Sip and snack your way through Brisbane’s best watering holes on this Bar Safari

Whether it's an after-work tipple or a slow Sunday affair, sipping and grazing your way across town is a glorious way to spend your time. The City is home to some iconic bars, legendary locales and hidden gems that can surprise and delight diners with their ever-flowing array of drinks, glorious grazing platters and spectrum of atmospheres to suit almost every occasion. As part of Dine BNE City's packed program this year, you can meander through a self-guided trail of signature food and beverage pairings with Bar Safari. So, tie up those laces and build up an appetite as you explore some of these delicious duos ...


The Charles: If the thought of a well-stacked charcuterie board sends your heart into a flutter, then grab your pals and head to The Charles for its grazing delights. For $69 per person, you and a friend can marvel at ‘The Charles Tower’, a charcuterie selection of artisan meats and cheeses perfectly paired with your favourite glass of wine. Beyond your usual Friday evening cheeseboard, this tower combines life’s finest pleasures and will undoubtedly consume your dreams for many weekends to come.

Santa Monica: Soak up some Cali vibes at Brisbane’s own Santa Monica, where you can enjoy your choice of share plates and a cocktail from the menu for only $30. Think cheesy garlic and herb pizza bread, grilled marinated tiger prawns with Asian salad, salt and pepper calamari, marinated mushrooms with hummus and pita bread or crumbed mozzarella sticks with hot sauce, washed down with the likes of a frosé, pink gin spritz, mojito, amaretto sour or lychee martini. The endless combinations are bound to keep you entertained long into the evening.

Rothwell’s Bar & GrillThe team at Rothwell’s knows that simplicity is often the key to a delightfully delicious affair, which is why its is offering up six freshly shucked rock oysters and a glass of Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé Champagne for only $45. This elegant pairing is the perfect way to end a long week or start a luxe weekend in The City.

The Boom Boom Room: Just like life, food is often best shared with those you love, which is why The Boom Boom Room is offering up a delectable tapas flight and cocktail for only $35 per person. Grab your mates and pick up to four snacks, including its delicious crumbed duck katsu and mouth-watering chicken thigh yakitori. On second thoughts, perhaps sharing isn’t the best idea. We won’t judge if you choose to savour this on your own.

WET Deck W Brisbane: Take a dip and indulge in the W Brisbane’s WET Deck ‘Sea & Sparkle’ package with a friend as you toast to some unbelievable views of our fine city. Designed to be shared with a friend, the package allows you to enjoy four lobster tacos and two glasses of Hentley Farm Blanc De Noir sparkling for $60. We’ll cheers to that.

Walter’s Bar: Fancy some frites and a glass of fizz? Head to Walter’s Steakhouse in Old Mineral House and take your pick from its range of feverishly good frites. Think steak frites with sauce au poivre, duck frites with cafe de Paris butter or Moreton Bay bug frites with thermidor sauce. Better yet, add a glass of Taittinger Champagne for $55 and toast to an afternoon spent feasting on good food for the soul.
