Legends Bar

Legends Bar is a top-secret, speakeasy Brisbane bar where steampunk meets the prohibition era, silent movies screen non-stop and black cocktails are served.

The trick is to actually find the bar, whose address is given out via map co-ordinates and whose entrance is via a door with a vintage wall telephone mounted beside it.

And that’s not all – once located, punters must then unlock the door via a keypad password (pm their Facebook page to find out!), after which there's a darkened hallway and some stairs leading to another door (this one needs no password - just turn the handle!).

The reward for all your efforts is a bar unlike anything else in Brisbane, with steampunk paraphernalia (steamer travel trunks, ancient world maps, relics of Victorian machinery, radiograms, a pianola and original typewriters) strewn around, a projector screening black and white films and a bar that serves the only black cocktails in Brisbane, amongst other curios.

Hand-crafted signature cocktails include 17th Sin (made from activated charcoal, ketel one vodka, rosewater and aloe), the Steam Punk Old-Fashioned (makers, maple, orange bitters and apple smoke), the LPD (liquid tiramisu) and Honey Comb Bliss (scotch, butterscotch, chocolate, bitters and honeycomb).

There’s also a decent wine list and spirits (standard and premium) as well as a small menu of bar food to accompany. On the list are Moroccan spiced meatballs, BBQ pork sliders, fried chicken wings with dipping sauce, nacho cups, croquettes and fried Brie cheese with sticky plum sauce.

Nice to know – Hint: it’s about 300m from Brisbane’s first (unofficial) burial ground and a stroll from John Oxley’s landing monument.
