Where is the best pick up bar in Brisbane?


Some pubs and clubs in Brisbane – you can be certain you’re guaranteed to get lucky.

These probably aren’t the classiest venues around, but if you’re searching for one thing in particular… that’s your destination.

So leave your tips – where’s the best bar for singles in Brisbane?


  1. Has anyone tried online chat rooms? I find they are a great place to meet a variety of people from all backgrounds. And if you’re new to a particular area and don’t know anyone, chat rooms are a good place to make connections.

  2. I think it is just bras in general….oh sorry I meant bars :)
    These days it is ridiculously easy to pick up if thats what you want….personally I love a man to make a bit more of an effort….but hey Im worth it

  3. In brisvagus for weekend. Got cloud land as recommended by this blog. Had a couple of drinks in flash apartment went to CLAND bout 9.30pm . Super hot wild chicks everywhere. 30 mins later me and my mate had picked up and where back at the pad. . . U know the rest five hours long. Cloud land SMOKEN! ! !

  4. I was always a regular customer in Cloudland. My friends and I hang out a lot in here especially on Fridays. I was never the type who’d dare do that but it’s a cool place to get cozy.

  5. I’m an ex-cab driver and don’t go to clubs and pubs much. Not much of a drinker.

    I’ve had a few girls from the Family ask me inside for 1 night stands, one I couldn’t refuse was a 3-some with 2 hot 18-20 year olds on E’s. I didn’t make much money that night, it was a long one.

    The other was the Normanby I met my fiance’ there, after picking her up and taking her home 1 night. I didn’t sleep with her even though she suggested it, I gave her my card. 3 weeks later called me and asked me to take her to and from the Normanby again. Then the following week, etc. Then went out on a date, I was suspicious of her nature but it turns out she was just extremely drunk that night and I’m a hottie… so…. we have been together happily for 6 years now. Both completely faithful.

    I got at least 8 offers from the Normanby within the 18 months that I worked, and about 5 from Family, and probably about 15 all up from various places around brisbane, New Farm, Valley, City, on Friday/Saturday nights.

    If you want to pick up but don’t care for drinking, why not get payed for it as well…. Become a cabbie if your at least half decent looking, between 20-35, you will pick up… no doubt.

  6. i cannot believe no-one has mentioned the Downunder bar. it’s actually impossible to NOT pick up there. sure its a massive hole, but if all you’re looking for is bangbang then it’s a winner.

  7. I met my man 4 yrs ago at The Normanby and still going strong :-)
    Now have our fav lounge bar (as we get older) in the valley- São Paulo

  8. I have been picked up many a time, when I have been to Fridays in the city.

    I often go to Fridays on a Wednesday night when it is ladies night, because I want to find some honest female conversation but all I ever find are middle aged men who try to buy me cocktails.

    Maybe I should go to a new bar.
