The Alliance Hotel

Spring Hill

Built in 1888*, The Alliance Hotel is one of inner Brisbane's landmark heritage-listed pubs, perched on the corner of Boundary St and St Paul's Terrace in Spring Hill.

The Alliance Hotel Spring Hill

The newest chapter in its colourful history has seen it taken over by the canny owners of cool city bars Frogs Hollow and Alice, reinventing itself as a convivial Melbourne-style neighbourhood pub.

The pub has retained most of its original features, including ornate ceiling roses, fireplaces, carved wooden bars and staircase, sash windows and timber floorboards, while the vibe is casual and inviting, with eclectic retro music and mixed-age clientele.

Take a seat in the front bar, out on the street where there are a handful of tables or in the rear bistro, and enjoy a drink and some delicious pub grub (which is ordered at the counter).
