Brisbane Boozehounds Rejoice!

We already knew we had the best bars, but there must be something in the Brisbane river water because we brought it HOME last night at the Australian Bar Awards. Champagne for everyone!

Brisbane legend Jamie Webb took home two awards with newcomer Seymour’s Cocktails & Oysters winning Bar Food of the Year, and Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall taking home Best Live Music Venue. G&G favourite The Gresham took home the Bar Team of the Year award, and Cobbler also celebrated a win with whisky darling Ella Rhodes crushing the competition to win Rookie of the Year.

Taking out the top prize was Brisbane legend Dan Gregory of Canvas – receiving the honour of Bartender of the Year. We might be losing him to Tasmania but he’ll always be a Brisbane boy to us! We never need an excuse to partake in a drink or two, but we’ll definitely be celebrating!

Congratulations everyone!
