Frog's Hollow Saloon x Alice Takeovers and Parties

Three interstate bars are coming to Brisbane for one-night takeovers — and you can also hit up a bar rave and a bourbon-heavy second birthday party.

Brisbane's bar scene is no slouch. It's also far from sparse. You can love getting a drink in your own city and want a taste of ace watering holes from around the rest of Australia, however. For that situation, the hospitality industry invented bar takeovers, where one booze-pouring place drops in to run the show for a night at another such establishment — and Brissie is about to welcome three interstate joints to show off their beverages.

In February and March, for one night apiece, sipping drinks from Sydney's Bar Planet, plus Cry Baby and Memphis Slim's House Of Blues in Adelaide, will be on the menu without leaving the River City. Bar Planet and Memphis Slim's House Of Blues are headed to Frog's Hollow Saloon, while Cry Baby will do the honours at Alice, all as part of a month-long party series.

Cry Baby will be bringing the late-night party on Sunday, February 18 to kick things off, before Memphis Slim's House of Blues and Frog's Hollow Saloon make a perfect pair on Sunday, March 3. Then, on Sunday, March 10, Bar Planet will be heroing martinis all evening.

The two sibling Brissie bars also have another couple of parties on their agendas: a rave cave at Alice on Sunday, February 25, plus Frog's Hollow Saloon's second birthday party Sunday, March 24. Expect to celebrate all night at the latter. Expect plenty of bourbon as well.
