A mysterious green door awaits you on Brunswick Street. Embellished with an old-fashioned brass door knocker, once you step through this door you’ll be transported into a lamp-lit, tropical-themed bar. On the menu is a mix of bespoke cocktails and boutique wines, so it’s the best new bar in Brisbane to visit to try something new after a long day in the office.

Alice Bar

If there’s one thing we love, it’s a sneaky little laneway bar. So we’re suitably thrilled to add the brand new Alice Bar to our rotation of inner-city haunts! Hidden down an alleyway opposite the Hilton Hotel on Elizabeth Street, Alice is an eighties-inspired rock’n’roll bar that boasts more than 150 bottles of bourbon. If you prefer a different spirit, you’ll find a generous mix of gins, rums, whiskies and vodka on the shelf at this new bar in Brisbane.

Why not make plans to meet for a martini? Impress the group chat by making a date to visit the best new bar in Brisbane for a two-sip martini at this intimate new bar. Perfect for date night, Midtown is a cosy, 40-seater bar in the thriving foodie hub of Fish Lane. Split into three distinct areas (Uptown, Midtown and Downtown), guests can opt for a casual, private or alfresco experience when they visit this supper club for a classic cocktail and a bite to eat. When it comes to the menu, you’re in safe hands. Midtown is operated by the brilliant duo behind One Fish Two Fish, so expect to nibble on dishes with Spanish, Italian and Balkan influence.

Parched Brewing has had a makeover! The Brew Baron Beer Company are the new Aussie family behind the revamped space on Montague Road in West End. With plenty of beermaking experience under their belt, you won’t be disappointed when you drop in to visit the Baron for a refreshingly frosty beer. The menu offers a hearty spread of brewpub classics, with a few fun surprises, like the “birramisu pie” (which may sound like a dessert, but is in fact a braised, beef cheek pie served with mash and greens). The menu also offers options for gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian diets.

Sunsets Rooftop

 The newest rooftop bar on the Brisbane scene, Sunsets Rooftop lives up to its name with an incredible vantage point over Kangaroo Point. Opening just in time for spring and the warmer months to arrive, Sunsets’ aesthetic is inspired by the vibrant and sun-kissed climate of Queensland, presented in the style of a desert oasis, where warm breezes meet refreshing cocktails to create a rooftop paradise. With a menu paying homage to the diverse culinary traditions found in tropical regions around the world, Sunsets manages to make this multicultural attitude feel distinctly Brisbane… and we’re oh so here for it. See you there for sundowners this spring!

Antico Bar

The talented crew behind some of our favourite Brisbane bars, Death & Taxes and Dr Gimlette, have just raised the stakes on the sipping scene with their brand new venture; Antico Bar. This stunning Italian-inspired, three-level cocktail bar is housed within the CBD’s Burnett Lane (the oldest lane in Brisbane, that once served as an exercise yard for prisoners!), and is set to become one of the best hidden gems in the city. The exposed brick, sunken lounge and sparkling arch back bar set the mood for a date night, catch up or a cosy spot to unwind after a long day at the desk.

Touted as the ultimate destination for wine enthusiasts, the Reserve Wine Bar is The Emporium’s newest inhabitant. With an extensive wine list of over 3000 wines to choose from, the sommeliers are at hand to ensure a memorable experience with personalised recommendations. Of course, there’s also a Coravin system in place, so that you can try wines by the glass that are usually only available by the bottle. And if that weren’t enough to draw you into this new Brisbane bar, you can also utilise their ‘try before you buy’ concept, where you can enjoy a glass (or just a taste test) before purchasing a bottle to take home.
