The Walrus Club

One of the most unique Brisbane function venues, the Walrus Club itself is themed entirely as a 1920’s speakeasy. Described as a scene from the Great Gatsby, the venue is a winding rabbit warren of dimly lit nooks, armchairs, cozy lounges and tall tables. Candles and lamps are scattered throughout the venue, visually referencing the Prohibition era and those colourful times of yesteryear.

The Walrus Club is currently closed and is undergoing a full renovation.
