Eagle Street Pier's Last Hurrah

Say farewell to Eagle Street Pier at this champagne, vino and beer-slinging pop-up bar.

It's Brisbane's original CBD spot for drinks right by the river, pre-dating South Bank, Portside and Howard Smith Wharves. After cementing its spot as an inner-city mainstay since back in 1989, it's also saying farewell. That'd be Eagle Street Pier, which is being torn down and replaced by a sprawling new waterside precinct — and also setting up a pop-up bar to go out with a few drinks.

On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between Thursday, June 9–Saturday, June 25, waterside sips of champagne, wine and beer now await — all with that killer view. Providing the drinks: Mumm champagne and City Winery's Gerler wines, as well as a range of local brews.

Coppa will be on snack duties, helping line your stomach during this last chance to soak in a piece of Brissie history.

The pop-up will be up and running from 4–8pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and from midday–8pm on Saturdays.

Head by on Friday nights and you'll also be able to check out roving entertainment, and see fireworks light up the sky.
