Mermaid Beach Tavern Review


Review By Jenna Boister

Mermaid Tav - as the locals like to call it - has become notorious for its Friday night and Sunday arvo sessions. Living close by, I have visited this bar on numerous occasions (not all of which I can remember, but that's a different story!). What I can tell you is that, despite these being their two busiest nights, there is huge potential for fun to be had here every night of the week.

This venue is clearly focused on keeping their patrons entertained with UFC nights, awesome competitions, poker and trivia nights, karaoke, live bands, DJ's, bikini waitresses, themed parties such as 'Aussie' and 'Melbourne Cup' days, pool tables and live comedy. There's no need to check their calendar of events, you can head down to Mermaid Tav and feel safe in knowing there will be some kind of entertainment, promotion or event on.

This bar occupies two levels and a variety of areas to dance, chill, drink, have fun and enjoy the endless entertainment. The downstairs bar area is low-key with makeshift kegs as tables, XXX's posters on the walls and modest tables and chairs. It's the place to head to if you want to have a go at the pokies, belt out your favourite karaoke tune, try your hand at the $25 000 poker prize pool or access the outside beer garden. If you're after something more exciting, head upstairs where you'll come to the livelier, more stylish part of Mermaid Tav. There's the same simplistic decor from downstairs, but they've classed it up with partial wooden flooring, a skylight, leather sofas and stone detail along the bar. With live music and DJ's, this is where most of the partying happens!

This place attracts a good-looking crowd; and it's generally an equal mix of men and women. It's where the beautiful people between the ages of 20-35 go to before heading out for a big night on the town; or where they come to chill if they don't want to have a big one. What I like about Mermaid Tav is that there are all types of people here. You'll get a girl dressed up to the nines, standing next to a guy wearing thongs. Like any place filled with beautiful women and steroid-fuelled men, there is a slight pretentiousness about the place, but it's so relaxed that nobody really notices.

You can be as serious, snobby, relaxed or moronic as you like here. Casual or classy, suit or surfer - either way this place has an inviting atmosphere for whoever you are. The average schooner of beer will set you back about $5.40 and RTD's roughly $10. They have parking, but it's close to public transport, and there is also a free courtesy bus which does pick-ups between Surfers Paradise and Burleigh; so there's no excuse for drinking and driving!
