DogTap Brisbane

406 user reviews 4

If you're looking for a dog-friendly bar overlooking the river in Brisbane, DogTap is a firm choice. Not only does this spot have industrial interiors and a crackin' beer garden but they have over 28 taps of beer, mouthwatering tacos and plenty of wings.

On the hunt for cool pubs in Brisbane? Then make sure to check out Pig 'N' Whistle, which boasts outposts in Fortitude Valley, West End, King George Square and beyond. Head on over to for British-style grub alongside delicious drinks and eye-catching interiors.

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.
