Few cocktail bars in Brisbane do views quite like The Terrace, and few do shiny surfaces either. Found in the Emporium Hotel on South Bank, expect a chic drinking experience atop the city as you browse over the pedestrians below, cocktail in hand.

Picture a world of industrial low hanging lights, penny farthings and bare brick and you've likely found yourself inside Cobbler. A must-try bar in Brisbane where bottles of whisky come in at over 300 options, lovers of the dram are sure to find a favourite here.
