Brisbane Bars With Secret Entrances

Not only are these bars with secret entrances some of Brisbane's best to visit, the fun starts with trying to find them - through antique wardrobes, wine fridges and London phone boxes and even out back of a butcher's shop:

Archer's Bunker

Archer's Bunker is an aviation inspired bar hidden beneath Spring Hill's International Hotel, with entry through the secret fridge in Archer's Brewery or the red telephone booth inside the hotel...more 

Legends Bar

First locate the secret unsigned doorway in the city back street (clue - look for the antique telephone) then use the weekly Facebook code to gain entry to this steampunk-themed gem...more

Vaquero

Hidden behind an old world European style butcher shop is a glamorous bar (and restaurant) which is entered via a back door inside the tiny butchery, whose hanging charcuterie is served in-house...more
