Sometimes, it's nice to forgo the gastropubs and microbrewers for a good old-fashioned pub ala The Caxton Hotel. Located a stone's throw from Suncorp Stadium, 50 meters to be exact, this unapologetically unrefined pub proves we don't need to mess with the classics. It's opened late, seven days a week, and just three minutes from the Brisbane CBD — yep, it's there for you like a reliable long-time friend you never knew you needed.

This Brissie icon has been owned and operated by the Farquhar family for more than two decades and boasts three bars, a restaurant, nightclub, cafe and bottle shop as well as ample outdoor space. Oh, and a hefty lot of accolades. It's a multifaceted venue with a lot on offer, from poker nights to karaoke sessions. The kitchen has a stellar reputation among locals and produces quality fare showcasing Queensland's irrefutably fresh seafood.

It's also got a really good heart, The Caxton is currently supporting #parmaforafarmer, which sees $1 of every parma sold in the month of August donated to a non-profit that's supporting struggling farmers. Because, everybody loves farmers, and parmas.
