These days there is no shortage of nightlife in Brisbane, which boasts a thriving live music scene and emerging small bar culture. The latter has seen a range of venues open up across the city in recent years catering to just about every type of night owl. For live music, Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest you head to the inner-city hubs Fortitude Valley and West End, where you’ll be able to find everything from indie rock to jazz. Looking for a slightly quieter night? Many of the boutique Fortitude Valley hotels offer rooftop bars where you can make the most of Brisbane’s balmy evenings and sip cocktails while enjoying unbeatable views of the city. Make sure you also pay an after-dark visit to the city center, where sophisticated venues like The Laneway, located above Urbane restaurant on Mary Street, offer fun and innovative cocktails.
