Best Bars in Brisbane

Surprisingly good new Brisbane’s bar The Gresham can boast an extraordinary collection of fantastic whiskey cocktails, pure scotches, rums, and excellent whiskeys. If you add their decent weekday menu of respectful breakfast snacks and their virtuoso-barista Ryan Goody, this is really a place which should be on your ‘must see’ list. Come here to taste whiskeys stocked. Nowhere else in the whole Australian continent you will find such a place.

Laneway is an inevitable and widely known drinking destination in Brisbane. It is a bar perfect for enjoying a bit of contemporary and classical music while you are sipping one of their excellent award-winning wines. There is a wide choice of tasty cocktails, beers, and ciders too. Enjoy cosmopolitan bar culture in this intimate and unique place far away from the hustle. Oh, I have almost forgotten to mention their gourmet bar food! Mustn’t miss!

You should not pass up a night without up-and-coming acts and live music in Bearded Lady. With all walls covered in well-made graffiti, creative cocktails, and good beer, we can just say that this place is maybe the coolest bar on the whole West End. Well, it looks like to me that it is a hit with the locals, and they always know the best. Keep in mind that this bar is BYO food place!

  • Are you looking for an epic cellar with the stunning river views, an impressive cocktail list, and a good selection of beer? Well, it seems that Madame Wu is the perfect place for you. Honestly, this place is not a brainier for a regular night out with your buddies. It is the bar for real lovers and connoisseurs of Asian cuisine. If we can say that there is a space with top Asian specialties in Brisbane, this is that place.

It was a gentlemen’s club, but now it is the venue with live blues and country music every other night. Come here and enjoy whiskey apple juice, their house specialty. They won ‘Bar of Year’ at the Australian Gourmet Traveler Awards in 2014 with a big reason. Come with friends and check out! Additionally, you can dance on their large dance floor. Be prepared that their high-quality drinks are not cheap, but they are absolutely worth of money.

After reaching 11th floor you will fall in love with the view and sophisticated decor. Eleven’s food is excellent and it’s a perfect spot for a group of friends who want to spend time together chatting and drinking “on top of the world”.

After sightseeing Brisbane City, you should go to this ultimate Italian dining for Italian tapas and a little drink with your small group of friends. Don’t miss to try remarkable Italian wine or one of nine types of Negroni cocktails on offer. Merely sit at the bar, pick a glass of wine and order a plate of sliced prosciutto. You won’t regret! All recommendations for their perfect ‘aperitivo hour’ from all my heart!

Brooklyn Standard is a place where you can find great live music 6 days a week. Their fully American menu, atmosphere and decor might make you wonder which country you are actually located.
