There’s something you should know before you slip out of your bikini and into your little black dress. There’s lots of fun to be had on the Sunshine Coast at night, but don’t expect venues that would give L.A. or Berlin – or even the Gold Coast – a run for their money. Most of the venues have that laid-back, relaxed atmosphere that we all love about this fabulous part of Australia. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of opportunities for a little drinking and dancing.

The Shared

It’s a little unconventional but when the timing is right you’ll have a memorable night at this ‘multifunctional artistic community space’. There are some international acts, but it’s mostly locals taking to the stage to provide the evening’s soundtrack. Don’t forget to stop by the bottle-o on your way, as the venue is often BYO.

10 Toes Brewery

Leave your dance shoes at home. This is one of the most laid-back venues on the list. You’ll find 10 Toes’ lagers and ales in many bars all along the coast, but they just seem to taste better when drunk just metres from where they were brewed.

Lot 104

It’s a cafe by day, but at night, the staff puts away their tamps and gets out their muddlers. The team behind the bar here know how to make a wicked cocktail and the moodily-lit alfresco area is the perfect place to enjoy them.

Rolling Rock

Located on Noosa’s world-famous Hastings Street, this iconic venue shows that the Coast’s beach bums know how to spin the decks and treat everyone to a good time. If you need a little fresh air, cross the street and you’re right on the beach – perfect for watching the waves roll in under the moonlight.
