All Good Things Must Come To An End


You only have 10 weeks left for one last taste of' ‘The Cock’ and one last dance in the Dungeon fondly known as The TBC Club.

It’s the end of an era. After 5 magical years of treating Brisbane revellers to a booze-soaked party ship, the decision has been made to drop an anchor on a very special chapter in Brisbane nightlife at the end of 2019.

“We’ve had a great run at The Flying Cock. Our lease was up, and we decided not to renew. We feel the timing is right for a change, and we want to send the venue out with a bang. Considering our original plan was to open and close the venue within a couple of years, it’s been a privilege to be part of a special moment in Fortitude Valley history for the five plus years we have.
We hope to see a lot of old faces rolling through for a few last hurrah’s over the next 10 weeks. We know of at least a few punters who have married partners they met at The Cock, so whether you’re single, attached, or even uncertain, we encourage you to roll through for a few.
We love The Valley, and we’ll be back.”
— David Flynn - Co-Owner | The Flying Cock

But in death, there is life.

We’ll be kicking off a new decade with plans for a new Valley venue in 2020. Details are under-wraps for now, but rest assured you’ll be hearing all about it next year.

‘til death do we party.

Here’s how you can savour these last few months;


15 NOVEMBER: DONE: END OF SEMESTER PARTY. Students need to pencil this one in and assemble at The Flying Cock for a party celebrating the end of the academic grind. Free entry all night and VIP cards for all students for Very Important Perks.


30 NOVEMBER: Long-serving house band Birdman Randy play out their penultimate show. There will be cheers. There will be tears. There will be plenty of singing along.
