It’s that time of the year again! Your true competitive nature comes out and where you were born has never mattered so much in your life: it’s Origin time. Obviously, such as a momentous occasion calls for celebration of epic proportions, and a decent spot to watch the game if you're not lucky enough to be watching the game IRL.

We’ve got you sorted. Here are the best bars in Brisbane to watch State of Origin aka where the Maroons take out game one.

Ca'aaaan Queeeeeensssslanderrr!

Fat Angel


Settle in and watch game one on one of 8 screens at Fat Angel (overachievers, much?), paired with a frosty XXXX and a bucket of their hot wings. It's what game days dreams are made of.

Munich Brahaus

South Brisbane

With 10c wings all night, a huge selection of biers on tap—you can also get them in a 1L glass boot, so there's that—and bulk screens ensuring you don't miss a second of the game, Munich Brahaus is the place to be this State of Origin game night.

Woolly Mammoth

Fortitude Valley

A huge selection of frosty craft beers and even huger TV screens make Woolly Mammoth the perfect place to settle in to watch the game.

The Caxton

Petrie Terrace

If you haven’t done State of Origin at the Caxton at least once, have you even really done Origin?

The Regatta


Honestly, it would be rude not to have at least one beer at The Regatta come Origin. There are so many different spaces here you can even do the Origin with a bit of class – yes, that does just mean drinking champers rather than XXXX.

The Alliance

Spring Hill

This gastro pub’s meal offering makes us super proud to be Queenslanders, so what better place than The Alliance to celebrate another QLD win?

The Fox

South Bank

TV screens? Check. Cold beer? Check. Plenty of space? Check. See you at The Fox then?

River Bar & Kitchen


As if some of the best views in Brisbane aren’t enough to make you feel like a proud Queenslander, watching us win the game in luxury at River Bar will.

The Bavarian 


Is there any better way to enjoy Origin than on an huge balcony with unbeatable views of Brisbane and a stein in hand? Head for The Bavarian already.

Plans sorted, now we just need to win.
