We all know the saying “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.” So go forth and spend your Sunday wisely – we’ve got you sorted when it comes to a couple of cheeky Sunday bevs and a good feed with your best pals in tow.

Blackbird Bar and Grill

Riverside Centre, 123 Eagle Street, Brisbane

Blackbird Bar and Grill is possibly ‘the’ riverside hotspot every day of the week, Sunday included. The newly launched Sundays at Blackbird is complete with a beast on a spit that is carved into tasty sliders, boutique mix & match beer buckets, summertime cocktail jugs, a new bar menu with lots of casual dining options and a luxe afternoon vibe above the river.

Archive Beer boutique

100 Boundary Street, West End

For craft beer enthusiasts look no further than Archive Beer Boutique and its 22 rotating drought beers on tap and over 400 domestic and imported bottled beers. It’s the perfect place for an afternoon catch up over a couple of beers.

The Fox Hotel

71-73 Melbourne Street, South Brisbane

The Fox Hotel has had a facelift recently, making the shift from teenage party hub to a more chilled out atmosphere with a quality food and drinks menu. Soho Sundays on Dandy’s Rooftop is definitely a thing when a spicy chorizo, sweet corn and feta pizza and mango Weisbar inspired cocktail is on the menu.

Cobbler Bar

7 Browning Street, West End

Cobbler is a whisky and cocktail bar with a twist. Sure it has 300+ whiskeys from all over the world, but it’s the food menu, or lack of, that intrigues me most. Cobbler is BYO food! Yup, you heard correctly, you can take whatever food you wish to consume with you – a DIY cheese board, selection of desserts, takeaway from nearby restaurants… let your imagination run wild.

Alfred & Constance

Corner of Alfred and Constance Street, Fortitude Valley

Alfred & Constance is synonymous with quirky hipster, it’s colourful, fun and unpretentious. There’s three bars and so many areas to explore – the White Lightning Tiki Bar, The Vanguard Beer Garden Bar, The Alcoholic Juice & Smoothie Station, the underground Fever Club and a number of foodie hotspots to fill the gap between drinks. And you get lei’d on arrival.

The Normanby Hotel

1 Musgrave Road, Red Hill

It’s the place to be on the northside come Sunday afternoon, with flowing drinks, hearty food and many areas to mix and mingle until your heart is content.

Woolly Mammoth Alehouse

633 Ann Street, Fortitude Valley

Although Woolly Mammoth is the new kid on the Valley block, the contemporary beer hall has gained a large following with its rustic off-the-bone menu, large selection of craft beer, crowd-pleasing entertainment and indoor activities to the likes of Bocce, Giant Jenga and Shuffleboard. Enjoy a Mammoth Sunday. They also provide a little something extra for the craft beer lovers.

Dutch Courage Officers’ Mess

51 Alfred Street, Fortitude Valley

Dutch Courage Officers’ Mess is a gin bar with all of the trimmings. Inspired by the British colonial outposts of the late 19th century, Dutch Courage specialises in gin cocktails and has a well-planned selection of share plates and tapas on offer. For those basking in Brisbane’s gin scene – this is the place to be.

Riverbar & Kitchen

Riparian Plaza, Promenade Level
71 Eagle Street, Brisbane

Spectacular Story Bridge views, plenty of seating, a colourful menu and drinkies abound, Riverbar and Kitchen is as casual as it gets without compromising quality and atmosphere. Come at me jug of Passionfruit Sangria!

Soleil Pool Bar

Podium Level, Rydges, Corner of Grey and Gleneig Streets, South Bank

Poolside bars are the It-Girls of the Brisbane nightlife scene when it comes to hot days and sunset hangs. Although Soleil Pool Bar has only just opened, it’s set to become a Sunday go-to thanks to its luxe interior, tasty bar menu, summertime drinks list and inviting pool begging you to take a splash.
