When the Graffitti Club opened on Johnston St in 2008, I didn’t quite know what to think of it. It looked like it was deliberately designed to appear suburban and bogan, and I wondered what audience the owners were trying to attract. It soon changed its name to the Johnston Club and not long after began attracting a troublesome bogan crowd, which answered my question.
It never seemed to work and has been closed for months. The mismanagement of the club matched that of the kebab shop next door (I believe the same owner was responsible). I was walking by the other day and the windows were open to reveal that the club is being remodelled into a tiki bar.
