The Low Down


Fun Fact: The Joynt is by the same group behind Gold Coast fave Jilly's. This will be evident in a) the older, sport-coat-wearin dudes, and b) the women who love them.

When to Go: Despite the size, the layout can seem a little claustrophobic when crowded. Opt for a weeknight---but later, say after 10, as it's not really an after-work spot.

Where to Sit: The front room is actually the more comfortable space, but for some serious people watching secure one of the tables surrounding the dance floor.

Know Before You Go: Weekends get pretty busy, and a cover can crop up.
