Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall
If you love live music with a country twang, Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall is the venue for you. You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re on lower Broadway in Nashville, rather than inner city Brisbane. With a mix of country and folk music aficionados, it’s a welcoming Honky Tonk style bar with friendly southern style service. The menu includes wings and chilli fries for those wanting to sit back and enjoy the music, or whisky sours with fresh apple juice for those warming up for the dance floor.
Decked out like a Texan saloon, Johnny Ringos oozes country and western charm. From the very entertaining mechanical bull, which guests are encouraged to ride, to the live music and cowboy hats, Johnny Ringos promises a fun night out. Serving American inspired food, including cheeseburgers, mac & cheese, cowboy caviar and Texas slaw, it’s almost like being in the real Texas.

Each year the stars of the country music world take the stages at CMC Rocks, Willowbank.

Queenslanders flock to the festival to have a full weekend of country tunes.
Stockmen’s Bar & Grill – Ekka
For 10 days in August each year the country comes to the city for the famous Royal Queensland Show (Ekka). During this time the iconic Stockmen’s Bar & Grill is open and filled to the brim with big hats, cowboy boots and live music. ‘Stockmen’s’ offers a true country Queensland experience in inner city Brisbane.
