Thirsty for a deal? Boozing on a budget

Payday just out of reach but the thirst is real? Got a hot date and don’t want a declining credit card to dampen the mood? Looking for a night out with the girls but Afterpay has left you scraping the barrel? We feel you. Scrape up the change from the back of the couch and put down the $5 cleanskin – we’ve got the scoop on where you can drink better, for cheaper – every night of the week.


Kick off the working week with a bang at Heya! Slink out of work early (late meeting anyone?) and roll into great deals from 5pm-7pm. Hospo? Your life just got even better, with 25% off everything for hospitality card holders.


When your brain is already screaming ‘WHAT A WEEK’ on Tuesday, you know you’re going to need something to kick you out of your funk. Luckily Salt Meats Cheeseare pouring $9 Espresso Martinis to put a spring in your step. Add a giant bowl of gnocchi and it’s impossible to have the Tuesday blues.


Wednesday’s are for one thing and one thing only – wine. Bloodhound Bar are coming to the rescue with $35 bottles of red and white wine, just what the doctor ordered. Pair that with 1kg of their finest wings for $10 and you’ve got yourself a hot date – literally.

Feeling something a little fancier? Doll up and step on into the Doll House for Martini night, every Wednesday 4pm to close for a new list of drinks every Wednesday.


It’s Friday eve and you’ve only got one more day of work to get through – what’s a cheeky hangover between mates? Archive Beer Boutique proves they’re more than just a brew-tiful bar with $10 cocktails on Thursday nights. Pair it with some cheeky sweet potato chips or the new cauliflower burger for a guaranteed good time. Proceed with caution friends, this could get wild.


Mamma Mia! It’s Friday Funday baby and what better way to launch into the weekend than with Aperitivo Hour at Jamie’s Italian from 4-6pm! Sip on a $10 Negroni, Bellini or Aperol Spritz with complimentary nibbles and let the weekend worries wash away.


For a super Saturday, we can’t look past a cheeky vino at our favourite hidden cocktail bar, Super Whatnot. It might be small in size but it makes up for it in swag, so take a seat at the bar, or people watch from the balcony overhead with one of their daily specials from 4-6pm.


Don’t let the Sunday blues creep up on you! There’s still 24 hours between you and 7000 emails and Jessie’s Girl is open from 2pm! Serving up $10 Aperol’s and $6 beer and cider schooners all day, this is one Sunday Session that won’t break the bank. Line your stomach with some pipis & chippies for $15 and Monday won’t seem so bad.

No matter the day, no matter your bank balance, Brisbane’s got your back when it comes to beverages.
