Keen to escape the day-to-day monotony of your life with a night of useless facts and bulk drinks? Well, strap your smart person pants on gang, we’ve found just the thing.
Not only is trivia generally a laugh a minute, it’s also pretty cheap to participate and you get to think of a hilariously inappropriate name for your team. Here are eight local spots to test your knowledge (from north to south).
It’s one of the best nights in town with trivia lovers flocking from all over the Coast to take out the top prize. The fun starts at 7pm on Wednesday’s with plenty of inappropriate questions, excessive beers and loads of laughs. Entry is free but teams are a maximum of six people and bookings are a must.
Where: 50B Nerang Street, Southport
Mermaid Beach Bowls Club
The Mermaid Beach Bowls Club is always a good time and never more so than Thursday nights. From 7pm you and your squad can get involved in the festivities and compete for cash prizes and drink vouchers while downing some fish and chips and a shandy or two. Happy days.
Where: 9 Markeri Street, Mermaid Beach
Your favourite pizza and pint haunt hosts trivia from 7pm every Tuesday night. There’s $15 pizzas and $5 beer + wine to indulge in, so head down for an affordable night out with your people (only the smart ones though). It’s $15 entry per team and you might just take home the $50 voucher.
Where: 28 Chairlift Ave, Nobbys Beach
Wednesday night is the one at Justin Lane where you can join in the good times for just $1 per person. You’ll find yourself upstairs in the event space, surrounded by mouth watering pizzas and a cocktail or three no doubt. Every entry donation goes into the jackpot jar with a question asked at the end of the night to see who takes home the cash. You gotta be in it to win it.
Where: 1708—1710 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads
It’s the intimate Palmy hangout loved for live music, creative cocktails and the most delicious of Spanish share plates. But did you know the girls also run trivia on the last Thursday of every month. There’s always a drink and dinner special on, so head down for a guaranteed good time.

It’s a Tuesday night good time at Club Talle from 6.30pm. Enjoy ocean views, dinner specials and the chance to win cash money if you come first, second or seventh (find out why, when you get there). Bookings are essential and we recommend signing up as a member to get discounted drinks too!
Where: 1505 Gold Coast Hwy, Palm Beach
Fame Trivia is on every Thursday night in the main bar from 7pm at everyone’s favourite RSL club.

Entry is free friends.
