Many a summertime dream involves splashing around, lazing about in a cabana or on a daybed, grabbing a few drinks and feeling mighty relaxed. All of the above isn't normally something that a Brisbanite can do in the middle of Fortitude Valley though — let alone in a venue made out of shipping containers. But come Wednesday, January 1, 2020, it will be. That's when the X Cargo Pool Club starts operating for two months of levelled-up fun, launching on its opening date and then running from Friday–Sunday each week afterwards until February 28.

Yes, the McLachlan Street spot is genuinely setting up a pool for two months — and turning it into a lush affair. Only 65 people will be given access at any one time and, taking over X Cargo's Eats Alley, the temporary body of water will also come with a private bar with its own exclusive menu, a private DJ booth, and private change rooms and toilets.

If you're keen to soak and sip away a day or several, you'll need to either gather the gang and book one of the five cabanas — they accommodate up to eight people each — or nab yourself one of the 12 daybeds. For those going the cabana route, you'll pay $500 total for three hours, with bookings available at  11am, 2pm and 5pm. You'll also get bottle service, your own waiter, towel service and sun packs that include sunscreen.

Happy to laze about on a sunbed between dips? That'll cost you $50 per person for two hours (with slots available from 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm), and also covers towel service.

Launch tickets are on sale now, with other bookings available by emailing the venue. Plus, if you're feeling super flush and festive, you and 65 of your mates can hire out the whole Pool Club as well.
