From classic watering holes on every corner to charming bars, hidden laneways with live music gems, or large concert halls, there’s no shortage of nightlife in Brisbane to keep the party going.
Let's get this party started
Home to Australia’s largest live music precinct, Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley is alive long after dark with the sound of live bands and pumping nightclubs.
Or if you’re looking for places to dine, find the culinary action over at Howard Smith Wharves, Fish Lane, or Eat Street Northshore. Make sure to stop in at one of the city’s many rooftop bars for a cocktail (or three) while looking over a sea of twinkling lights or get lost down an alleyway lined with boutique bars for a cheeky whisky or sophisticated wine bar.
If you’ve had your fill of music, food, and drinks, skip dinner and kayak along the river at twilight, watch a movie under the stars, explore the city’s art and entertainment options, or see what’s on in Brisbane’s dynamic events calendar.
Fortitude Valley, or The Valley, as it’s affectionately known to locals, was Australia’s first dedicated entertainment district. It remains a celebration of live music and nightlife, with Brunswick Street Mall’s population of bars and clubs buzzing well into the early hours.
