Getting To The Zoo


The Zoo Map

For the uninitiated, The Zoo is Brisbanes' most long standing live music venue/nightclub.

We cater to the more independant end of the musical spectrum, and are open Wednesdays - Saturdays, and some Sundays. In any week you could see anything from beats, hip hop, jazz, rock, and pop to acoustic, folk, dub and reggae.

Public Transport:
Depending on which direction you are coming from, there are many public transport options to The Zoo.

By Train:
Take the train to Fortitude Valley Station. Walk 50m to Wickham Street, take either Brunswick Street Mall or Warner Street and walk until you reach Ann Street, which runs parallel to Wickham Street. We are located at 711 Ann St, which is directly across the lights from Kathmandu store and the Warner Street Carpark.

By Bus:
If you are coming from the CBD you can take several buses that will pass through Fortitude Valley and are walking distance from The Zoo.

Bus stops located closest to The Zoo are 203 / 204 / 205 (Warner St) and 211 / 202/ 207 / 210 (Brunswick St) and 228/ 229 (Wickham St).
