Expect something old and something new at The Village Social, Nundah's newest watering hole. Prominent reminders of the Sandgate Road venue's past provide the former, while a craft beer focus comprises the latter. If you like your dive bars accompanied by a slice of local history, it's a marriage made in heaven.
That's what every nearby neighbourhood hangout should offer, after all: a cozy drinking spot and a cavalcade of community charm. And once you walk past the feature wall boasting a photo from the site's early days, pull up a stool at the rustic timber bar, and order one of the four brews — Fortitude's Pacer 2.8, Holgate Brewhouse's Roadtrip IPA, 4 Pines Pale Ale and My Wife’s Bitter — on tap, that's exactly what you'll find.
Of course, that's not all The Village Social has to offer, especially when it comes to beverages. A selection of bottled beers awaits those looking for more options, as does a cocktail list that combines old favourites with brand new house-made concoctions. Enjoying your drink of choice a cheese and charcuterie platter is recommended, as is dropping by on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. That's when your tasty tipple will come with a live jazz, blues, roots and reggae soundtrack — and demonstrate yet another aspect of the bar's local focus.
