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 missed out on tickets. We’ve got you sorted. Here are the best bars in Brisbane to watch the Maroons take out game one.
Darling & Co | Paddington
Beers on tap and a spacious set up make Darling & Co perfect for a pre or post-game drink. Obviously you’ll be drinking for QLD at the full time mark.
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 Origin at the Caxton at least once, have you even really done Origin?
The Regatta | Toowong
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 | CBD
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.
Bavarian Bier Café | CBD
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 Bavarian Bier Café already.
Plans sorted, now we just need to win.
