633 Ann, formerly known as The Mustang Bar, is currently undergoing a refurbishment to coincide with the club’s launch early next month.
“The name change decision is to give the club more of an identity than what it is, and where we are,” explains 633’s Marketing and Entertainment Manager, Rolando De Leon. “We are calling it the street address so that the broad range of entertainment that we'll be hosting is the key to knowing what we are all about.”
This new range of musical entertainment will be kicked off when the club launches February 2 with Diafrix performing live. But that's only the tip of what the night will have to offer punters.
“We will introduce the public to the stripped back internal refurbishment of 633 Ann. We will be introducing a new drinks list with feature cocktails. The pool tables will still be here but we've moved them into a more comfortable lounge area. And seeing Diafrix live is a freak show performance.”
One of 633’s major calling cards will be offering the local scene a venue for free music.
“633 Ann will be hosting a broad range of weekly entertainment like rock, hip hop, R&B, dance music, heavy metal nights too. We're not trying to give the place a new identity, just provide great free music. We're really strong on not changing the Saturday night vibe.”
And so they shouldn't. The Mustang Bar had a strong local scene that 633 Ann is trying to complement, not change.
“We're just opening it up a bit more. Everything needs a lift every now and then. Mustang has been strong in the last ten years and we want to see it continue to be strong for the next ten years. 633 Ann is not aiming for a different clientele, we're just trying to bring more [punters] in. We're trying to tell the rest of Brisbane that we do some cool things here so come check it out.”
633 Ann launch with Diafrix on Saturday Feb 2. Free entry.
