The winds of change..
Brisbane is like a fine bottle of wine; over time the quality improves, and each sip is greatly appreciated. Our city is continually evolving and maturing, producing breathtaking venues that never cease to amaze us. If it's not an entirely new concept, it's a renovation or re-brand. Let's just say, if Bris were a TV series it would either be Packed to the Rafters or Keeping Up With The Kardashians - wouldn't you agree? No month is the same in this town and we wouldn't have it any other way!
The saucy new menu has arrived [HOT HOT HOT]
Brewhouse has done it again! Not only are they serving up some of Queensland’s best brews, they’ve got a new menu too! Whether you’re dining alone or together, the new menu is sure to satisfy.
When in Brisbane..
Whether you love sipping on coffee or booze or, coffee mixed into booze, we've got the perfect hit just for you. Let your taste buds run wild this week as we try new menus, cocktails and heck, we'll even give Cuban cigars a crack. Boring is not a word Brisbane is familiar with. If you don't want to be a (boring) Betty this August, jump on the FUN train with us. First stop.. an espresso martini fest!
Mammoth Meals From Tusk Til Dawn
Welcome to the ice age baby. The majestic woolly mammoth may have not have survived it, but their favourite bar sure did. I give you the Woolly Mammoth Alehouse! As wickedly epic as the mammoth itself, this alehouse knows there’s nothing better than a frostbitten glass to keep your beer cold as ice, ice, baby! With the ability to transform any beer from an 8 to a 10, the Woolly Mammoth is the place you never knew you needed.
It must be love..
It's true what they say; love comes in all shapes and forms. Our greatest love is food (obviously) but, we also love being preened & pampered, we love giving our support to a good cause, we love music, socialising and trying new things and, most of all, we love LOVE. Whether your heart beats faster for another human or, a delicious bubbly beverage gives you the warm and fuzzies, we bet you'll find something lovely to do with someone you love in Brisbane over the next few weeks. Why not get the blood pumping at these exciting events...
Friday Night Lights & Drinks
If there are three things that all Australians love with every fibre of their body, it’s live sport, beer, and good food. With the wide world of sports hitting our screens this season, be sure not to miss out on the FIFA World Cup, State of Origin, NRL, and AFL, the question of where to watch this year’s big games in Brisbane is a hard choice to make yet again. Before you commit yourself to another year on the couch with a bag of Doritos, you may want to venture out of your comfort zone and check out some of the coolest spots to catch up on some genuine sports entertainment.
This week we're turning Greek, Pan-Asian, Mexican and everything else in between (including obese) with the wide range of upcoming festivals, openings and events that'll leave us cultured AF. Settle in to a traditional 3 course dinner or cruise the streets of South Bank in search of burgers dripping with flavour - whatever you're up for we promise it'll satisfy those taste buds.
And just like that, another month is gone (holy cow). Brisbane, you've put on quite a show for the first half of the year and we have no doubt you'll continue to #wow us over the next 6 months. Forget dry July, mid-year diets and winter hibernation, there are mouth-watering espresso martinis to drink, along with carb-loaded meals waiting to be eaten and inspiring exhibits to wander through!
Cocktails; Need we say more?
Cocktail lovers rejoice! Post-work and sunny afternoon drinks just got a whole lot better with a number of Brisbane's favourite bars updating their cocktail menus. Yep, that's right - there are new, fresh AF beverages out there just waiting to tickle our taste buds, one sip at a time. So, whether you're a lover of dark rum or prefer your booze to taste like unicorns, we listed a few local watering holes who are sporting new cocktail menus this season. If you hadn't already guessed it, hibernation is a total no-go for us this Winter (and it should be for you too!).
Sip Sip Hooray
Doo-Bop Jazz Bar opened its doors to Brisbane in 2017, bringing with it an electric sound of new age jazz and a selection of soulful crooners to it’s stage.
The venue has been buzzing with a variety of jazz musicians ranging from local to international acts. Now reaching its first birthday, the musical proprietor is ready to celebrate with the very best of jazz and soul by hosting a 12-hour live long jazz session featuring some of the best and brightest Brisbane has to offer on Friday 22nd June.
Go on, get out there
Lady birds and gentle pigeons, listen up. It's time to round up the flock and get ready for a jam-packed schedule this weekend, cause we're doing it all!

If you're thinking of staying in, think again. There's too much to see and do so, spread those wings and get ready to soar around the city with us..
