Story Bridge Hotel is an iconic, family owned since 1967 Brisbane hotel situated right underneath the Story Bridge. With 5 bars, 4 dining areas, gaming lounge, TAB, detached bottle shop and 9 function spaces they have something for everyone.

Shelter Bar

Having started life out as a remnant bomb shelter, the Story Bridge Hotel’s aptly named Shelter Bar was always going to have a powerful impact. For decades, the Shelter Bar has held a special place in Brisbane’s pub scene and has been graced with an aesthetic overhaul which leaves other venues way back in its wake. The Shelter Bar is now a deluxe indoor and outdoor venue where beer, wine and cocktails are a plenty, and fine food lure vibrant crowds. Nestled right beneath the Story Bridge you can move outside for sunshine or stars at night or inside to watch a big game. At the Shelter Bar you can dine in on a Sopressa Pizza, Pork Knuckle Tacos, a Black Angus Rump or Barcoo Rib Fillet. This is not just any old pub grub. After work live music between 5pm and 9pm is now a staple. Exceptional DJs take control of the dance floor every Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday afternoons.

The open barbeque-style tables invite companionship and conversation, and the bar is stocked with first class local, craft and international beers.
