Tucked away behind a steel door in Burnett lane this is your place for some craft beers and a wine list Bacchus himself would envy.

There is a small cocktail list which includes classic pre-prohibition drinks. Exposed brick walls and characteristic wood accents, it’s a slice of Brooklyn down under.

Their philosophy is simple: drink well.

4. Cobbler – 7 Browning Street, West End


West End is riot with trendy bars and relaxed vibes and the Cobbler is certainly one of the team.

Specialising in whisky, this relaxed bar will have you pining for the good old fashioned drink of choice.

It boasts a grand timber bar, chaises, sink into cushions and a stunning graffiti wall this is your perfect place for a warm and quiet drink with a few of your best mates.

3. Dandy’s Rooftop Bar – 71 – 73 Melbourne St South Brisbane


The recently renovated rooftop bar above The Fox Hotel is a delight to the senses. Bright décor and quirky touches this place is sure to put a smile on your face.

With cocktails named after famous tennis players, ‘The Anna Kournikova’ a sweet marshmellow infused vanilla vodka or ‘Serena’s Cerveza’ a bold combination of gin, Campari and bourbon

Head to higher heights and give her a go, you are ‘set’ to be ‘served’ an ‘ace’ of a beverage.

2. Hoo Ha Bar – 41 Tribune St, South Brisbane

Craft beers are taking over the Brisbane scene and Hoo Ha might well be taking the lead. Hoo Har boasts a selection of uber craft beers on constant rotation.

Situated in a quiet street of South Bank this place provides a warm relaxed feel with it’s warehouse-chic vibe, friendly staff and morish bar snacks.

And their breakfast is a sure hangover cure.

1. Tippler’s Tap – 22 Masters Street, Newstead


Located in the “it’s so hot right now” postcode of Newstead, Tippler’s is a craft beer nook that is getting the attention it deserves.

This is an all American affair, I was half expecting a southern cowboy to walk through the doors.

As you make your way through the ciders, wines and craft beers why not nibble on sliders, hot dogs and delicious buffalo wings as you chill to the sounds of Chicago radio.

I give thee a gentleman’s tip of the hat.
