The Terrace

Sporting a retractable glass ceiling and lush, living walls, The Terrace is one of the quirkiest rooftop bars in Brisbane going. Ascend up to the heavens to enjoy amazing views of the city while you sip lavish liquid libations, including the Freaki-Tiki, made up of rum, juniper, Aperol, coconut, butter and spice.


Get your quirky fix at Cobbler in the West End, where you'll find walls adorned with retro posters, not to mention a vintage penny farthing hanging from the ceiling. What's on the menu? Over 300 types of whisky alongside perfectly prepared classic cocktails.
