Winter in Brisbane doesn't always mean pulling out your wooliest jumpers, comfiest trackies and cosiest blankets — but it is a great time for wintry bar makeovers. Whenever the middle of the year hits, the Regatta is one such watering hole that likes to spruce itself up for the season. And this time, from Wednesday, June 1–Wednesday, August 31, it's turning into a forbidden forest.

Head to the Toowong spot's courtyard for florals aplenty, all in deep shades that suit the winter vibes. Also a huge highlight: the fruity cocktail menu that features brightly hued sips poured into highballs.

Drinks available include the Winter Warmer (Plantation Original Dark, Edge of the World Shiraz, agave, ginger ale), Peach Fizz (Seven Seasons Yam Vodka, peach liqueur, lemon, soda), Starry Night (Hendricks Midsummer Solstice, butterfly pea, lemon, tonic), Lunar Eclipse (Hendricks Lunar, yuzu, lime, soda, tonic) and Aloe There (Bati rum, lychee liqueur, aloe vera juice, lemon, soda).

There'll be a food menu to match, all on offer during the Coronation Drive venue's regular operating hours — from the very first official day of winter until the very last.
