Party at Pink Point

This niche restaurant serves burgers, hosts bingo nights and topless waiters all with an ultra camp vibe. More popular with hen parties than the pink parade, it is nonetheless a great night out.

A group of us decided to book at Beefcakes for a friends' bachelorette (like everyone else that night apparently). We, as a group of 9, were initially presented with a 6 seater table that clearly was not up to the task at hand. When we voiced our opinion we were told that the lounge area was also available (fantastic little... More

This is a fascinating combo of a restaurant, pub, theatre, 1950's diner! It's gay run and offers an excellent venue for gay and straight folk alike, welcoming all. The waiters are well built and generally considered sexy. The menu is WELL worth a read, with highly amusing meal descriptions decadently aimed at the gay clientele. They focus on burgers, and...

Beefcakes literally has something for everyone. If you're looking for a drink or fine food with entertainment this is the place to visit. The "pink palace" is something entirely unique, offering a variety of shows and drinks, along with the best burgers and "buns" in town. The waiters walk around shirtless and you take a rather pricy body shot off... More

A couple of friends and I went here for a girls' night out and it was just one of the most exciting evenings. The waiters just have so much enthusiasm and sassiness that if you're having a bad day then you'll immediately light up once you get here. Also the waiters are all shirtless so that's fun too :) After... More

Loud with screaming hen parties, half naked, not so bright good looking men. The burgers are not the best in town and menu is limited.

Decided last minute to come here instead of Cafe Manhattan. Arrived 2 minutes before the drag show started. And my - what a great time we had. Had a rocking good time! One queen could really sing - she was belting it out. Another could dance - really rocking it. Of course the finale was when the waiters took their... More

Popped in on return to our accommodation for a burger. The food and service were great and it had a raucous atmosphere that was building to the Friday night cabaret. It is very obvious were you get inside what the selling point is but it was also full of mixed parties all having fun.

Highly recommend bingo on a Tuesday night. Heaps of fun and great burgers. Wish the bingo was a little bit longer but such a fun evening.
