Mr & Mrs G Riverbar is the perfect combination of classy and fun. Located in Brisbane’s CBD, Mr & Mrs G provides a killer view as it looks over the Brisbane River.

Beer Gardens are like super cool, yeah? Well this particular beer garden is actually twice as cool because it sits in the heart of South Bank, overlooking the Brisbane River and South Bank Beach – making it a beach side bar as well. This place was made for those warm and beautiful summer nights with your friends. With heaps of hanging plants, fresh open space and a beautiful view of the water and the city, South Bank Beer Garden is where you and your friends need to be this summer! With happy hour Monday to Friday between 4 – 6pm, it’s also the perfect after work destination for those of you in the area.

South Beach Social

There’s nothing that screams summer more than heading to the beach, attempting to get a tan, finding sand in the most unusual of places and swallowing way too much salt water. After a long beach day, you’re definitely going to need a refresher! And the South Beach Social is the perfect place to do so. Obviously don’t rock up in your bikini and flip flops, but we recommend you check this place out after a long summers day or after you’ve spent the day at Brisbane’s Street’s Beach, as it’s just across the road. They offer a great beer and wine list offering drinks that are both local and international, their stand out however is their cocktail list, jam packed with cocktails inspired by the beach – tropical AF!
