be great fun. The nightclub is open on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Tuesdays and Thursdays are cheaper nights for those money savers. The tavern is open every day, all day and serves some great food during the day. Meet great people, make friends for life and create memories at Wharf Tavern Fridays.
