Brisbane is one of Australia’s fastest-growing cities, with a vibrant pub and club scene, and heaps of great restaurants, roof-top bars and laneway cafes. Within the city there are several different areas, each with their own vibe. Check out the CBD for iconic pubs like The Port Office Hotel, head over to New Farm for upscale river-front cafes and lounge bars, or get your cultural fix in West End where you can eat your way around the world and hop from craft beer bar, whiskey bar, tiki bar to cocktail bar, all within a few minutes walk. When the sun goes down, Fortitude Valley is where it’s at; jam-packed with rooftop bars, clubs, bars and late night eating options.
If you’re looking to escape the Queensland heat, head to South Bank Parklands where you will find Australia’s only man-made, inner-city beach and lagoon pool, or for something a little more grown up, check out Soleil Pool Bar at South Bank – yes a rooftop bar with a pool and DJ.
