Found in the West End, Cobbler is a slinky haunt where whisky reigns supreme, with over 300 bottles available. Settle into the Chesterfield sofas surrounded by quirky knick-knacks then dive into the extensive list of cocktails - you can even snap up two margarita cocktails for $10 on Mondays.

The Terrace

For unrivalled panoramic views of the city, head to what might be the best cocktail bar in South Brisbane, The Terrace. This beautiful rooftop totes a glamorous white theme and lush living walls. Wet your whistle with tipples such as the Big Disco Energy, a marriage of gin, jasmine, mandarin and more.
