Where is the best cocktail bar in Brisbane?


When it comes to planning a party in Brisbane, bars of Brisbane have you spoiled. But what we’re hunting for on this post is the best cocktail lounge in Brisbane CBD or other suburbs.

Brisbane cocktails are a big part of Brisbane nightlife. Who do you nominate as the greatest cocktail bar in Brisbane?


  1. Hands down: Junk bar in Ashgrove. Great cocktails, friendly staff, wonderful atmosphere.

    Otherwise, The Press Club, mainly for their flaming cocktails, and knowledgable bar staff.

  2. Fifth element at southbank. The total knowledge of those bar tenders, their willingness to share their trade and passion, their incredibly friendly and helpful, not only that but the quality of their ingredients. Second to none. You cannot beat them for excellence in every single way.

  3. agree with the above;
    Sling Bar
    The Bowery
    Cloudland (dependent on bartender)
    Lychee Lounge
    The Press Club
    the bar downstairs at X &Y bar

  4. The Bowery in Fortitude Valley wins without a shadow of a doubt. Such phenomenal drinks, the atmosphere is awesome even on the more crowded nights, just a great place to chill with friends and a few delicious drinks.

  5. Sling Bar at West End and Salon Bar at Teneriffe – far and away the best two cocktail bars in Brisbane – if you haven’t been there you haven’t experienced how good cocktails can be.

  6. The Hilton hotel! They make anything i request that’s why they’re the best and they know they’re cocktails!
