Girls just wanna have fun.
Girls just wanna have fun.
Has it been a while since you and the girl gang hit up the town and had a night you still can’t recall? Well, we recommend you do something about this pronto and do we have an event which is guaranteed to get you going!
Long gone are the days when ladies’ nights were hosted in dark and questionable nightclubs; this is the dawn of a new era for female (and male) entertainment on the Gold Coast as The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub has announced a fifth weekly, fully locally produced, and choreographed show set to take the Gold Coast by storm. RIPPED is irrevocably about to be unveiled, and we know you’re going to love it!
Step aside the movies and productions featuring an all-male cast; there is a new leader in the entertainment space featuring eight extremely handsome, very fit and chiseled men. This is a 90-minute ode to the male physique as a slick, sassy, and sexy production that will no doubt entertain, tease and delight!
Gather your squad, hen’s parties, birthday parties, divorce celebrations — whatever reason it may be for an extraordinary night or day out — RIPPED is the fun splashed choice you will not regret.
Show producer and The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub co-owner Sue Porrett excitedly tells us, “we are so proud to unveil our fifth weekly production at The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub. SUAVÉ and LA TEAZE have been so well received. However, our locals asked for even more shows. We delivered not one but two shows for everyone to enjoy in an all-inclusive safe environment with FLAMBOYANCE and SLAY, but the ladies — and of course some men — were asking for a show featuring just men, a tasteful twist on an all-male review. That was the inspiration for our new 90-minute production aptly titled RIPPED. I mean, seriously — have you seen these men?!”
Suffice to say; you’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t!
RIPPED promises to deliver high energy, acrobatics, dance and — for a lucky few — audience interaction at The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub. Since 2019, the Art Deco-inspired entertainment destination has been luring flocks of frivolous locals and tourists to the Broadbeach precinct to experience a world-class cabaret and Vegas-style nightlife with live performances galore.
This alluring production will feature two scintillating times a week until the new year. So, either book your partner in for childcare duties on a Thursday night or block out your Saturday afternoon for their matinee show.
Both weekly showings offer you great incentives depending on the day you choose. Tight Bum Thursdays feature 2 for 1 tickets, and Saturday groups include free welcome glasses of Champagne for hen parties or groups of eight or more, and complimentary cocktails and entry for a birthday girl, or guy, with eight or more guests — what a way to celebrate!
RIPPED is now showing at The Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub, but due to overwhelming popularity, Thursday’s show has been sold out for the first three weeks. Don’t worry, though. You will still find availability currently for Saturdays and their Thursday evening performance from the middle of August 2021. Take this as an omen ladies, don’t delay and get yourself booked in for a piece of this not-to-be-missed man action.

We all like the finer things in life. Opting for premium, over the everyday and spoiling ourselves when we have the chance is just part of being human. One new venue opening on the Gold Coast this week slots into this train of thought seamlessly. The two go hand in hand. A divine high-end drink offering, stylish settings and enticing contemporary tapas menu await you at Broadbeach’s hottest new venue, The Vault.
The focus of this new bar is to bring a premium high-end spirits experience to the central Gold Coast. By way of some of the finest whiskies, rums and cognacs you are likely to ever find within Australia. No expense has been spared, with products sourced from around the globe including Japan, the Scottish Highlands and the Caribbean and a scintillating food menu that draws inspiration from various much-liked cuisines. To say this bar will deliver an international experience is to put it lightly.
The owners behind The Vault are well-travelled hospitality veterans with experience of owning venues in the USA, London and Dubai. So after discovering the Gold Coast, naturally, they fell hard for our little slice of heaven here on the Coast. They aim to bring a premium drinks experience with great share style dishes to the bustling Broadbeach social scene; giving their guests not only incredible drinks in their glass but only the best eats on their plate also.
The venue’s mood mixes dark and sophisticated with a spattering of jazz-era art deco feels. The U-shaped bar is central to the space and means you can watch the masterful bartenders mix up your next drink or catch the eye of the intriguing person you’ve noticed across the bar. All up, the venue has a capacity for 150 people (when restrictions relax) and will make use of an alfresco area to the front, which will allow guests to soak up the renowned ambience of the suburb.
For the spirit enthusiasts out there – and in particular whisky lovers – the venue’s top-shelf offerings include 21-year-old Hibiki and 18-year-old Yamazaki, both extremely hard to come by Japanese whiskies that come with a price tag to match. However, if whisky isn’t your thing, then luxury rum Zacapa XO might be more in line, as well as superior choices of vodkas, gins and tequilas.
Once you feel hungry, the internationally-inspired tapas-style menu with such highlights as Butter Chicken Gnocchi and Scallop Ceviche Tostada will continue to impress your senses. A considerable effort has been made to include some stellar vegan dishes – no half efforts here. The signature Vault Ensalada with winter leaves, Gorgonzola, balsamic marinated strawberries, and spiced almonds is sure to impress any palette, vegan or not!
A unique aspect to the business will be their very own memberships for the most discerning customer. Ranging from Gold, Silver and Bronze, members will have exclusive access to offers, gifts and invites to events. Those purchasing an entire bottle will automatically have gold membership and receive a key and personal locker space to leave their bottle for safekeeping until the next time they swing by. We’ll say this though, there’s room for more than one bottle in there!
Should you feel the need to take things up a notch and visit somewhere where you can indulgence yourself over signature cocktails, first-class spirits and memorable share plates, we think stopping by at The Vault is a wise decision.
