Whether you like it or not, the summer has properly set in and we all feel it alright! Instead of shrivelling up at home in the heat, we've rounded up some bars with games for when you wanna do more than just sit around and hydrate. Pinball, trivia, giant jenga or beer pong, you name it. These Brisbane bars have got their drinking game on while they provide you with your sweet summer relief!

Designed to get folks off their devices and sucked into the moment, the concept of Oche delivers what the team calls an 'analogue social experiment' along with a banging' drinks menu. Oche brings a high tech, electronic twist to the old school pub game in its action-packed, two-storey establishment. So ready your throwing arm, step up to the Oche, and play darts like you've never played before!

Prefer to kick on (or off) your night by knocking back cocktails over giant jenga? The newly transformed Ivory Tusk has all that and more! This bright pastel venue is now all for the Palm Springs vibes, complete with spaces for dancing, dining, cocktail drinking and even for Rockaoke. Drunk giant Jenga plus karaoke anyone?


Come for drinks and stay for gaming relics from decades past. Known by punters of all ages for being Brisbane’s first classic arcade game bar, this one’s a classic and ticks all the boxes for good old fashioned fun!


Hidden deep in the depths of Woolloongabba's historic Moreton Rubber building is an 80s style, retro arcade bar. Venture into this character-filled establishment and let your inner child resurface at the pinball machines before battling it out at the Space invaders downstairs while you indulge in some dagwood dogs.
