5 great bars in Brisbane

With a population of 2.2 million people, Brisbane is the most populous city and capital of the Australian state of Queensland. It is also the third most populous city in Australia. The city is nestled along the idyllic River Brisbane, making the city have the allure of Venice, but with an architectural heritage of London.

During the WWII, the city was the South West Pacific headquarters for General Douglas MacArthur. It has hosted major global sporting events such as 1982 Commonwealth Games, World Expo '88 and the final Goodwill Games in 2001.

Being such a cosmopolitan and tourist friendly city, Brisbane has attracted huge investments in the hospitality industry. Below is a list of the top 5 bars in Brisbane where you can enjoy top shelf beers and wines.

1. Cicada - This is a great 'after-work' bar that is popular with the upwardly mobile executives as well as newly rich business moguls. It is located at 275 George Street and is a great place to network.

2. Super Whatnot - Located on the 48 Burnett Lane, this bar specializes in the craft beer. It serves the beer on a constant rotation which keeps its patrons thoroughly excited ant the next serving. It also boasts a cozy environment. The seating is set in such a way as to encourage camaraderie among the patrons.

3. Junk Bar - This is a suburban bar located in Ashgrove that makes you feel like you are seated in your living room. It features velvet couches, tasseled lamps, deer heads; completing the picture of an Australian game hunter living room. Its iced tea is something that will make you a regular at this bar.

4. The End - This bar is the newest addition to the hippie West End neighborhood of Brisbane. It serves top shelf wines as well as ‘home brew’ ales on tap. Trust me; this is one place that you will meet the lively and interesting crowd of cool, young and happy people.

5. Claret House - With delicious meals of charcuterie, farmhouse pate and cheese; this Teneriffe neighborhood restaurant and bar is the king of place where good friends hook-up for a meal, bonding and catch-up of the latest news on their social grapevine.

The night scene in Brisbane can easily rival that of London or Berlin. It is just a few shades from what you will see in Las Vegas and thus if you are looking for a fun way to spend your lazy evenings, Brisbane will be a smart choice.
