When The Westin opened in Mary Street, finally filling the CBD's giant hole in the ground, it brought with it Brisbane's first swim-up watering hole within a body of water. That was great news for everyone planning a luxe staycation — and now it's great news for everyone, with Nautilus Pool Bar opening to the public from Friday–Sunday between October 11 and February 9.
The luxe hotel is turning weekend afternoons into a pool party, which is a mighty apt way to spend a few hours at this time of year. Cool off with a dip and a drink, with rosé, frosé, wine and cocktails on offer. There'll also be food stalls serving up bites, as well Nautilus' usual array of poolside snacks.
Then, all you need to do is lounge around on the daybeds while you're sipping and eating — and between splashes — too. On weekends from 2–5pm, live tunes will also provide a soundtrack.
The Westin Pool Party runs from 3pm on Fridays, and from midday on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets cost $20 if you buy online in advance, or $25 at the door.
