Event Review - Platinum on the Gold Coast

Author: The Captain
Friday, September 3, 2004
Out of the box, a new door a jar. Crafty lighting at this funky new bar.

Yes it's me THE CAPTAIN here. NO Scuba Steve, off on another mission, OPERATION "Dirty Weekend", doing a bit of diving.

On Saturday the 7th o9f August a new Super Club opened up in Broardbeach here on the Gold Coast called 'Platinum'.

Down the stairs on a Red Carpet Ride, through the Big Black doors with pupils open wide. It fits a lot, packed in fact. Room for a couple of midgets, a few loose cannons, a fishnet lass, less than a 1000. 3000 Throw the door on opening night. This bar would give even Tyson a run for an ear, or should I say beer with Platinum's under cut of most local clubs drink prices. NO Spirits over $7 and local bottle beers $5.

This sound system is MAGIC!

Tony Harvey is the main resident D.J. His style funky house with a commercial feel, dabbling in the different from time to time. Juvenilles are also a main play, with a bit of break beats, inside track to house and remix RNB these young chaps I would certainly keep an ear out for in the future.

For now Platinum is open Thursday through Saturday nights to 5am with plans to open on Sunday for the hardcore Techno heads.

*THURSDAY nights has local heros BLUFFSTA and BIG BOYD playing funky house with tribal back beats.
*FRIDAY nights is for all you YO YO YO's with BUSTER and friends playing all your 'I've drunk too much and now I'm a shake my ass skank' RNB favorite radio

*SATURDAY night is for all the Groovers & Movers, as Harvey and the Juvenilles mix you up a creation of sound like a bartender with flair. Stick an umbrella in it and we'll call it 'The Vacation'. So book yourself in for a Sunday morning foot massage.
