There is nothing, NOTHING, better on a hot (read: sweltering) summer's day than taking a dip in a cool blue pool. A frosty beer in one hand, a good book (ahem, trashy mag) in the other, and we could happily waste a few hours doing a whole lot of nothing. The only thing missing is having a slave on hand to feed you endless Pina Coladas, a la Cruisey in the 1988 award-worthy movie epic Cocktail, and life would be on the up-and-up.
On that note, hold onto your two-pieces and your speedos, ladies and gents, and slather on the Hawaiian Tropic Oil, cos Brisbane has a new, very grown up, watery playpen! Occupying the space that was formerly Bacchus's pool, the rooftop has had one exxy and very sexy reno', emerging as Soleil Pool Bar—we are the 'sunshine state', after all—and is looking super chic, just in time for a summer of shenanigans.
With a luxe penthouse atmosphere, and spacious seating—so you don't have to make awkward pool-side convo with a perfect stranger (the. worst.)—Soleil Pool Bar does chic tropical getaway like a boss, and is an easy contender for best new bar in Brisbane.
Soak up the rays, or just soak in the cocktail list, 'cause it's all good here. Not only a dab hand at making some pretty delish concoctions, Soleil Pool Bar stock some of the finest craft beers going, plus an edited and excellent wine list. Add to that a pretty swish selection of nibbles to feast on, and you have yourself one of the best bars in Brisbane.
With weekly Saturday night and Sunday arvo poolside sessions, featuring live DJ sets playing well into the night, Soleil Pool Bar clearly likes to party, sunshine or none.
So, seeing as the weather is great one day, fabulous the next in these parts, grab your mates, don your finest swimmers and bring your best party garb, as Soleil Pool Bar is, in a nutshell, a relax all day, party all night kind of outfit. Just leave the inflatable swan at home…
