Dracula's is Australia's longest running and most successful dinner...

Dracula's is Australia's longest running and most successful dinner theatre. A total night of entertainment combining burlesque, contemporary music, comedy and quality dining, all in the one incredible venue. From that first tentative step inside, you and your party are transported to an underworld of gothic splendour. Ride the famous ghost train into the Theatre of the Vampyre. Explore the multi level castle and be captivated by the intense atmosphere. Animated creatures as well as original and rare horror collectables adorn the entire venue. Sample unique cocktails in the Van Helsing cocktail bar. A quality three course dinner is followed by the main event, Dracula's two hour live production featuring some of Australia's most talented performers. The productions change annually and continue to 'wow' audiences with the latest audio and visual special effects and a menu that is to die for! For over 30 years, multi award wining Dracula's has wined, dined and horrified over 3,000,000 guests from all over the world. Dracula's has always been and continues to be produced, written and directed by the Newman Family. An all Australian entertainment success story that is truly immortal.

My girlfriend and I were here last night with my mum for her birthday. My mum already had seen this particular show and loved it and wanted to go again because she said it was fantastic. She was right! The venue itself was insane! So cleverly designed and definitely what you expect in Dracula's lair. The staff that met you... More

Dracula's is a must place to visit when you go to the Gold Coast. You might think it is expensive but worthwhile for the food and fun. The people that work there are very funny and throw them selves into their work. The show itself is very very good and the food is (out of this world.) (a pun.) Don't... More

This was my 3rd visit to Draculas and once again I had a wonderful experience. A fun night filled with debauchery, frivolity and laughter. Awesome staff with yummy food. Don't miss out on going here if you're staying at the Gold Coast.

Totally committed to its name, the decor inside and out was very well thought of. I had read some of the previous reviews and was dubious BUT I had no need to be. It's a fun, fun, night out. If you want 5-star dining, it won't be but the food was great and the entertainment was outstanding. This particular 'retro'... More

We enjoyed everything until we were seated.we were told because we had Groupon bookings we get the worst seating.however they did change us to a better table.Come on Draculas hire some good looking vampires that wear less like your girls.As for the meal it was so basic and unappealing. An expensive experience. Thankfully the show was fun

The 70's Retro theme was very entertaining, but the venue is rather loud. The venue caters to a wide range of age groups (18 and over) but not suitable for prudish people. The 3 course meal was much better than we anticipated and the drinks were not overly priced.
