Best Places to Visit in Brisbane

With an average of 300 days of sun every year, Brisbane is the ideal place to enjoy an exciting and rejuvenating alfresco lifestyle. Over the last five years, this city has truly come alive with a great range of bars, clubs and cocktail lounges to suit every taste.

Go to Sunnybank, aptly nicknamed Chinatown by the locals for outstanding oriental cuisine or move into Teneriffe for some of the hottest nightlife that this country has to offer.

Best Restaurant in Brisbane

- Kingsleys Steak and Crabhouse

Brisbane has always had a reputation for great seafood restaurants and with its three varieties of crab on the menu, Kingsleys Steak and Crabhouse is one, if not the, best in the region.

Accessible by car and bus but also by Ferry, eat inside or out depending on your mood and enjoy some of the most mouth watering seafood dishes that you will find anywhere in the world.

And if you are not a seafood lover, why not try one of the exquisite alternatives which range from game and lamb to the kilo T-bone steak only for those with a very healthy appetite.

The service is outstanding, the wine list incredible and it is all complimented by an exceptional atmosphere and a view of the Brisbane River that will take your breath away.

Best Bar in Brisbane

– Salon Lounge

Right in the heart of one of the most up and coming areas of Brisbane in Teneriffe, the Salon Lounge offers a more European tapas style to its food that encourages you to try new flavours and share them with your friends.

With rich bold wallpaper and sumptuous red and gold fabrics adorning dark wood throughout, the focus of the Salon is definitely on the drinks with a range of classic and contemporary cocktails that would probably challenge some of the top mixologists in the world.

Try a Bellisimo made with a mixture of peach sorbet, star anise oil topped up with a bubbly prosecco to create a delicious cocktail that will always start the night off right or opt for the Madame Brussels for one of the most delightful drinks you will ever experience.

Best Nightlife in Brisbane

– Cloudland

Though it took three years to create, Cloudland was definitely worth waiting for and is quickly becoming the hottest place to be seen in Brisbane.

Famous for its urban grit and alternative music, whether you are captivated by the spinning rings and 4900 lighting channels that adorn the front of the four storey building or have let the buzz surrounding this club spike your interest, this is one part of Fortitude Village you simply won’t want to miss.

Completely designed by Australia’s own talent in the form of Nic Brunner, Cloudland is a visual feast that takes neo-deco to a whole new level. With over 5,000 plants and its own retractable ceiling, the words lavish and evocative are used to describe Cloudland with very good reason.

The variations of style and opulence across the four floors and a stylish but creative cocktail menu means there is something for everyone and with bars open until late Wednesday through Sunday, the party never has to stop.
