On the rocks - The Bank nightclub

The Bank Nightclub From traditional beginnings, a central Southport bank on the Gold Coast has been reincarnated as a local nightspot, aptly retaining its former designation as 'The Bank'.

In an extensive refurbishment process, both the interior and exterior of The Bank Nightclub were treated to new paint systems. The exterior paint specification included a primer coat of Resene Quick Dry acrylic primer undercoat, followed by a coloured basecoat of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic, and two topcoats of Resene Enamacryl Metallic tinted to Resene Blast Grey 3 for distinctive street appeal.

Not to be outdone by the shimmering outer image, the interior paint system required the application of a combination of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic, Resene Enamacryl Metallic and Resene Paint Effects Medium. With clever use of colour, special effects via Resene Paint Effects and Metallics and vibrating upbeat music, the old bank now collects money across the bar.
