Summer might be over, but the sun still shines and the weather is still toasty during autumn in Brisbane. So, if you're keen on finishing up your weekend with a few drinks outdoors — and by the water, because that's one of the great things about living in a river city — that's still well and truly on the agenda.
At Byblos at Portside, throwing in a few G&Ts is also on offer, with the bar hosting weekly gin and tonic garden parties. Stop by every Sunday in March from 3pm, and you'll know what you'll be drinking. There'll be a few new and different cocktails on offer, too, with names such as 'Storm Season', 'Portside Paloma' and 'Phoenican Tonica' — all with Fever-Tree providing the mixers.
Entry is free, but bookings are essential. You'll also get a soundtrack to your Sunday afternoon hangout session, thanks to a DJ and a live saxophone player. And, sticking around while the sun sets is heartily recommended.
