Mink
First published on . Updated on 22 Jun 2012.

From the team that brought you Filter and The Royal Room – they’re clearly on to something of a winner, right? – the plush new trendsetters’ and jetsetters’ nightspot Mink occupies the space previously inhabited by Stereolab. It’s accessed through the rear exit of The Royal Room, but you’ll have to step outside to use the bag drop-off. While there’s no cover charge for entry into The Royal Room, it’s $28 for entry to Mink.

Once you’ve made your way through the sharply dressed throng, you’ll find the swanky hedonists’ haven bordered by cushy private booths (table reservations required), with more spacious standing room towards the back, as well as tables and dance podiums. With all the extra furniture that’s been added – on top of a substantially sized in-crowd – dancing space can get pretty minimal.

There’s a short catwalk roped off for ‘special dancers’, and the music selection won’t present a big challenge for the vodka- and champagne-slugging clientele; while initially veering towards the chart-friendlier end of current club playlists, there’s a welcome injection of classic clubland fodder as we enter the wee small hours which never gets as elitist as the super-wealthy MO explicitly laid out in the club’s branding.

On special DJ nights, a string of top-notch producers has been promised for upcoming parties, while ‘over-the-top theme nights’ include Weird and Wonderful, featuring pole dancers, go-go dancers, live saxophonists, violinists and vocalists. In time, this could become a major competitor for the likes of Avalon and Pangaea.

Cover charge: $28 (incl one drink); single drinks $12-$35; bottles $128-$3,890; table reservations $500-$1,500.
