There are a number of carparks in Fortitude Valley but we recommend McWirthers on Warner Street which is right next to our venue!


If you wish to safely catch a cab you can do so at Ann Street near Kathmandu.  With that said, you’re probably better off catching an Uber to and from the event.

Weapons are highly discouraged at our events, unless made out of weaker materials (foam, cardboard) and look non threatening, (guns and swords are generally a no-go, compared to staffs and wands). Our policy is similar to many cosplay conventions although we tend to be a bit stricter, due to the darker environment, people dancing and alcohol.
