i want free sex hot gossip brothel Brisbane

.

No, most brothels are female only. The only exceptions are a few brothels that include trans women, and only 2 brothels that I'm aware of have males but those are gay brothels. No such thing as a male brothel worker for women. Do many brothels have security officers? I used to live above one it wasn't one when I moved in, the landlord leased it to them after the fact and there was always a guy hanging around, not in uniform, and I saw him having animated chats with unruly clients a few times.

A lot of them are pre-op anyway, it's not like it's a secret. People do purposely book them you know. I once had an old work mate that fell in love with a girl who worked at a brothel.

He very rarely slept with her, instead paid top dollar to sit in a spa with her and talk about TV shows and cuddle. How common are these sorts of clients? For a lot of dudes it's just about having some intimacy and companionship and cuddles and if sex happens then great but if it doesn't no harm done. They're more common as an escort I find but still a good chunk in a parlour.

I feel for those dudes I'm happily married and get free cuddles from my wife pretty much any time I want I sincerely hope those guys find someone they can cuddle.

Some of the clients I've heard about have incredibly tough, busy lives. This is a way that they have found some normality in their lives without the stresses of the emotional work a relationship needs to be healthy and successful.

Several of those men have gotten married at a point when they have achieved security either financially or career wise. The girls who they saw were so happy for these clients and added a new dimension to my understanding of how important sex workers are for community well being. That said, some of them were desperately lonely men who just couldn't seem to find the right person to have as a long term partner, or in some cases were ex-convicts who were deeply ashamed of their criminal background or that they weren't more successful in life, others were men who had been seriously hurt by bad relationships or childhood trauma and couldn't get to a healthy enough place to trust others again.

TBH, it's not always a matter of the sads. When I was younger mid-late 20's , I was really into my work gamedev. I had the money, I'm good looking and smart, so why miss out on "dating"? Escorts were the answer! They'd come to my apartment, everything was fine. Sure, first time I was anxious but not so much. I mean, they are professionals. At least at the price I was paying. All in all, good times would do again if in same situation.

My point being, they offer a real and needed and frankly practical service. It's like paying someone to be your best friend. I totally get guys who just want to fuck. I don't understand guys paying for 'intimacy' when consciously they know it's a business transaction. Everyone has different needs. Wanting intimacy is no different than wanting to fuck, it satisfies a desire. Some people thought he was strange. I liked the bloke. We had a great work relationship. I lost contact with him unfortunately.

It's honestly always pretty much a crap shoot in this industry. Generally Saturday nights are just busier later into the night, but not more busy than any other shift overall if that makes sense? Parlours are generally open till 4 or 6am on Saturday nights so you're there for longer which can mean more clients.

Haha no we're not paid by the hour, so it's not our responsibility to do any duties or chores around the establishment. We're contractors so we only get paid by clients for our services. We have multiple lounges at my parlour where girls mainly hang out on their phones on the couches, read books, go on their laptops, study, gossip and hang out with the other girls.

One of our lounges has a pool table and a pinball machine but I rarely see them used sadly. Another question, are there any instant-sackable offenses in this industry? Probably stealing money from the business. Girls can get away with a shit tonne including offering unsafe services if they're making money for the brothel.

The owners will just turn a blind eye to it. Do you think that it requires a certain level of desensitisation at times or do you genuinely enjoy it and find it to be pleasurable sometimes or most of the time?

Are there some services that you really just don't like providing but do anyway again, the desensitisation factor. Is it mostly financially motivated? Absolutely can be exhausting. It's a very personal job which requires a customer service persona at the end of the day. Pretending to be happy and bubbly for 8 hours is going to be exhausting for anyone. There's definitely a bit of desensitisation at times required for things like slightly smelly clients, or guys who are really bad at sex.

But most of the time I'm pretty happy and don't need to distance myself mentally from the booking. These are both pretty fucking rude to do to someone without previously asking if they're into them anyway. Sometimes I'm not a fan of kissing only because of how bad some people are at it. I think most people work for financial reasons in any job. Don't see many people doing the grind for free, nor would girls do sex work for free.

Not particularly, in fact less than the job I had for a while. I get enough sleep and rest and time to myself doing this job, which all aid in keeping my sex drive high in my personal life for partners.

How do you find the regulation and laws surrounding sex work? The gold standard for sex work is decriminalisation. This video does a great job at condensing down what can be a very complicated subject.

Decriminalisation is far better than legalisation, and miles better than the supposedly "protective" Nordic model. What's your take on the female "in" condom?

It's hard to come by. I also have another question, what would be the biggest Do's and Don'ts for a client when visiting? What's the typical run down list you would make sure a new staff member was aware of on their first night either new or already in the industry.

Like you know, fire exit over here, use the fridge on the left, sanitizer over there etc. I once heard bookings would end after ejaculation no matter the time limit, is that a standard thing or just miss information? Just showing them where the condoms are, how to make up the rooms, where to put used towels and condom bags.

Brothels in Victoria are forbidden to have alcohol on premises, so there are no bars in brothels. If there were we'd probably have more clients, but also more drunk clients.

The booking doesn't end, but generally that's the end of the sexual service. It's normally cum once in a booking only. If there's time left I'll give a massage or we can just lie down and relax and chat. They do, some providers offer discounts to other providers: Main reason is for fun, or for some good passionate sex.

I've never worked overseas but I know US brothels are much more expensive. They can afford to be since there's very few proper brothels!

How do you manage your work around having a partner? My ex waited 3 months into our relationship to tell me. I honestly felt more sad that she needed to resort to that kind of work more then lying to me about it. She had only been doing it several months and got out when we got serious.

I am generally very upfront with potential partners about it. It's part of who I am and if they're not comfortable with it then I wouldn't waste time on them. There are people out there that understand that it's just a job, and those are the people I am compatible with. I've previously had a partner for a full year while I was doing this job and he was fine with it. It does help that I'm generally not particularly interested in monogamous relationships regardless.

I had a very good friend for years and I found out after we stopped being friends that she worked in the adult industry, for some reason I felt hurt she could never tell me. My friends are aware. I'm lucky that I'm able to be relatively open about it, however once I start studying that will no longer be the case. I'm really glad you thought about it and realised that it was her secret to share.

I can promise you that even if she knew you were the type of person who would be okay with it etc that it still doesn't mean she could share it. The stigma surrounding sex work is so large and strong that we have to be extraordinarily careful. Even if we tell someone who is our friend at the time, if we no longer stay friends for some reason or have a falling out then there's someone who can potentially ruin our lives with what they know about us.

I've had it happen to me and it was noooooot fun. Oh I am so sorry that it did happen. Yes I can imagine how vulnerable it can make you. Also how easily someone can hold those things over you. I hope people take note of the dos and donts that you shared. Naw, don't feel creepy! I actually love my schoolgirl outfit even though I don't wear it often.

And the amount of schoolgirl roleplay porn searched for proves you're definitely not alone! What are your plans for retirement? Do you pay into a superannuation fund? I'm just genuinely curious as the hourly rates are so enviable! I don't currently, but only because I don't plan to make this my career.

It's been a stepping stone for me and I'll probably continue to do it on the side for a long time for extra spending money but it's not my whole life career. Only one that I can think of. I don't think I'd ever be able to cross the mental barrier of dating a client though.

Indian men are generally the most common clientele at most brothels I've worked at regardless of location, definitely something to do with their repressed sexual urges. What exactly makes them the worst clients? Doing things on your "don't" list above?

The list goes on and on. I'm new to going to brothels, and the first time I went was quite daunting, but I think I've got the hang of it now. Plenty of people come in high on something, for me personally I don't mind so long as they are still respectful, courteous and don't expect me to partake in drugs as I'm drug-free.

I also generally avoid coked up guys just because they're a hell of a lot of work in the room. My question is a little delicate, and i hope it doesn't cause any offence, none is intended, and obviously you're free to ignore it! Have you observed anything amongst co-workers that supports that impression?

You've mentioned studying elsewhere in this AMA, so, what are you going to study! I feel like there's a high prevalence of just women in general that have been sexually abused. I haven't gone around and done a survey of my co-workers asking them to relive their traumas so unfortunately I can't say how common it is in the industry, but I don't think it matters too much regardless. How do you know which ones to screen from booking?

And do you get burnt out socially by working with people all the time and just want to go home? Anyone that I feel uncomfortable with in the intro, I won't stay with. It's not really a case of screening, it also just depends how tired I am and how late into the night it is. If I can tell someone is going to be a long or rougher booking and I'm tired then I'll not let them book me.

I like to only offer the best service possible. I absolutely get burnt out! I'm a very introverted person so the social part of my job can be exhausting. I'm actually a pretty big fan of the bookings which are just a good hard fuck and not much chit-chat and emotional labour for that reason. Have you ever turned someone down? I'm not overly picky but sometimes towards the end of the night I don't particularly want to see a morbidly obese dude, or a guy with bad BO.

Funny you mention a swastika, I had a client with a big ol' swastika tattoo on his bicep once which I didn't see until we were in the booking. Add on 50ish if you want kissing and to go down on a girl: Do you ever get guys who come in purely as an educational type event? Like they just want you to teach them how to kiss or do other stuff?

Fuck that breaks my heart: I was very lucky that my family didn't find out as they aren't particularly close with anyone in the town. Getting outed is horrible, everyone has their moral judgements on what you're choosing to do with your own body. I pushed through the hundreds of shamey facebook inboxes I got from people in the surrounding area and moved the fuck on. If my family had found out, I'd have left and maybe written them a letter explaining why sex work was a beneficial job for me and why it isn't a terrible industry.

But mostly the advice is honestly just push the fuck through it. Those people are always going to be judgy cunts, but you'll be the one with the last laugh when they're slaving at a job trying to meet idiotic demands from a jerk boss for shit money. This is a fantastic ama. I tend to assume that working in sex or sex-related industries results in being very sex educated, do you find that's the case? As someone who works in the industry, do you feel that you have more defined or educated opinions on sex-related topics, eg.

I'd like to take my partner to a brothel as a couple, but he's concerned it would be too impersonal. Your answers give the impression that a session isn't just sex, it can be more relaxed and personal, at the clients pace. This ama is really helpful, thanks. Let's say there is a hypothetical person who is interested in hiring the services of a sex-worker for the first time.

Like they get a really good holiday for a few weeks everything paid for and they come along and be a traveling partner and a sexual partner for the trip? Sure, but you'd still have to generally pay their fees even if you're taking them on holiday. I will look into it but honestly no idea where to even start. Today I got back from a really nice 2 week cruise and it would be nice to just pay for someone to come along party, get drunk and just have a nice time with.

Depends on how much you're willing to spend and what type of lady you're into! If you're into curvy brunettes hit me up haha. Never been to a sex industry worker but I would love to take one on a holiday. My 2 week cruise would have been nicer with someone who was not a dude haha. I've had it happen a few times, especially late at night and with guys who have been drinking etc.

Doesn't bother me, I'll just wake them up at the end of the booking: I enjoy it sometimes, other times it's a hassle.

I think that goes for every job though, even a job you love won't be perfect all the time and will have it's challenges. I kind of just fell into it. Didn't feel guilty or bad afterwards for receiving money for sex sooooo I just kinda kept at it.

I enjoy the flexibility the job offers me to be my own boss and not a slave to the lifestyle. My niche is just providing a passionate girlfriend experience, which basically means I do kissing, 69, cuddling etc. Well hey, you've got the skills ot pay the bills, I do hope things pick up for you, nothing worse than the fear of not making ends meet and such.

That's a pretty chill niche to offer I think, I mean in comparison to some of the very heavy kink-esque things out there. Everyone needs cuddling and kissing and 69s!

Is there a parlour that stands head and shoulders above the others as the best place to work or the most popular with the punters? Most parlours have done something dodgy. I'm not a huge fan of brothels, if the laws for escorts were different I wouldn't work at a brothel at all. I can say expressly that Club is the worst parlour though. They fired me for reporting my sexual assault on premises to police.

We also do health checks on clients by looking at their junk under a lamp to pick up on any sort of skin changes or warts or rashes etc. How about workplace politics? Like, if that ABC show Utopia was about brothels instead of government departments, what would it be like? Sex workers typically have lower rates of STIs than the general public. You're more likely to catch the flu. Is there some study done years ago, comparing the rates of STI's among sex workers to that of nursing students?

From memory the nursing students rates were off the chats compared to the pros. I myself don't, but it's an ideal job when you have kids because you make your own hours and can make a decent chunk of money in a short time. Is drug use prevalent in your establishment?

Are you treated well by "management? Are you currently in a relationship? Have you ever started a relationship with a client? Do you like Pretty Woman? Some girls use drugs, most don't.

I'm pretty sure there's a lot of jobs where people use drugs though. Tbh so long as a girl on drugs doesn't impact me and doesn't draw in bad clients then I don't care. I'd rather her be working and able to afford rent and food etc than living on the street starving. Sorry I missed the rest of the questions. I'm treated decently by management where I am now, though the rates are a bit low for my liking.

I am currently single. I've never started a relationship with a client although I did take one home at the end of my shift once. Charming, good at sex, good looking, all of the above? Nothing in particular tbh, he was decent looking and had a really great dick.

But mostly it was just that there was a weird spark when we had sex and we both felt it. You mentioned in one of your earlier answers that you started in the industry by putting up an advertisement online. Do you still work "independently" or do you work exclusively out of a brothel now? Can you group your clients together on an average night. What is the majority i. Has anything changed in your outlook on life men, relationships, day-to-day dealings with people since getting into this line of business?

I'm definitely a little more jaded when it comes to men and relationships. I see so many clients who are unfaithful to their partners that I wonder whether monogamy is ever truly possible. So I have avoided using it ever sense, simply going with 'sex worker', and if the need to differentiate your specific form of sex work arises having sex with clients , I use the term 'full service sex worker'.

What are your thoughts on this use of terminology? Thanks for doing the AMA, it's been very informative about an industry often shrouded in mystery. Prostitute is a slur with a very long, negative and damaging history. Some sex workers do choose to reclaim words or use them themselves at times. I make whore jokes about myself and my sex worker friends, but if someone else said that I was a whore to my face and didn't apologise when called out on it then I'd have nothing to do with them.

Sex worker is the best term to go with, and then yes full service sex worker if specifying someone that fucks their clients: And apparently all sex workers are women, male and trans sex workers are completely ignored by SWERFs in their hysteria about how transactional sex is inherently violent to all women by reducing women to commercial objects etc. This thread is now locked.

This user is now banned. Have you ever been to the Netherlands? I'm from Amsterdam where we have the in famous red-light district. Streets and alleys where women sit behind glass doors and I guess advertise themselves. I understand why it exists in the form that it does, there's clearly a need, but it doesn't align with my idea of how I feel you should treat another person. In the 10 years I lived there it took me a long time to have the guts to ask someone how much it would cost to have sex with her.

I had a friend who worked there and he used to give us all free drinks until he got fired for losing the club money, Maybe they lost so much money that's when it became the Underground Bar. We used to start almost every night out with a booze up at the Cri, which was very dodgy but very, very cheap. They stupidly had free drink vouchers you could basically photocopy and reproduce in the thousands. There was a secret passage to Alices, which was fantastic since the frigging stairs down to that dive were impossible to navigate after a certain hour.

Must be over 28 to attend. Who can forget the late 90s band venue purge that saw many of our seediest live venues turn into strip joints. Crash n Burn in the city - now a strip joint. The Chelsea in the Val - changed to strip joint and then into a nightclub and the one on Stanley st at the gabba that turned into bad girls. I spent many a drunk night there and now the name has completely escaped my mind Remember the old Embassy at the cnr of Edward and Elizabeth streets?

A dingy public bar along the Elizabeth Street side. Then a corridor off Edward street, lined with poker machines, led to the private or saloon bar at the rear. Was not gentrified at all. The flavour of the old Embassy style still lives on downstairs in the current pokies lounge.

Also nicknamed The Court Molester because of how easy it was to get entry if you were a high school girl. Does anyone remember the 'Red Room' at the back of the Indooroopilly Hotel. It's dark ambience made it look a cross between the bar out of Star Wars and an Amsterdam brothel.

An old pissed bloke was the regular DJ, being the one to change over the cassettes in a tape player resting on a torn bar stool.

Dirt in the beer lines meant every pot of XXXX came with added minerals. It later became a sports bar, and I stopped going. I went to the closing party before the refurb. They auctioned off all the crap from the old front bar. My mate bought a teapot!?!

There used to be a pub in the valley called the "Dead Rat". Extremely dodgy and the name always made me laugh. I think it's now one of the new trendy bars Also, where the Stock Exchange in the city is now used to be called "Club " and it was a very scary looking pub full of tough looking men. Needless to say they were all turfed out when it turned into the Stocky and got taken over by younger and just as aggressive drunks.

Mary Street Thursday night dollar drinks, which were actually half nips has actually become an architect's office.

All fun and games, until the lunatics ruined it with one stabbed bouncer, one shot patron, and one stabbed sailor, giving the precinct bordered by The Victory, City Rowers and Fridays the name "The Assault Triangle". The Dead Rat was great. It was, I believe, next to The Rat and Parrot - a classic corner bar with TAB and titties in the front room and pokies and roast lunches in the back room. It's now become The Fringe Bar, a bland chocolate brown and chrome number. Wonderful venue, particularly during the mid- to lates guitar pop revolution which seemed to be happening around the country and when Bris was put on the map thanks to the Gurge, Finger, Custard, etc.

Was a great time to be young and into music in Brisbane then! Can't seem to remember it's name Didnt the Grand Orbit nightclub also see a bouncer shot or stabbed maybe around Now the quite respectable Vinos restaurant. VG earlobe - what a great name and what a great dingy place that was! I remember getting there using a dodgy Learners Permit when I was 16 17 years ago!!! AFter it closed there the indie temple moved to the valley on wickham st - used to be the old technomad or some dance club.

Was a nice big stage. Closed down a couple years ago - we played the last night. I think the signs still up though. The healer used to be next to the chelsea, and then the chelsea changed its name to the Rev. They were great live venues - the acoustics of a an old church Shame - all the good pubs have been yuppified.

What ever happened to the Downunder Bar? Is it still there? And the indi club in the Orient with the gogo dancers, the one in the pub next door to dendys in George Street [Majestic? Wasnt the Dead Rat the Water Rat?

Even had a period perfect Bjelke-esque illegal casino upstairs. Was funny to be on stage playing and see a couple of suits stop for a drink at the bar with the punks before disappearing upstairs.

It then became Images. I think I lost my handbag hundreds of times because it used revolve around the room with all the other misplaced handbags. Damn, showing my age! They didn't even renovate it when they changed - and it really needs it! Now THAT is a nasty club. Does anyone remember the Britannia Inn at the top of the Wintergarden? It's now probably either Strike Bowling Alley or Hitachi. I think it became Gilhooley's Downtown or something.

Not sure what it is now. Showing my lack of age I saw many 'so bad they are good' punk and hardcore bands there before it has now become an apartment complex. I also remember the toilets, which were scrawled with great profane messages and flyers from old bands that probably moved on to a life in the suburbs with the kids.

I also had to wonder what happened to the toilet seats that kept getting stolen from there as well. Who wants a filthy pub toilet seat as a souvenir?

The Plough Inn at South Bank enjoyed a peak period from about ' It was an hugely popular Karaoke venue and i remember the bar staff would stand on the tables near the dancefloor and give tequila shots to everyone. Charlotte's on Charlotte street was damn dingy. It used to say "Every man and his dog loves Charlotte's" on the wall outside. Then it became , I think.

Also, there was a club under the Myer Centre where Fernwood is, under the escalators which always seemed to be inhabited by freaks. Superdeluxe in the Empire was pretty cool, even though it was often staffed and populated by pretentious "too cool for school" wankers. Still, jumping around to Song 2 was fun. It did a stint as a comedy club but is now just about dead as the tavern is underground with no smoking area for all the public servants.

I remember Wall St quite well - going up in that dodgy lift was always an interesting experience. A rather unlikely place for a nightclub. Whenever I walk past that building now I'm reminded of it. Lexington Queen used to be called "Hot Gossip" in the late 80's I think. I was standing outside one day and some guy just walked up, beat up the bouncer, and walked off - in broad daylight.

Savoury establishment that it was. There was "Backstage" underneath the Alliance Tavern. It was student city up the top and Goths and sub-cultures underneath. That was an amazingly, authentically grungy venue which I frequented, and also the endless string of bands at St Paul's across the road.

Periodic 70s madness - those nights were always really good. Metropolis, which was the one under the Myer Centre, and once in the Scientology building down Albert St or Edward, can't quite remember. It's a Chinese furniture store now, I believe. Of course the "Bombshelter Bar" at the Story Bridge was more recently gentrified, but first emasculated by the self-interested noise complaints of the newly-arrived upwardly mobile.

Back in my Uni days mid '80s "White Chairs" was the only place to be if you were into alternative music. I think the real name was the Elizabeth St Bar, and it was demolished when the Myer Centre was built. Used to go to the Mars Bar, which was close, but not sure where? I obviously haven't spent much time in Brisbane since then! Dooley's in the early 80s was the Husienda - a gay bar. My favorite spot in the valley was the Terminus nite club - across the road from the Train station and down the dark stairs - it was always open after the pubs shut My earliest nightclub memory is Pips Nightclub.

It used to be located in Charlotte Street, opposite the entry doors of the now demolished Festival Hall. Pips is probably long gone by now, but was very popular in the late 70s - early 80s. I think Cafe Neon is now a 'gentleman's club'? Also, there was a nightclub in a pub on the corner where Queen and Anne streets met called ? Still have the tape. And throughout all of that, Friday's is still Fridays.

I used to go there when I was at uni - late 80s - on Tuesday nights when they had all you can drink cocktails.

No one's mentioned the Rev - which is now called Mass i think which is a converted church just near the zoo. Berties tavern underneath the Myer centre where Sizzlers is. Bouncer inviting me and my 15 year old mates inside for a drink. I was in grade 10 and wearing high top sneakers. Soon graduated to Club Rumours up the valley end of Adelaide street. In the late 80's it was the place to be, with a big dance floor overlooked by a mezzanine floor. Played great house music.

I was only In about the end of they clamped down on underage drinking, so things slowed down for a little while. Best places then were out of the way, like the Hilton bar of the jazz bar under the Travelodge.

Ahh, the memories come flooding back. I remember being to blind to get my winning drinks for doing the "bum dance" on stage, I know, back when the first Big Brother came out, long time ago we are all so old.

But I was thinking there is prob. The Victory Hotel 2. Rosies is still operating i think. Underground is downstairs which is now the Pheonix emo club Night club with revolving dance floor was called 'Images' at the time early '80's it was the S. I worked as a chef ther from till '83 ish. The place has been a club for years but sadly the era will end in May when the building comes down to make way for a carpark!!!

I seem to have a vague idea that the land office altenate club used to be called "Bleach" also. That was one crazy place Remember going there with a mate for a ministry cd release.

Hogies had the full nips and free entry Thursdays. Mary St had only half nips but better music The deal was to get into Mary St before 8pm upstairs then get a stamp at 8pm leave with intent to go back later and walk through the carpark now gone to Hogies.

I remember the original Underground near Hale Street saw lots of visiting celebs there Rowes when it was a gay bar now Rosies , Sibyl's when it was stylish, The Terminus Very famous Gay nightclub in Brunswick Street almost opposite train station ,and the Garden Bar?? Twain's, Juliana's and Penthouse in the late 70s and early 80s The Criterion is one of the oldest pubs still churning out the beers - it was there before the MLC centre or whatever it's now called was built and used to be known as the Marble Bar.

The "secret passage" between the Cri and Alices was actually the staff entry because they were both owned by the Weller Rowles Group and a group of three managers oversaw both places. Apparently there used to be a club across the road in the complex now housing the library. Can't believe no one mentioned Jackass Gingers - weird name considering it wasn't a gay pub - which was post-Cafe Neon and pre-Velvet Cigar. I have been out of Brisbane for a few years now.

It is , and if the Indie Temple has closed down that is indeed a sad thing. I am in Mackay North Qld, and am keen to see a similar thing happen in this town. The Indie Temple was a great forum for new and ermerging artists. If there is no replacement forum in Brisbane at this time for what the Indie Temple achieved, then I am saddened and it is a loss for original music in a town that has been prolific in terms of artists in the past. Sorry if I'm off topic but I just had to pay homage.

I had some MAD fun there. That was my stomping ground. The red lounges, the music, the trip down the mirrored stairs. Those were the days So long ago now. I was SUCH a regular. And I didn't know it. Even when the doorman never charged me, but it hit home when the barmaid told me my order. City Rowers - hated the place, they were still playing vanilla ice in ! Grand Orbit - I was there the night the bouncer got shot 3.

Fridays who cares 4. The GIG - great place to get stabbed! The Vic - place has barely changed although they never had an upstairs 6. Club was charlottes I wasted 5 years of my life there! Joe was the DJ 7. Transformers - 20 cent drinks thursday nights 8. Mary St - dark stinky smelly joint! Hogies - formely transformers - was too small! PJ Obriens - stinky toilets downstairs!

Sibyls - too far out of town! Someplace else Grab a granny! The BEAT - when they had lights in the dancefloor!

Her Maj - bogan central The Cri - Piano bar before they ruined it Cautions - near club LA - The underground - Big Wayne used to DJ there Club LA or 'club get laid' Dead Rat - now the Fringe bar Wall St - never went there! The TUBE - in the valley! Easy Street - Ipswich - crap! The Roxy - went to a rave there in 93 "Blackout" Arena - across the road from the Roxy Transcontinental - was huge around Back then all clubs were open til 5am.

Chuppa chups, glow sticks and mixed lollies were trendy. Cross colours jeans were cool. Flat tops were still in. Heres Johnny, 2 Unlimited and Culture beat were hits, city people hated valley people and vice versa.

Smoke machines, and purple flouros were everywhere. Everyone did the running man. You asked the cabbie to stop at an ATM so you could pay him. There were a lot of people who used to go to Mass at the LAnds Office. It was a great place. I was one of those goths sitting on the floor every Friday and Saturday night. For those of you who care, the Lands Office will live and breathe again from the 13th June, I am happy to announce that an indie club called Overdrive will be openeing there from that date.

Friday Saturday nights from 9. It is going to be a fantastic club. Anyone here remember Viva up on Caxton street? Was kinda like Grand Orbit in a sense. Does anyone remember that floating nightclub that went up and down the river The Roxy is now the Arena.

Also, did you used to go to Mass? Casablancas - catch a wanker 2. System 6 - dark spooky little club in the valley with fake snow on the ceiling, weird. Rockafellas - still there. Lush - strip joint in the valley, not sure if its still there, was seedy as.

Rumours, or has this already been mentioned? Right heres one for you.. I know sundays were soul train but can some one help with the wednesday night name? They used to have a fashion show on Was it called go go's? What was the other one called in the myer centre S- the roxy used to be called manhattans..

The roxy is now the arena What about rumours night club on adelaide street.. Transformers used to have that layback chair on the second level to do shooters What about the fm cafe and bar in the myer centre downstairs.. These were the best places to go. Does anyone know how I can get in contact with people that I used to hang out with at these places.

Cherie Brown and Delain. Wall St Night Club the industry club. Came to life from I was the manager of Wall St for many years. I am working on a web site of all the great and Bad clubs in Brisbane over the last couple of decades.

Im after some date of when all these great places opened there doors but more importantly closed. For those that did not know or know him. Atila Hoth, manager of the post office amd many other over the last 20 years.

If you know any actual dates of opening and closing of great venues. Was it called Friday's??? Hey, I heard some terrible news today. The old site for Her Majestys is due for demolition!!!!!! I hear that that the Wintergarden is doing some major renovations and the Bar is to go!!! Anyone mention the Crash and burn? Also, i remeber that Van Gogh's Earlobe spent time as the Capitol before becoming a strip joint.

Saw The Paradise Motel there. I seem to remeber the punk scene getting moved about a bit too. Ever go past the treasury on a friday night and look up to the second floor balcony? Mind you this was in the early 70's. Anyone remember the name of the place.

It would help with the book i am writing. Wow those were the days, what i can remember of them. Then there was the National Hotel, the Bar on Queen Street and accross the road from that another club, can't remember it's name either. Please help, alzheimers is setting in.

No aggro but a bloody great night. Wish we still had some of these places left instead of the boring plastic pubs that have taken over! I would very much like to organise a get together of all those who may have hung out at CLUB in Brisbane between the years In the seventies, whenever in Brisbane for a brief period, I worked at several different places which are no longer there.

In I worked in one of the first cocktail bars open to the general public where one didn't have to buy a meal in order to drink there. I've forgotten the name of the hotel, but I believe it was near the Zebra Hotel.

Can anyone enlighten me? Another time, I worked in the bar of the Hibiscus Room on the top floor of Lennons hotel with it's magical view of the city. I was also a few months at Blinkers Nite Club. Most of the customers were okay, but there were also some sleezy ones.

The two European bosses were fantastic. Roundabout that time, I had a brief affair with the licencee of what I think was called the George Hotel, opposite Roma Street Station, which was eventually transformed into the 'The Trans'. If my memory serves me right, when I went there with my daughter in , the bar on the second floor which I think was oblong was full of young sophisticates, and situated in the same place the licencee used to have his sleeping quarters.

Rooms were rented out to permanent borders and the only bar I remember was a long public bar almost covering the length of the downstairs floor. At 21, I worked as function hostess at the National Hotel. On Saturdays there were as many as five functions often weddings going on at the same time.

Nowadays that's nothing, but not so back in Warren's bar was still going strong and Warren himself, with his black nail polish on long fingernails was quite a drawcard. The club at the top of the suncorp building was called Images, New York building in the now queen street mall, had a club called wilsons before the myers center, there was a pub on Elizabeth street called the elizabeth Street bar which people used to call "white chairs", The vally had the Outpost next to the beat, the Love inn oppersite the now mustang bar, lots has change He passed Jan and rests in Nudgee Cemetery Brisbane.

He had been lost to our large family for years and it appears his last days saw him down in his luck. I have just gone online for the first time in 8 years. Morticias at the Orient hotel. Backstage at alliance, myself and many friends lived upstairs.

Across the road at St Pauls Tavern Wastelands. The Roxy in Fort Valley. Jason or Turtle as he was known Andy etc. I have often wanted to see a reunion. The punks Suicidal Mike Damien etc so many so long ago. Used to be at different venues around town once a month early 90's?? Oh, how I loved that sticky carpet at Mass!!! Does anyone have any photos of Images Nightclub from the 's? If so I'd love to get copies! I used to be a bouncer there on weekends. Great crowd, daggy music, fun times.

I can't for the life of me remember the name of the nightclub that was inside the paddo tavern in the 80s. I remember the Wintergarden, used to party there in the early 80s with the army guys and the girls I worked with at Chambers, Mcnab I worked there for 3 months then joined the army lol John Bell was my boss, the old whisky a go go boss. I used to party at court jesters, court molester we called it lol.. I also went to the beat when it first opened and watched a caberet show where they dressed in costumes from the show cats, one of the dancers actually caught their wigs on fire the night I saw it, it was a cool club for straight girls, no men would hit on you lol..

I seen some great bitch fights between the gay men though, and the dancing was fierce, all this european high energy music I have so many memories from that time, brisbane was rocking back then. I actually met my daughters father at the roxy back in 86, the laser show was the highlight back then.

Hollywoods was cool too, 7am shutting time Can't remember the name of the club in the the Suncorp Building with the revolving floor I remember so many of the clubs mentioned during the periods and the cheap drinks and the wonderful times. Special mention for me is Tracks and the huge paw print on the dance floor, 20c rum and bourbon nights and the infamous go go dancers one of whom 20 years later married my best mate.

Does anyone remember a bloke played acoustic and sang loads irish folk stuff often at The Shamrock.. And what happened to that publican Sean Weelan. When Mary St wasn't working for me, I'd take a walk down to a block to Zanzibar grabing a kabab on the way Anyone else ever go there? Heard a few mentions of Metropolis - under the Myer Centre. My fav touring band venue at the time. Does anyone remember The Daniel Bar? It used to be on the opposite side of Tracks nightclub.

I think Morticias was also there for a while. I am talking mid 80's here. Would love to hear from someone who remembers either - I was only about 15 then, but god they were good times!!

The Move was in the Majestic Hotel in the late 80's. I can't remember their last name. There was also an awful night club called Reflections in the bottom of the Sheraton.

I don't think anyone has mentioned that place yet. I have had so much fun reading these posts. I had forgotten about most of these places and it bought back so many memories. Sigh, I remember drinking sharing many a jug of bourbon and Coke at Crash n Burn with my boyf circa - I also remember seeing Grinspoon there when they were starting out The boyf is long gone but I still have two memories of Crash N Burn: I remember the Mass well old lands office, now closed. I think it was also called club velcro for a short while?

The Babylon mentioned earlier, I think was spelled Babble-on unless I'm thinking of a different club all a bit blurry back then.

I want free sex hot gossip brothel Brisbane

FREE PERSONALS LOCAL CASUAL SEX SYDNEY

Would have been the perfect opportunity to turkey slap her but she probably would have bitten my cock off if I did: The best thing about the whole experience for me is that it boosted my self-confidence.

Here was a woman who if we met at university and talked to each other during tutorials we may have dated or at least been great friends. What I like about this comment is 1 You've admitted you've used their services and 2 You've explained part of the good that sex workers bring into communities, they help people and 3 You've humanised working girls in a way that is so rarely done.

You seem respectful and for my friends and family who've been in the industry, I thank you for this. I've admitted I've used their services and I do not see a big deal with that to be honest. I am not necessarily happy that I go to sex workers and I told her that.

However, I am not going to hide the fact that I went to a brothel on an online forum where I am basically anonymous. Sex work is just a job like any other job. So I do not feel that a really good sex worker helps a person anymore than a really good counsellor.

Well I guess she demanded to be humanised in a way. I can not help but admire her resilience and just raw intelligence, she told me about her past, what she does outside of sex work, and her hopes for the future.

Though she did have particular methods to hold back somewhat such as always having high heels on. I did end up giving her my number and she said she will get in touch but I never heard anything back. It's a pity but as I said she found the job really tough, and I guess meeting a former client outside of a brothel would just be too much for her.

No, most brothels are female only. The only exceptions are a few brothels that include trans women, and only 2 brothels that I'm aware of have males but those are gay brothels. No such thing as a male brothel worker for women. Do many brothels have security officers? I used to live above one it wasn't one when I moved in, the landlord leased it to them after the fact and there was always a guy hanging around, not in uniform, and I saw him having animated chats with unruly clients a few times.

A lot of them are pre-op anyway, it's not like it's a secret. People do purposely book them you know. I once had an old work mate that fell in love with a girl who worked at a brothel. He very rarely slept with her, instead paid top dollar to sit in a spa with her and talk about TV shows and cuddle.

How common are these sorts of clients? For a lot of dudes it's just about having some intimacy and companionship and cuddles and if sex happens then great but if it doesn't no harm done.

They're more common as an escort I find but still a good chunk in a parlour. I feel for those dudes I'm happily married and get free cuddles from my wife pretty much any time I want I sincerely hope those guys find someone they can cuddle. Some of the clients I've heard about have incredibly tough, busy lives.

This is a way that they have found some normality in their lives without the stresses of the emotional work a relationship needs to be healthy and successful. Several of those men have gotten married at a point when they have achieved security either financially or career wise. The girls who they saw were so happy for these clients and added a new dimension to my understanding of how important sex workers are for community well being. That said, some of them were desperately lonely men who just couldn't seem to find the right person to have as a long term partner, or in some cases were ex-convicts who were deeply ashamed of their criminal background or that they weren't more successful in life, others were men who had been seriously hurt by bad relationships or childhood trauma and couldn't get to a healthy enough place to trust others again.

TBH, it's not always a matter of the sads. When I was younger mid-late 20's , I was really into my work gamedev. I had the money, I'm good looking and smart, so why miss out on "dating"? Escorts were the answer! They'd come to my apartment, everything was fine.

Sure, first time I was anxious but not so much. I mean, they are professionals. At least at the price I was paying. All in all, good times would do again if in same situation. My point being, they offer a real and needed and frankly practical service. It's like paying someone to be your best friend.

I totally get guys who just want to fuck. I don't understand guys paying for 'intimacy' when consciously they know it's a business transaction. Everyone has different needs. Wanting intimacy is no different than wanting to fuck, it satisfies a desire. Some people thought he was strange. I liked the bloke. We had a great work relationship.

I lost contact with him unfortunately. It's honestly always pretty much a crap shoot in this industry. Generally Saturday nights are just busier later into the night, but not more busy than any other shift overall if that makes sense? Parlours are generally open till 4 or 6am on Saturday nights so you're there for longer which can mean more clients. Haha no we're not paid by the hour, so it's not our responsibility to do any duties or chores around the establishment.

We're contractors so we only get paid by clients for our services. We have multiple lounges at my parlour where girls mainly hang out on their phones on the couches, read books, go on their laptops, study, gossip and hang out with the other girls.

One of our lounges has a pool table and a pinball machine but I rarely see them used sadly. Another question, are there any instant-sackable offenses in this industry? Probably stealing money from the business. Girls can get away with a shit tonne including offering unsafe services if they're making money for the brothel. The owners will just turn a blind eye to it. Do you think that it requires a certain level of desensitisation at times or do you genuinely enjoy it and find it to be pleasurable sometimes or most of the time?

Are there some services that you really just don't like providing but do anyway again, the desensitisation factor. Is it mostly financially motivated? Absolutely can be exhausting. It's a very personal job which requires a customer service persona at the end of the day. Pretending to be happy and bubbly for 8 hours is going to be exhausting for anyone. There's definitely a bit of desensitisation at times required for things like slightly smelly clients, or guys who are really bad at sex.

But most of the time I'm pretty happy and don't need to distance myself mentally from the booking. These are both pretty fucking rude to do to someone without previously asking if they're into them anyway. Sometimes I'm not a fan of kissing only because of how bad some people are at it.

I think most people work for financial reasons in any job. Don't see many people doing the grind for free, nor would girls do sex work for free. Not particularly, in fact less than the job I had for a while. I get enough sleep and rest and time to myself doing this job, which all aid in keeping my sex drive high in my personal life for partners. How do you find the regulation and laws surrounding sex work? The gold standard for sex work is decriminalisation. This video does a great job at condensing down what can be a very complicated subject.

Decriminalisation is far better than legalisation, and miles better than the supposedly "protective" Nordic model. What's your take on the female "in" condom?

It's hard to come by. I also have another question, what would be the biggest Do's and Don'ts for a client when visiting? What's the typical run down list you would make sure a new staff member was aware of on their first night either new or already in the industry.

Like you know, fire exit over here, use the fridge on the left, sanitizer over there etc. I once heard bookings would end after ejaculation no matter the time limit, is that a standard thing or just miss information? Just showing them where the condoms are, how to make up the rooms, where to put used towels and condom bags.

Brothels in Victoria are forbidden to have alcohol on premises, so there are no bars in brothels. If there were we'd probably have more clients, but also more drunk clients. The booking doesn't end, but generally that's the end of the sexual service. It's normally cum once in a booking only. If there's time left I'll give a massage or we can just lie down and relax and chat.

They do, some providers offer discounts to other providers: Main reason is for fun, or for some good passionate sex. I've never worked overseas but I know US brothels are much more expensive. They can afford to be since there's very few proper brothels! How do you manage your work around having a partner?

My ex waited 3 months into our relationship to tell me. I honestly felt more sad that she needed to resort to that kind of work more then lying to me about it. She had only been doing it several months and got out when we got serious. I am generally very upfront with potential partners about it. It's part of who I am and if they're not comfortable with it then I wouldn't waste time on them. There are people out there that understand that it's just a job, and those are the people I am compatible with.

I've previously had a partner for a full year while I was doing this job and he was fine with it. It does help that I'm generally not particularly interested in monogamous relationships regardless.

I had a very good friend for years and I found out after we stopped being friends that she worked in the adult industry, for some reason I felt hurt she could never tell me. My friends are aware. I'm lucky that I'm able to be relatively open about it, however once I start studying that will no longer be the case.

I'm really glad you thought about it and realised that it was her secret to share. I can promise you that even if she knew you were the type of person who would be okay with it etc that it still doesn't mean she could share it. The stigma surrounding sex work is so large and strong that we have to be extraordinarily careful. Even if we tell someone who is our friend at the time, if we no longer stay friends for some reason or have a falling out then there's someone who can potentially ruin our lives with what they know about us.

I've had it happen to me and it was noooooot fun. Oh I am so sorry that it did happen. Yes I can imagine how vulnerable it can make you. Also how easily someone can hold those things over you. I hope people take note of the dos and donts that you shared. Naw, don't feel creepy! I actually love my schoolgirl outfit even though I don't wear it often. And the amount of schoolgirl roleplay porn searched for proves you're definitely not alone!

What are your plans for retirement? Do you pay into a superannuation fund? I'm just genuinely curious as the hourly rates are so enviable!

I don't currently, but only because I don't plan to make this my career. It's been a stepping stone for me and I'll probably continue to do it on the side for a long time for extra spending money but it's not my whole life career.

Only one that I can think of. I don't think I'd ever be able to cross the mental barrier of dating a client though. Indian men are generally the most common clientele at most brothels I've worked at regardless of location, definitely something to do with their repressed sexual urges.

What exactly makes them the worst clients? Doing things on your "don't" list above? The list goes on and on. I'm new to going to brothels, and the first time I went was quite daunting, but I think I've got the hang of it now. Plenty of people come in high on something, for me personally I don't mind so long as they are still respectful, courteous and don't expect me to partake in drugs as I'm drug-free. I also generally avoid coked up guys just because they're a hell of a lot of work in the room.

My question is a little delicate, and i hope it doesn't cause any offence, none is intended, and obviously you're free to ignore it!

Have you observed anything amongst co-workers that supports that impression? You've mentioned studying elsewhere in this AMA, so, what are you going to study! I feel like there's a high prevalence of just women in general that have been sexually abused. I haven't gone around and done a survey of my co-workers asking them to relive their traumas so unfortunately I can't say how common it is in the industry, but I don't think it matters too much regardless.

How do you know which ones to screen from booking? And do you get burnt out socially by working with people all the time and just want to go home? Anyone that I feel uncomfortable with in the intro, I won't stay with. It's not really a case of screening, it also just depends how tired I am and how late into the night it is.

If I can tell someone is going to be a long or rougher booking and I'm tired then I'll not let them book me. I like to only offer the best service possible. I absolutely get burnt out! I'm a very introverted person so the social part of my job can be exhausting. I'm actually a pretty big fan of the bookings which are just a good hard fuck and not much chit-chat and emotional labour for that reason. Have you ever turned someone down? I'm not overly picky but sometimes towards the end of the night I don't particularly want to see a morbidly obese dude, or a guy with bad BO.

Funny you mention a swastika, I had a client with a big ol' swastika tattoo on his bicep once which I didn't see until we were in the booking. Add on 50ish if you want kissing and to go down on a girl: Do you ever get guys who come in purely as an educational type event?

Like they just want you to teach them how to kiss or do other stuff? Fuck that breaks my heart: I was very lucky that my family didn't find out as they aren't particularly close with anyone in the town. Getting outed is horrible, everyone has their moral judgements on what you're choosing to do with your own body. I pushed through the hundreds of shamey facebook inboxes I got from people in the surrounding area and moved the fuck on. If my family had found out, I'd have left and maybe written them a letter explaining why sex work was a beneficial job for me and why it isn't a terrible industry.

But mostly the advice is honestly just push the fuck through it. Those people are always going to be judgy cunts, but you'll be the one with the last laugh when they're slaving at a job trying to meet idiotic demands from a jerk boss for shit money. This is a fantastic ama. I tend to assume that working in sex or sex-related industries results in being very sex educated, do you find that's the case?

As someone who works in the industry, do you feel that you have more defined or educated opinions on sex-related topics, eg. I'd like to take my partner to a brothel as a couple, but he's concerned it would be too impersonal. Your answers give the impression that a session isn't just sex, it can be more relaxed and personal, at the clients pace. This ama is really helpful, thanks. Let's say there is a hypothetical person who is interested in hiring the services of a sex-worker for the first time.

Like they get a really good holiday for a few weeks everything paid for and they come along and be a traveling partner and a sexual partner for the trip? Sure, but you'd still have to generally pay their fees even if you're taking them on holiday. I will look into it but honestly no idea where to even start. Today I got back from a really nice 2 week cruise and it would be nice to just pay for someone to come along party, get drunk and just have a nice time with.

Depends on how much you're willing to spend and what type of lady you're into! If you're into curvy brunettes hit me up haha. Never been to a sex industry worker but I would love to take one on a holiday. My 2 week cruise would have been nicer with someone who was not a dude haha. I've had it happen a few times, especially late at night and with guys who have been drinking etc. Doesn't bother me, I'll just wake them up at the end of the booking: I enjoy it sometimes, other times it's a hassle.

I think that goes for every job though, even a job you love won't be perfect all the time and will have it's challenges. I kind of just fell into it. Didn't feel guilty or bad afterwards for receiving money for sex sooooo I just kinda kept at it.

I enjoy the flexibility the job offers me to be my own boss and not a slave to the lifestyle. My niche is just providing a passionate girlfriend experience, which basically means I do kissing, 69, cuddling etc. Well hey, you've got the skills ot pay the bills, I do hope things pick up for you, nothing worse than the fear of not making ends meet and such. That's a pretty chill niche to offer I think, I mean in comparison to some of the very heavy kink-esque things out there. Everyone needs cuddling and kissing and 69s!

Is there a parlour that stands head and shoulders above the others as the best place to work or the most popular with the punters? Most parlours have done something dodgy. I'm not a huge fan of brothels, if the laws for escorts were different I wouldn't work at a brothel at all.

I can say expressly that Club is the worst parlour though. They fired me for reporting my sexual assault on premises to police. We also do health checks on clients by looking at their junk under a lamp to pick up on any sort of skin changes or warts or rashes etc.

How about workplace politics? Like, if that ABC show Utopia was about brothels instead of government departments, what would it be like? Sex workers typically have lower rates of STIs than the general public. You're more likely to catch the flu. Is there some study done years ago, comparing the rates of STI's among sex workers to that of nursing students?

From memory the nursing students rates were off the chats compared to the pros. I myself don't, but it's an ideal job when you have kids because you make your own hours and can make a decent chunk of money in a short time.

Is drug use prevalent in your establishment? Are you treated well by "management? Are you currently in a relationship? Have you ever started a relationship with a client?

Do you like Pretty Woman? Some girls use drugs, most don't. I'm pretty sure there's a lot of jobs where people use drugs though. Tbh so long as a girl on drugs doesn't impact me and doesn't draw in bad clients then I don't care.

I'd rather her be working and able to afford rent and food etc than living on the street starving. Sorry I missed the rest of the questions. I'm treated decently by management where I am now, though the rates are a bit low for my liking. I am currently single. I've never started a relationship with a client although I did take one home at the end of my shift once. Charming, good at sex, good looking, all of the above?

Nothing in particular tbh, he was decent looking and had a really great dick. But mostly it was just that there was a weird spark when we had sex and we both felt it.

You mentioned in one of your earlier answers that you started in the industry by putting up an advertisement online. Do you still work "independently" or do you work exclusively out of a brothel now? Can you group your clients together on an average night. What is the majority i. Has anything changed in your outlook on life men, relationships, day-to-day dealings with people since getting into this line of business?

I'm definitely a little more jaded when it comes to men and relationships. I see so many clients who are unfaithful to their partners that I wonder whether monogamy is ever truly possible. PJ Obriens - stinky toilets downstairs! Sibyls - too far out of town! Someplace else Grab a granny! The BEAT - when they had lights in the dancefloor! Her Maj - bogan central The Cri - Piano bar before they ruined it Cautions - near club LA - The underground - Big Wayne used to DJ there Club LA or 'club get laid' Dead Rat - now the Fringe bar Wall St - never went there!

The TUBE - in the valley! Easy Street - Ipswich - crap! The Roxy - went to a rave there in 93 "Blackout" Arena - across the road from the Roxy Transcontinental - was huge around Back then all clubs were open til 5am.

Chuppa chups, glow sticks and mixed lollies were trendy. Cross colours jeans were cool. Flat tops were still in. Heres Johnny, 2 Unlimited and Culture beat were hits, city people hated valley people and vice versa. Smoke machines, and purple flouros were everywhere. Everyone did the running man. You asked the cabbie to stop at an ATM so you could pay him. There were a lot of people who used to go to Mass at the LAnds Office.

It was a great place. I was one of those goths sitting on the floor every Friday and Saturday night. For those of you who care, the Lands Office will live and breathe again from the 13th June, I am happy to announce that an indie club called Overdrive will be openeing there from that date. Friday Saturday nights from 9. It is going to be a fantastic club. Anyone here remember Viva up on Caxton street? Was kinda like Grand Orbit in a sense. Does anyone remember that floating nightclub that went up and down the river The Roxy is now the Arena.

Also, did you used to go to Mass? Casablancas - catch a wanker 2. System 6 - dark spooky little club in the valley with fake snow on the ceiling, weird. Rockafellas - still there. Lush - strip joint in the valley, not sure if its still there, was seedy as. Rumours, or has this already been mentioned?

Right heres one for you.. I know sundays were soul train but can some one help with the wednesday night name? They used to have a fashion show on Was it called go go's? What was the other one called in the myer centre S- the roxy used to be called manhattans..

The roxy is now the arena What about rumours night club on adelaide street.. Transformers used to have that layback chair on the second level to do shooters What about the fm cafe and bar in the myer centre downstairs..

These were the best places to go. Does anyone know how I can get in contact with people that I used to hang out with at these places. Cherie Brown and Delain. Wall St Night Club the industry club. Came to life from I was the manager of Wall St for many years. I am working on a web site of all the great and Bad clubs in Brisbane over the last couple of decades.

Im after some date of when all these great places opened there doors but more importantly closed. For those that did not know or know him. Atila Hoth, manager of the post office amd many other over the last 20 years. If you know any actual dates of opening and closing of great venues.

Was it called Friday's??? Hey, I heard some terrible news today. The old site for Her Majestys is due for demolition!!!!!! I hear that that the Wintergarden is doing some major renovations and the Bar is to go!!! Anyone mention the Crash and burn?

Also, i remeber that Van Gogh's Earlobe spent time as the Capitol before becoming a strip joint. Saw The Paradise Motel there. I seem to remeber the punk scene getting moved about a bit too. Ever go past the treasury on a friday night and look up to the second floor balcony? Mind you this was in the early 70's. Anyone remember the name of the place. It would help with the book i am writing. Wow those were the days, what i can remember of them.

Then there was the National Hotel, the Bar on Queen Street and accross the road from that another club, can't remember it's name either. Please help, alzheimers is setting in. No aggro but a bloody great night. Wish we still had some of these places left instead of the boring plastic pubs that have taken over! I would very much like to organise a get together of all those who may have hung out at CLUB in Brisbane between the years In the seventies, whenever in Brisbane for a brief period, I worked at several different places which are no longer there.

In I worked in one of the first cocktail bars open to the general public where one didn't have to buy a meal in order to drink there. I've forgotten the name of the hotel, but I believe it was near the Zebra Hotel. Can anyone enlighten me? Another time, I worked in the bar of the Hibiscus Room on the top floor of Lennons hotel with it's magical view of the city.

I was also a few months at Blinkers Nite Club. Most of the customers were okay, but there were also some sleezy ones. The two European bosses were fantastic. Roundabout that time, I had a brief affair with the licencee of what I think was called the George Hotel, opposite Roma Street Station, which was eventually transformed into the 'The Trans'.

If my memory serves me right, when I went there with my daughter in , the bar on the second floor which I think was oblong was full of young sophisticates, and situated in the same place the licencee used to have his sleeping quarters.

Rooms were rented out to permanent borders and the only bar I remember was a long public bar almost covering the length of the downstairs floor. At 21, I worked as function hostess at the National Hotel. On Saturdays there were as many as five functions often weddings going on at the same time. Nowadays that's nothing, but not so back in Warren's bar was still going strong and Warren himself, with his black nail polish on long fingernails was quite a drawcard.

The club at the top of the suncorp building was called Images, New York building in the now queen street mall, had a club called wilsons before the myers center, there was a pub on Elizabeth street called the elizabeth Street bar which people used to call "white chairs", The vally had the Outpost next to the beat, the Love inn oppersite the now mustang bar, lots has change He passed Jan and rests in Nudgee Cemetery Brisbane. He had been lost to our large family for years and it appears his last days saw him down in his luck.

I have just gone online for the first time in 8 years. Morticias at the Orient hotel. Backstage at alliance, myself and many friends lived upstairs. Across the road at St Pauls Tavern Wastelands. The Roxy in Fort Valley. Jason or Turtle as he was known Andy etc. I have often wanted to see a reunion. The punks Suicidal Mike Damien etc so many so long ago.

Used to be at different venues around town once a month early 90's?? Oh, how I loved that sticky carpet at Mass!!! Does anyone have any photos of Images Nightclub from the 's? If so I'd love to get copies! I used to be a bouncer there on weekends. Great crowd, daggy music, fun times. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the nightclub that was inside the paddo tavern in the 80s.

I remember the Wintergarden, used to party there in the early 80s with the army guys and the girls I worked with at Chambers, Mcnab I worked there for 3 months then joined the army lol John Bell was my boss, the old whisky a go go boss.

I used to party at court jesters, court molester we called it lol.. I also went to the beat when it first opened and watched a caberet show where they dressed in costumes from the show cats, one of the dancers actually caught their wigs on fire the night I saw it, it was a cool club for straight girls, no men would hit on you lol..

I seen some great bitch fights between the gay men though, and the dancing was fierce, all this european high energy music I have so many memories from that time, brisbane was rocking back then. I actually met my daughters father at the roxy back in 86, the laser show was the highlight back then.

Hollywoods was cool too, 7am shutting time Can't remember the name of the club in the the Suncorp Building with the revolving floor I remember so many of the clubs mentioned during the periods and the cheap drinks and the wonderful times. Special mention for me is Tracks and the huge paw print on the dance floor, 20c rum and bourbon nights and the infamous go go dancers one of whom 20 years later married my best mate.

Does anyone remember a bloke played acoustic and sang loads irish folk stuff often at The Shamrock.. And what happened to that publican Sean Weelan. When Mary St wasn't working for me, I'd take a walk down to a block to Zanzibar grabing a kabab on the way Anyone else ever go there?

Heard a few mentions of Metropolis - under the Myer Centre. My fav touring band venue at the time. Does anyone remember The Daniel Bar? It used to be on the opposite side of Tracks nightclub. I think Morticias was also there for a while. I am talking mid 80's here. Would love to hear from someone who remembers either - I was only about 15 then, but god they were good times!!

The Move was in the Majestic Hotel in the late 80's. I can't remember their last name. There was also an awful night club called Reflections in the bottom of the Sheraton. I don't think anyone has mentioned that place yet. I have had so much fun reading these posts.

I had forgotten about most of these places and it bought back so many memories. Sigh, I remember drinking sharing many a jug of bourbon and Coke at Crash n Burn with my boyf circa - I also remember seeing Grinspoon there when they were starting out The boyf is long gone but I still have two memories of Crash N Burn: I remember the Mass well old lands office, now closed. I think it was also called club velcro for a short while?

The Babylon mentioned earlier, I think was spelled Babble-on unless I'm thinking of a different club all a bit blurry back then. Is anyone going to transfer all this info into visual format? A flow chart or something? That would be a great talking point at parties. Many years ago back in the 80s Dooleys used to be the Hacienda Hotel I also remember there was a gay bar downstairs from the Hacienda but I can't recall the name of it.

It was good for the first few drinks of the night. Manhattens was in the valley and is now the chinese furniture place across from the Roxy. The best and classiest club ever to exist in Brisbane was Images - 24th floor of the now Suncorp Building. Used to be the Top Of The State revolving restaurant, then turned into Images - with the blue bar, floor to ceiling windows over Brisbane.

DJ Tim played great funk mixed in with Hi Nrg, dance and pop tunes. There used to be a mini bus between Images and Sybils when they had a common owner - regulars would make the trek to the Dome room and back as some point in the night to mix up the vibe. Reflections in the Sheraton had some great moments too - proably depending on the company you kept. I remember hearing the Commodores Brick House for the first time and asking the DJ 10 times the name so I didn't forget it.

Wall Street - how slapped together was that - take out the cubicles in any medium sized city office add some lights, a DJ a bar - whella - again, good company helped. Regulars not really me mind you used to pride themselves on having a Wall Street gold keyring medallion with a dollar sign on it. The Beat has been there for ever, Sunny Side up with the funk, I did the first 4zzz live venue simulcast at a club in Bonapartes - can't remeber the name.

Transformers had a huge opening and massive effort on the apocalptic theme -they spent a fortune making that place look abandoned. DJ Mixing champs were there. A very short lived club in the Q st mall was called South of the Border - they served mexican food with the cover charge - they lasted about a weekend. Not a club as such, but a very underground venue for breakdancers, graffitti writers and hip hop djs was called the coffee shop no coffee was served at the base of the Suncorp blg.

Still a legitimate hangout, with music and dancing. Has anyone mentioned the alley cat in the laneway between the mall and Adelaide? DJ Cash Money was supposed to perform at the Treasury, but never turned up. Most of the old venues are now stip clubs or gone. Images was shut down by the fire department because it was too much of a risk - a lot of people were broken hearted by that decision.

Deketek - that's a rare one - way down past the valley on Adelaide street, almost near Bowen Hills roundabout. I have a photo from there with plenty of regulars from the other clubs mentioned - Michael Jordan, Katch, Angus. There was some meat market pubs at - Victoria Barracks and what was once the boot factory both near Lang Park.

Not a fan, but went there. Also a club at the Port Office Hotel? Hollywoods in Elizabeth street was the one club you could rely on to be open after the sun came up, when all other clubs were a memory.

Does anyone remember Hollywoods in Elizabeth St mid 80s which then became the Groove late 80s and us now some kind of comic shop? Hollywoods had no licence and was often subject to raids if they hadn't paid their dues to the right paper bag holders. And there was the strip joint Swizzles where the Myer Centre is now. And as someone has already mentioned, the magic Wall Street.

God I loved going there - of course you didn't do that until everything else was shut. The lift was always super crowded and stank of unknown aromas. Better not to know! Who would have believed back then that you would be allowed to drink alcohol outside while dining on the sidewalk Brisbane used to be such a rougho place for drinking. Remember Hemi in the beergarden at the port office.

And all shananigans that used to go on at the Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach beergardens at schoolies!! And there were 3 levels at the old Sybil's where they used to have the Brisbane Bullets in the club after home games in their hey day.

Wasn't the basement level for overs? The transcontinental is still there. I remember drinking at the bombshelter at the story bridge because it was the only place with Coopers on tap in the 80s. I remember walking from The Beat to Techno-Mad and over to Heaven the big white church back in the day GPO wasn't even born Back in the early to mid s, the City was where it was at. Valley was a place you went once a year - wasn't even on the radar.

They were all within walking distance. Then the stabbings and shootings came Brilliant times and memories. Some nights it was so rocking Then the 3am curfew around and that was the beginning of the end for this wondferful era. This was around the same time the Valley started to become more popular. The Britannia Inn was a brilliant night in the early 90's I along with half a dozen mates were the Darts team it was a part of the Peters resturant chain of Shingle Inn fame ,.

By the Valley had already long fallen into decline. Valley was so chilled back then, and a lot of fun. I remember a rave called 'BigLove' nextdoor at Rics, and all the dealers stodd out the back at the start and people queued up in an orderly fashion. There were no fights, no problems.

It was the buliding across the street. You're right about one thing though, the wall did have a black and white Manhattan skyline painted on it. Last I saw it, was about A victim of Fitzgerald inquiry. That place scared the hell out of me, because it was a fire-trap, and full of pretty bad MoFo's.

I didn't like Lexington Queen much. Hated the music, and wasn't Mediterranean enough to slick my hair back and wear black skivvies with fake gold. Plenty of great bands used to play at St pauls under it's numerous guises , and of course the Metropolis.

Once I played pool there, and broke the balls, only to watch in slow motion horror as the white ball sailed off the table, into the air, and down about 30 feet into a teeming crowd of dancers. Although this blog is now getting two years old, I will still comment as I think this blog still has a way to go. The pub was split in two to service passengers and people off the street.

There was also a place on Elizabeth st behind the Myer Centre which was a post-punk new wave type of club - very dark, lots of black lights and flouro paint. I remember it had a couple of name changes but stayed the same. It was a sort of Brisbane take on Stranded Strand Arcade, Sydney though without the same sophistication. Everyone seems to remember the New York Hotel at the top of Queen St but most people only seem to remember the the bar at the top of the antique elevator ie New York, New York.

A tiny underground bar where I met the Harlem Globetrotters one night - a sight you never forget! I was into the Brissie club scene in the mid to late 80's, but after coming back here after a number of years, it's hard to place where some of the clubs and bars were, it's changed so much!

I remember Wall St. Them were the days! I was a regular at the Wintergarden Tavern in the mid to late 80's which became Arizonas, then the Monkey Bar owned by some footballers and it is now O'Malley's. I remember nearly every club mentioned in this blog and have spent time in nearly every one of them. The 80's was an awesome time and I have opened a facebook group for the Wintergarden if anyone is interested in joining and maybe a reunion in September this year Would love to hear from anyone who frequented.

Ahhhh 80's clubbing in Brissie - I remember it well The Zoo where they had fab Drag Shows New York New York Alices Hard Rock Cafe Pips Nightlub never went there Those definitely were the days!! I am 33 and used to go to ,Hogies and City Rowers at least 2 times a week. I am talking around aprox. Does anyone remember John the guy that used to sell Roses for your "special" lady at and the Vic? On Saturday nights upstairs at Rowers Bfm used to broadcast live from the dancefloor with DJ Mikey Mars who is still on brisbane radio late at night somewhere.

I found a shaker from and the GIG that I stole years ago in boxes of stuff that i had in storage at my parents house as well as a Hogies hat and free drink cards for heaps of clubs in Bris in the mid to late 90's Bris was a different place,in all the years only got into 2 fights and pick pocketed once all at Mary Street niteclub!!

Made lots of friends and had lots of kisses and hugs from random chicks Thank you and i hope this evokes good memorys that read my semi pissed ramblings Enter the numbers you see on the left. Viva BrisVegas was formulated as a way for Conal Hanna to write off ten years of eating, drinking, bar-hopping and clubbing as a work expense.

Unfortunately, his accountant didn't buy it. VBV starts when work finishes, covering everything from fine dining and wine bars to rock concerts and greasy takeaways.
