A Brisbane institution, The Tivoli is known for its intimate theatre setting which attracts some of the best local and international artists in the world including Bob Dylan, Katy Perry, Death Cab For Cutie, Powderfinger and Taylor Swift. It’s also only a hop, skip and a jump away from some of the city’s best bars, which means the fun can continue well after the music stops.
Still reasonably new to Brisbane’s music scene, The Triffid offers an amazing live music experience for all who visit and play at this industrial venue. Set in an old WWII aircraft hangar in the middle of Newstead, it’s also home to an outdoor beer garden.
Sonny’s House of Blues
If blues, jazz, ska and rock & roll are your jam, Sonny’s House of Blues is for you. Not only does it have moody live music, but an impressive menu for when that late night hunger kicks in. Think dim lighting, great music and delicious cocktails. But, would we expect anything less from the people behind Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall?!
Hey Ya Bar
This hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of Fortitude Valley is an underground bar with live music, pool tables, pinball machines and Asian inspired street food. Hey Ya Bar is the perfect place for late night eats and drinks, while listening to some of Brisbane’s best up and coming bands.
