Riverside nightlife, Brisbane

From classic watering holes on every second corner to sophisticated bars with where you can lie back and listen to music that never stops – our pubs, bars and live-music venues are the perfect meeting places. Our urban villages entice, with a range of intimate nightspots and live music. In particular, West End and Fortitude Valley are perfect to see emerging bands, enjoy live indie-rock, get up close to national and international acts or groove to innovative jazz bands. 


Australian Gourmet Traveller has singled out Brisbane's whisky saloon Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall as the best bar in the country.

Perfect for the balmy Brisbane climate, the outdoor space situated on top of the Tryp Hotel has never-ending views and is fast-becoming the place-to-be-seen.

Tucked away on Gresham Lane off Creek St in The City, Red Hook serves up mouth-watering New York fare.
