Brisbane’s Family Nightclub in Fortitude Valley has unveiled its multi-million dollar Vegas-style refurbishment.

Featuring marble, timber, precious metals and leathers, the new look was designed to evoke the luxury atmosphere of high-end international nightclubs and to appeal to a VIP clientele desiring luxury and privacy.

The renovation of the basement, mezzanine and VIP areas includes extensions to the existing bars, bathrooms and VIP tables as well as an overhaul of the entry and foyer.

The DJ arena features a configured four-metre high dancing catwalk and stage area, a massive LED lighting screen and complete sound system upgrade.

“There’s no doubt that the nightclub scene is evolving and changing constantly and we wanted to capitalise on this and deliver a venue that lives up to this shifting environment,” said Harry Katsanevas, Family Nightclub promotions manager and music director.

“We drew inspiration from five star nightclubs and entertainment venues in Las Vegas to deliver a nightclub of comparable standards, suitable for our regulars and those who may have not visited Family recently.”

The Mezzanine has a new bar with a hand-crafted, custom-made marble top and eight VIP tables overlooking the main stage. Each table features its own “luxe booth style seating”, a private marble table and private balcony space to enjoy the Main Room entertainment, plus premium service including priority entry, personal hostess and bottle service. 

The new Family features a VIP Room suspended high above the main dance floor, with a hand-crafted, custom-made marble private bar, floor-to-ceiling glass wall overlooking the Main Room entertainment, lush couches and seating, premium service “and total exclusivity and privacy for up to 40 guests”. 

Level Two also features a brand new cocktail lounge and The Bone Room, named after the extravagant feature bone chandelier.

“The new Family…will be a main attraction in the Valley for all punters,” claims Katsanevas.
