There’s nothing like a glass of rosé to help you cool down on a warm summer’s day. And no matter whether you prefer it chilled or frozen, Brisbane’s bars have got you covered. Here are some of the best places to grab either a crisp glass of rosé or an icy frosé treat.
You might know Harajuku Gyoza as Brisbane’s top spot for Japanese dumplings and beer, but it doesn’t let the team down in the wine department either. It has a lovely little selection of boutique Australian bevvies to quench your thirst, including the amazing Bouchard Aine & Fils Rosé. Sweet and pink, it’s perfect for sipping on a summer’s day as you chow down on a big plate of takoyaki (now that’s living your best life). Plus, Harajuku Gyoza has a frozen beer, which may just be the new frosé. We’re calling it here first, folks!
“One of the best places for gyoza in Brisbane! The service is out of this world and I love how each person is always greeted ‘loudly’ by all the other waiters and even the kitchen hands. The food is great and the atmosphere is awesome. Make sure to get in early as there is always a line out the door as they don’t take bookings.” – Kimmie_Rae
The all-day food, multiple venues and beautiful décor are just some of the reasons to visit Alfred and Constance. One of the Valley’s best bars, their cocktail list is seriously on point – which means of course they’re serving up a fabulous frosé. A sweet and refreshing blend of rosé, strawberries and citrus fruits, and it’s exactly what you want for a lazy afternoon beneath the golden Brisbane sun.
“Interesting Queenslander styled cafe/restaurant/club, the food is good, the cocktails are better!” – Candyce
Got plans for Sunday? You do now! Darling & Co is an awesome bar and restaurant with great food and an impressive drinks menu – which includes the Miss Play Frosé, made with rosé, strawberries and a delicate touch of rosewater. The Sunday lunch special is a real highlight, featuring a fresh lobster roll and a glass of frosé for only $16. That’s right – you can be fancy AF with lobster and satisfy your inner child’s love for sweet, slushy drinks at the same time, and it costs less than a movie ticket. For that kind of value, you can sign us up for two! No, sorry, we’re not sharing…
“There was a really chilled and trendy vibe for the brunch crowd when I checked out Darling and Co. The brekky meals were very generous and there was a great variety from MYO too fresh fruit combos, pancakes and a suite of vibrant healthy choices.” – Little Foody 2 Shoes
Claret House is a charming wine bar where the good stuff flows freely and chairs float on the ceiling (you’ll see). The rosé is impeccably chosen (as you’d expect from a wine bar that knows its stuff), and we’d particularly recommend the Yarra Valley’s Levantine Hill. Decadently delicious, you’ll want to buy it by the bottle – one glass is never enough! Try pairing it with a cheese board, or skip straight to dessert and order some of their chocolate truffles. You can’t go wrong!
Plush, friendly and deliciously trendy, Mr & Mrs G is one of Brisbane’s leading waterside eateries. The food menu has a little bit of everything, from confit duck to mini beef sliders, and the wine list is like a dream come true. Every bit as classy as the venue itself, it has something to tempt everyone – including the 2015 Unico Zelo “Baby Steps” Barbera Rosato. This is one divine rosé – as light and sunny as the weather, and perfect to sip on as you gaze out over the river.
“Amazing views, great Share plates, amazing cocktails, great for after work drinks. Highly recommended. AAA” – Sidsmum
