What we're about

Want to find cool drinking spots around Brisbane but more off the beaten track? Ok I've been to quite a few meetups and they tend to centre around the big city bars. But when I go out with friends I never go to these places. There are some great bars in and around Brisbane but a bit harder to find. So lets get out and find new places so you can impress your friends with your local knowledge. While not quite Melbourne in terms hidden drinking establishments there are still some gems that are just waiting to be discovered.....

There will be regular events on every month, & although there will still be the focus on finding new & exotic bars, there will also be the run of the mill on offer too. Always open to suggestions!

So hold tightly onto your reins & get ready for a ton of giggles (Oh maybe a drink or two............or six!!)

Warmest Regards,

Lisa & Kirsten
