As people who in touch with many venues across Brisbane, we have an eye for the best venues for that romantic occasion. We are spoiled here in Brisbane with some superb venues for drinks, food and more. So whether you’re asking out a match from an Ignite speed dating event; or you’re looking to show your partner of 20 years the latest hip place, check out our top 5 date spots in Brisbane!
If you’re looking for romantic, ambient vibes and enjoy a good glass of wine, Grape Therapy is perfect. Enjoy tapas style food as well cheese and charcuterie boards in their drinking den. They also have a huge range of whisky and when it comes to having a drink the staff really know their stuff!
New Farm Park:
Heading to New Farm Park is a great option for a day date, blessed as we are with the weather here in Brisbane. Enjoy a walk by the water or rose gardens and then set up for an afternoon picnic – alcohol is allowed at New Farm park if accompanied by ‘a substantial meal’.
Emporium Rooftop Bar:
When it comes to rooftop views, Emporium rooftop bar in Southbank is unrivalled. Enjoy drinks and food while looking out over the river towards Brisbane city. There’s also an infinity pool for hotel guests!
Will and Flow:
The newest venue on the list at a unique location looking across to Southbank, Will and Flow gives some beautiful riverfront views. Run by The Treasury Casino it’s perfect for lunch by the river or in the evening to enjoy the city lights on the water.
For those funfair vibes, live music and endless choices look no further than Eat Street. To cap off a memorable date, cruise along the river by City Cat, enjoying the views and breeze in your hair (starting location dependant of course)! Trying different things and wandering around together can often provide more possibilities on a date to, let’s say ‘grow’ together, compared with spending the date on opposite sides of a table.
When you match with someone from a speed dating Brisbane event, be sure to check out some of these options. We visit Grape Therapy regularly for speed dating events, and other venues like Dutch Courage, Baedeker and Sirromet that narrowly missed entry to this list!
