Looking for the best bars in Brisbane? Then no need to look far as Brisbane has a decent pouring of atmospheric bars in which to drink a cocktail or glass of wine as well as a splash of outstanding holes-in-the-wall and we've curated them here. Fortitude Valley may be Brisbane's epicentre of bar culture, albeit with a host of boutique venues that offer respite from the seething street crowds, but if a foray into the Valley doesn’t appeal there are plenty of other inner city options.

And while the CBD is suit city on Friday nights, things are decidedly less corporate on Saturdays. For those who like to steer clear altogether of areas where the hordes descend, the north, south, west and bay suburbs of Brisbane have some great alternatives. - see here for Brisbane's best suburban bars. And when when winter rolls around snuggle up in one of Brisbane's cosiest bars.

Lastly if you're after a bar with a change of altitude, check out Brisbane's rooftop bars or best underground bars.
