Sportsman Hotel Is Calling All Cowboys This Ekka Holiday Eve


Brisbane’s Sportsman Hotel will host two special events this Tuesday night to celebrate Ekka holiday eve.

The cowboys have come to town so that must mean it’s Ekka time! The next day’s a public holiday so the annual Cowboyz-themed men’s only dance party is back at Sporties this Tuesday night (August 15).

Join KLM from 9pm in the downstairs stables at the Sportsman Hotel in Spring Hill as ranch-hands puts on their western shirts, cowboy hats and boots to dance the night away with their fellow countrymen.

With KLM’s signature lighting and enhanced sound, DJs neddEbear, Les Smith and djmikeyb will reign behind the decks and keep your wrangler butts moving and grooving until the wee hours. Entry to the party is $10, with a $5 discount for BrisBears and BootCo members with membership ID.

Meanwhile, in the venue’s Lounge bar on Tuesday evening, food will be available from 5:30pm before resident drag stars Gayleen Tuckwood, Alexis Diamond and Mandy Moobs take to the stage to perform their special Ekka show “HAAAAAAAYYYYY!” at 10.30pm, 12 and 1am that evening. Drink service will continue right through until 5am.

Sportsman Hotel is at 130 Leichhardt St in Spring Hill. For more details, visit the Sportsman Hotel website or the venue’s Facebook page.
