If you’re trying to impress a new flame, or just looking for a fun night out in Queensland’s capital, Brisbane has a heap of night time activities to ensure your night will be one to remember.

Les Bubbles

This French inspired restaurant promises a glitzy night out, at a reasonable price. The Les Bubbles menu consists of steak and unlimited frites, with a wine list including plenty of bubbles to sip the night away. It’s an ode to a decadent French Steakhouse, but set in an old Brisbane building that was once an illegal casino, brothel and bath house. After dinner, guests can venture downstairs for a cocktail at the trendy, and updated, Bath House bar.

One of Brisbane’s hidden gems, the Brisbane Jazz Club is an institution in Brisbane’s music scene. Located on the banks of the Brisbane River, with sweeping views of Brisbane’s CBD, this humble club hosts some of the best local jazz artists.

 Boggo Road Gaol Ghost Tour

Boggo Road Gaol was once a working gaol near inner city Brisbane. For 109 years it dominated the city’s skyline. It was fully shut down in 2002, but now hosts educational and entertaining tours. The ghost tour runs in the evenings and lasts two hours. They look at some of the creepy ghost stories of the gaol and are not for the faint hearted.

One of Brisbane’s most popular bars, Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall, guarantees a fun night out in Brisbane. This American inspired Honky Tonk hosts country and folk artists, serves lots of whiskey and some of the best chilli fries and cheeseburgers in the city. If you’re feeling adventurous, head upstairs and find your way through to the mermaid bar. It’s another mystical world!
