Every day of the week at the Valley’s most iconic bar

There’s a reason The Wickham has remained a Brisbane icon and Valley staple for so many years (and far more nights out than we care to admit). With top-notch bites to tempt your tastebuds, crafty beers to cart over to the beer garden, and an award-winning garden bar (recently named Australia’s best by QHA!) we’d hardly need an extra reason to stop by – let alone seven. Every day brings something new at The Wickham – join us for a whirlwind week of food and booze, and a whole lot of fun you probably didn’t know you could find at this historic spot!
Monday | Start the week with a tasty breakfast
OK, we meet most Mondays with a louder-than-necessary sigh and a stomp of the feet, but it’s kinda hard to feel grumpy when faced with a plate from The Wickham’s breakfast menu. Sit us down with a berry-licious smoothie and some smashed avo on toast and call us happy campers – just don’t make us promise not to check back in on the weekend for baked eggs or the big breakfast board!
the-wickham-3Tuesday | Get in a weeknight dinner
Sunrise, sunset. Waiting 36 hours for our next visit is socially acceptable, right? Along with the classic pub parmy and beer battered fish ‘n’ chips, there’s always the option to get a bit trendy with one or two (or four) share plates. Whisky prawns, pork belly bao, and the ploughman’s charcuterie board are just a few of the plates available. The sharing? That’s optional.
Wednesday | Catch a movie
OK everyone – half-time break. Head to The Wickham for an open air movie showing on Wednesday nights from 7pm. Along with showing a different flick every week, admission (and your popcorn supply) is free! Check out what’s showing, grab a drink from the bar, and kick up your feet. But seriously, they had us at free popcorn.
Thursday | Test your knowledge at trivia
Brain still running? Good. Before hitting the off switch tomorrow, head down to Quizmeister’s Trivia sesh from 7pm, where you can grab some brain food from the bar and run your sharpest friends through their paces. And while beer might not get you across the finish line, we can confirm – it makes trivia hilarious.
the-wickham-2Friday | End the week with post-work drinks
We hope you’re still kickin’ – cause it’s all happening Friday! Head down from 4.30pm for live music in the Beer Garden. Then at 5, tap into your generous spirits with The Wickham’s Karma Keg, a tapped keg where you get to choose the price – and all money raised goes to a local charity. Need to soak up those Friday beers? Late night bites no longer amount to a sad plate of microwaved nachos when you get home – The Wickham’s full menu is available ‘til 1am for your beer-addled needs.
First Saturday of every month | Hit the markets
Running the first Saturday of every month, the Style Markets are a chance to grab some brunch and head into ‘spree’ mode. For those not rocking the Karma Keg hangover, the markets include 2 hours of free parking and plenty of cool activities – like the odd terrarium workshop and puppy cuddles. For our hungover friends – the first hundred shoppers will nab a mimosa on arrival.
Sunday | Fit in a Sunday sesh
Alright, set your clocks to snooze, folks – a Sunday sesh at The Wickham doesn’t kick off ‘til 2pm. Head down to the Beer Garden after those extra z’s for DJ tunes, cocktails and bar bites ‘til late. Lucky you can duck back in for a hangover curing breakfast on Mondays, right? And yes, you can back it up for 7 days in row. Twice. Words by Samantha Chariton Keeping the G&G up to date requires a lot of double lattes, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. But rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
