Sunday Sessions Brisbane

Ever reach that point on a Sunday around 4pm and realise it’s almost Monday? Yeah, gross. Don’t worry, we’ve got the cure for your impending Mondayitis linked up.

With the days getting longer (and warmer), it’s the perfect time of year for a Sunday sesh, so grab your gang, settle in with a spritz and see how many of these you can tick off!

Macho Macho | Ashgrove

You have mucho to look forward to. Small Plate Sundays is a sure fire way to ease into the day, especially since you can buy two small plates (that are big on flavour) to receive a third for free! Social Hour specials will keep your arvo strong with tap beer, house wine and select cocktails up for grabs. Think a spring savvy Aperol spritz or Midori sour, and hours of happiness.

The Fox Hotel | South Brisbane

Hello Soho! Brisbane’s most iconic Sunday sesh kicks off on The Fox Hotel’s rooftop every Sunday. Affectionately known as Soho Sundays, 2pm sees the start of a wave of colourful characters rallying together for crisp views, brews, and DJ tunes. Grab a cocktail jug and keep your Instagram game foxy.

Oktoberfest Brisbane | RNA Showgrounds

What better way to finish off the weekend than with a stein of hand crafted German beer and a plate of Schweinshaxe, Bratwurst and Sauerkraut in front of you? Oktoberfest Brisbane is back on the 5-7 and 12-14 October, and it’s the ultimate Sunday with family and friends with traditional folk stalls and a designated Kinder Zone. Just don’t eat too much before you get on the rides! Running Prost!

Peasant | Petrie Terrace

Life’s too short not to try everything, so why not spend your Sunday snacking on tapas tasting boards and sipping on Sangria? Salsa into Peasant for bowls of paella, $20 sangria carafes and $35 tasting boards.

Darling & Co. | Paddington

If the sting from Saturday night is too much to handle, Dr. G&G recommends a healthy dose of hair of the dog, in the form of bottomless Bellini’s. Shuffle into Darling & Co. for a mouth-watering main and two hours of endless Bellini’s for $39pp, as well as DJs from 2pm. Just don’t blame us if your hangover miraculously reappears on Monday….

Byblos Belvedere Garden | Portside

Fancy yourself a cocktail craftsman but never got the chance to show your skills? It’s your time to shine with the Belvedere Garden at Byblos popping up on Sundays in October and November. Put World Class contestants to shame as you pick from the fruit and herb gardens to create your signature cocktail.

Kettle & Tin | Paddington

No one wants to be bored on a Sunday, so we recommend getting a board – of cheese that is. Team it with a bottle (or two – let’s be real) of wine and you’ve got no excuse to dread Sundays. Board and booze $60 specials kick off from 3pm. Boogie into your Monday with live music, and you’ll forget what day it is in no time.

Customs House | CBD

Customs House is hitting the gin – and it’s hard to know who is more sparkling, the view or the cocktails! Chill out in their latest seasonal pop up, Tanqueray Terrace, and enjoy fresh gin cocktails, as well delicious bites including fried pumpkin flowers with goats cheese, sundried tomato and thyme served with preserved lemon dressing, and Moreton Bay Bug buns with gem lettuce and cocktail sauce. Cruise in from 12pm each Sunday through spring and summer.

The Triffid | Newstead

There’s only one kind of blues we’ll accept on a Sunday, and that’s accompanied by some rhythm. Croon on into The Triffid on a Sunday for an afternoon of folk, country, rock and roll, rhythm and blues presented by some of the most respected musicians around. Relax in the gardens with a beer, and tuck into some panko prawn tacos or Triffid kaarage chicken. The only way to see out the weekend is with a beer with one hand and a taco in the other – otherwise we don’t wanna taco about it.

Embrace that sun, it’s the day for it after all!
