When a tough day gets you down, a good happy hour can pick you right back up again! Where are you meant to go for the best happy hours though? We’ve put together this list of our five favourite happy hour spots in the city so you can have the most awesome week possible!
Welcome to the Rumpus Room! Much loved for its cheap drinks, top DJs and ancient arcade machines (not to mention the sweet bean bags), this trendy West End joint is most definitely the place to be on a Monday night. Basic spirits costs a paltry $5 between 5-7pm, and there’s no better place to shed that case of Monday-itis.
“Absolutely love this place! If you want a funky, vibrant, relaxed place to get a drink and listen to great tunes, this is the place for you. If you’re a ditsy fashionista or a self-assured metro, walk on by – this is NOT the place for you! Very electric, creative, typical West End type crowd. Drinks are inexpensive and always a great vibe here.” – zuckerkeks
You managed to survive Monday so we think that deserves a reward. This evening, we’re off to 127 Bar, where the beer flows even more freely than usual between 5:30-6:30pm. Bottles are $6, quality Newstead craft beers are a steal at $9, and there’s also various wines, bar snacks and charcuterie boards available to tempt your resolve.
Did you enjoy your time at 127 Bar? Review it here!
The Milk Factory is worth a visit for the “stormy seas “wall mural alone. Of course, this uber-trendy bar has many other things going for it too, including antique furniture, quality grub, and real craft beer experts on staff. Speaking of which, you’ll absolutely want to be here for ‘Wing it Wednesdays’, when five honey and sriracha chicken wings and a nice cold beer can be enjoyed for just $10. Delicious and cheap? Count us in!

Is there anything better than chicken and beer? How about super cheap chicken and beer? Today’s travels take us into central Brisbane, where we’re stopping off at a rather swanky establishment called Rush. It’s an opulent cathedral of fine food and drink, you can grab half a kilo of succulent wings and two Coronas for just $15 every Thursday night!

We’re only interested the very best deals which is why we’re heading into Fortitude Valley. Kerbside is a large, immensely cool space that combines a bar, a market, striking street art and countless funky armchairs to wonderful effect. Be there Friday for a full chicken parmy meal and a stubby of Fat Yak or a glass of house wine – all for only $16!
