Brisbane’s best late-night dining

You snooze, you lose.

Ready to be woke, Brisbane? It turns out that our not-so-sleepy city is home to plenty of foodie spots that keep chugging on until the stroke of midnight, or even later!

Whether you’re a certified night owl, shift worker, or student looking for a caffeine fix, you’ll find somewhere to burn the midnight oil (and maybe even add some fuel) at these spots that kick on late!


Whether you’re kicking on, getting down to DJs or perking up with a snack, LiveWire 24/7 Sports Bar at Treasury Brisbane has you covered every day of the week until 5 am!

From ball sports to boxing, LiveWire 24/7 Sports Bar is your go-to for all the big games you don’t want to miss broadcast live, large, and loud (with food and bevs to boot) in this heritage-style sports bar in the heart of the city. All your cheering, chatting, and cheers-ing with friends is sure to work up an appetite, so you can look forward to late-night staples like wings, burgers and pizzas to keep you fuelled into the wee hours.


When it comes to late-night dining, you only need to head Mei Wei’s way to find expertly-folded dumplings, steaming noodles, and golden roast duck until long after dark!

As well as the stunning classic Chinese bites on offer until 10 pm Sundays-Thursdays, you can treat yourself on Fridays and Saturdays (when Mei Wei stays open until midnight) to the Late Night Delights special, dishing up spring rolls, your choice of dumplings, and a beer for just $15 from 10 pm until 12 am!


Sometimes, you just need freshly shucked oysters in the middle of the night… luckily, Kitchen at Treasury offers an overnight menu until 5 am every. single. day! 

Once the regular menu hits the hay (at 10 pm Sundays-Thursdays and midnight Fridays and Saturdays), your late-night (or early morning?) dining experience awaits, with the likes of steak with chips and salad, burgers, and even the classic triple-decker club sandwich.

  • Mei Wei

Did you know you can dive into a Korean BBQ spread until midnight every day in the heart of the city? Swap being heavy-eyed for just straight-up heavy by ordering Maru’s tasty assorted wagyu set or BBQ pork set, paired with sizzling (read: ziggling) cheesy rice cakes, and kimchi pancakes.


Because it’s never too late to carb-load, Valley newbie Eterna serves up classic Roman cuisine including carbonara, cacio e pepe, and nibbles until 11 pm, Tuesdays-Saturdays. Settle in with a spritz in the romantic laneway or find a spot to get intimate with your steaming bowl (no judgement)—now that’s amore.


There’s no better place to enjoy late-night salvation in the form of brandied apricot pancakes than Brisbane’s iconic Pancake Manor. Located in the heritage-listed St Luke’s church, this 24-hour restaurant is the perfect place to waffle on late with yummy pancakes that come both savoury and sweet.


It might be out of the way, but trust us, the trip is worth it for the fried chicken feast that awaits you! Slip yourself into a serious food coma with Momo’s Korean and Japanese draught beers and piles of boneless sweet candy chicken, cheesy fries, and spicy stir-fried noodles until midnight every day!

Jimmy’s On The Mall | Brisbane City 

It’s just a little too late? Jimmy would tell Jojo otherwise, with his 24-hour restaurant serving up delicious modern Australia plates to the wide awake all night long, seven days a week! Passersby can pass the time at this two-story masterpiece while enjoying eats like classic chocolate pudding and wagyu beef lasagne.

Greaser Bar | Fortitude Valley

Stay up until the roosters start to crow with the help of fried chicken burgers from the Valley’s Greaser Bar! Open until 3 am on Friday and Saturday nights, this burger joint is the one to hit when you want to the good time to roll on well past midnight.

Lucha | Brisbane City

Lucha like it’s your lucky night! These guys know best that nothing beats a strong cuppa at night, which is why they’ve filled their menu with food that has one ingredient in common–tea! While delicious roast chicken with tea dipping sauce and tea-infused Peking duck are only available until the kitchen closes at 10 pm, the restaurant serves take-away bubble teas and awesome cocktails well past midnight. 


Sleep is for the weak (and caffeine-deprived).


Keeping The G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally collaborate with local businesses we love, like this article’s sponsor. To learn more about our food-crazy audience and how we can help you out, head here.
