Since the doors opened 16 years ago, The Family has been a rite of passage for any gangly, newly 18 youth. With its enormous dance floors, pulsating lights, music and multi levels – it was a sight to behold. But like many 16-year-olds, The Family is ready to come out with a bang! And they’ve sashayed into something new – EI8HT. Yasss Kween!
The name might have changed, but it’s still the ultimate Valley party destination, just more fabulous. Don’t be mistaken in thinking EI8HT is just The Family 2.0 – she’s all grown up and has never been so glamorous. The nightclub has transformed into a multi-faceted space with a host of new offerings, including the launch of ONE on Saturdays and the Flaming Canary Rooftop Bar. Not just a nightclub, the venue itself is a sensory overload with world class music, performers and roaming entertainment.
Saturday’s renowned ONE is a sassy, inclusive safe space. Showcasing local and international performers, including musicians, burlesque, drag queens and acrobats – ONE is the fierce warm up to Sunday’s Fluffy that Brisbane has been begging for.
EI8HT promises a premier nightclub experience – with an edge. For the ultimate hen’s night or birthday (or just when you want to feel fab), you can’t look past their epic VIP Experiences.
Including express entry, bottle service (feat. Belvedere Vodka, Mumm Champagne, gin and cognac), your own exclusive drag host, a personal photographer and meet and greets with drag, burlesque and music performers – an Ei8HT VIP experience will have you feeling every inch the queen you are. Baby, your Drag Race fantasies are all about to come true.
Want to live like a VIP? EI8HT have teamed up with the Gourmand & Gourmet for the chance to win the party of year for you and 10 friends. Valued at over $1000, the prize includes a Belvedere beverage package (2 x bottles and unlimited mixers), access to the VIP area and a professional photographer for your posse – this is one prize worth cat fighting for.
So dress to express, because as said by our Queen, Ru Paul – ‘It doesn’t matter what you wear, they’re checking out your savoir-faire. And it doesn’t matter what you do looks good on you.’ As long as you’re straight up friendly and down to get down – EI8HT is the party destination for you.
