Hotel LA is pretty much your standard Queensland bar, and funnily enough that’s the one thing that sets it apart. It doesn’t try and be something it's not. There’s enough Pokie machines to entertain all the residents of a small resthome, plenty of TV’s playing strictly Sports, and with the brewery in plain sight, XXXX flows out of its taps all week long. Hotel LA really is a huge bar and has little corners and couches for you and your mates to spin yarn.
Sitting at the top of Caxton Street, Hotel LA makes for the perfect pre or post match beer. Perhaps even more so though, with the $5 Sunday pizza special, it is the ideal place to round out the week, which is exactly what we were doing on this occasion.
Choose from a decent range of [izza options (I went with Hot Sausage) grab a $5 Pint (another Sunday special), and watch Shane Warne bowl one more 20/20 match out of his suspiciously tanned right arm; because nothing’s more Sunday than beer and cricket. For $5 the Pizza is quite amazing. Oh and if you stay after six there’s usually a very cool acoustic act on stage.
Other weekly regulars include Mon-Sat happy hour 4-6, Table Tennis Mondays, $6 roast lunch Wednesdays, and Karaoke Thursdays. Mate.
