Bracken Ridge Tavern

Bracken Ridge

One of many facilities in this sprawling entertainment complex, the Bracken Ridge Sports Bar is absolutely state of the art. Seriously. It’s got a huge 100-inch HD TV alongside eight additional 46-inches, as well as booming surround sound and three additional HD screens outdoors. Pretty much everything here is super-sized. Order your bevvie of choice in a massive 3L sharing tower, and be sure to grab some ribs at nearby Panama Jack’s!

Holland Park Hotel

Holland Park West

With pool tables, wide screens and cutting-edge TAB facilities, the sports bar at Holland Park Hotel has everything you need to make the most of the action. From AFL to UFC, there’s always something worth catching here. If there’s one day you have to be there, however, it’s definitely Free Sausage Sizzle Saturday. After all, the only thing better than sizzling sausages is free sizzling sausages!

“A nice place to go for some beers, a game of pool and a punt on the horses. The chicken Parma is also enormous and will not disappoint” – davieboi

Tingalpa Hotel


Lovely staff, classic Aussie grub and a fantastic outdoor play area makes Tingalpa Hotel the perfect choice for those looking to mix a sports bar trip with a family day out (it’s also the perfect way to get your little rippers into the game early on). Keno, TAB, live sports and an entire gaming room ensure you’ll never be bored, and the Sunday chicken wings deal is awesome. How awesome? ‘$14.90 for a whole kilo’ awesome.

“The food was GREAT, the service was OUTSTANDING and the children had an absolute ball on the FREE jumping castle, with a FREE ice cream and FREE face painting. The management at the Royal Mail recognised my husband and I and made a point of coming to our table and gave us a very warm welcome.” – aj1999
