I migliori rooftop bar di Brisbane
Brisbane è famosa per essere una città soleggiata e per i suoi bar. Le persone amano gustare un cocktail sul tetto dei locali.
In Brisbane, the rooftops are the place to be when it’s time to meet up with friends or sample the subtropical cocktails served up by the city's finest mixologists. From Fortitude Valley to the city centre, these on-trend bars are taking it to the top.
The Pool Terrace & Bar
Where: 72 Queen St, Brisbane
Sometimes it’s the location that makes the bar, and The Pool Terrace & Bar couldn’t be more central. For retail hounds who want to make a day of it along Queen Street Mall, this is the spot for a mid-shopping cocktail and even a dip in the 21-metre (69-foot) infinity swimming pool. You’ll find it on level four of the Hyatt Regency, but the open-air pool terrace is not just for hotel guests; locals love to people watch from this perch above the mall, and when the sun goes down, the bar hosts fabulous parties that call for high heels rather than swimming gear.
Where: 99 Mary St, Brisbane
This isn’t so much a rooftop bar but a bar that is perched at the top of the entire city. On the 30th floor of the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Brisbane’s highest bar, Sazerac, is literally taking the city’s rooftop bar scene to a whole new level. Once the hotel’s gym, this is a haven for cocktail lovers with such tipples as a salted caramel martini or the pisco-based, fairy floss-topped sugarplum fairy and the signature Sazerac which includes Peychaud's bitters and absinthe.
Dandy's Rooftop Bar
Where: 71/73 Melbourne St, South Brisbane
Even on a rare cloudy day, the sun shines brightly at Dandy’s, thanks to a vibrant colour scheme and playground mentality. Atop the hip Fox Hotel, a much-loved place right on Fish Lane in South Brisbane, you’ll be unable to resist Instagramming the AstroTurfed, multi-hued space among the striped umbrellas, fiesta-toned lights and a young, cheerful crowd. Snack on meat skewers, pizzas and breads, sip on colourful cocktails and local craft beers, and dance to DJ tunes.
Soleil Pool Bar
Dove: Podium Level, Rydges South Bank, 9 Glenelg St, South Brisbane
Se ti trovi a sud della città, vai al raffinato Soleil Pool Bar di South Bank per rinfrescarti in piscina. Partecipa a una festa improvvisata a bordo piscina con un dj, esperti barman e un ambiente glamour. Prova un tea garden, una formula che prevede qualche stuzzichino accompagnato da Pimm, champagne o birra. La domenica pomeriggio è un momento molto frequentato, ma il bar è anche il luogo ideale per un aperitivo prima di cenare al premiato ristorante Bacchus, anch'esso al Podium Level del Rydges Hotel.
Limes Hotel Rooftop Bar
Where: 142 Constance St, Fortitude Valley
The Rooftop Bar at Limes Hotel claims to be Brisbane's first rooftop bar. Lounge on sofas under the shade-covers during sunny afternoons, or jump into one of the two small plunge pools and watch a movie on the bar’s cinema nights. The cocktail list has always been famous, but the frosé, made of rosé, strawberry and citrus juices, may be the best drink of all to enjoy on a balmy evening out.
White Lightning Tiki Bar
Where: 132 Constance St, Fortitude Valley
A kind of super-venue in the rock’n’roll neighbourhood of Fortitude Valley, Alfred & Constance is filled with multiple themed bars that mean you can have a day, or a night, out bar hopping and never leave the venue. Upstairs is a retro, fun-filled space that pays tribute to the Polynesian-style tiki bar, with a bright yellow grand piano, an interior filled with artificial grass and ferns and a cocktail menu that screams "tropical". This may be a rooftop bar but, with every space filled with paraphernalia, it feels very cosy.
