Where to eat and drink this International Women’s Day

Man! I feel like a cocktail.

International Women’s Day is coming up on Monday, March 8, and we see no reason why it shouldn’t be a three-day celebration… This weekend, we’re not afraid to eat like a girl. 


The Regatta Hotel’s moody underground speakeasy–The Walrus Club–is hosting an all-female bar takeover on Sunday, March 7. Women in Walrus will include signature cocktail competitions, pumping live music, and an array of eats like charcuterie, cheese, lobster sliders, and more. Head here to read more about the event. 


Coffee and climb, kayak and canapes, or abseil and Aperol. What’s it gonna be, ladies?

Riverlife Brisbane Outdoor Adventure Centre is supporting the 2021 Australian initiative #ChoosetoChallenge by launching their Choose YOUR Challenge movement on Monday, March 8. With sessions throughout the day, Riverlife’s activities are a great way to step outside of your comfort zone and feel empowered while surrounded by your best gals. Oh, and each session ends with gourmet canapes and a complimentary bev! Thrill seekers and food lovers, book your session here!


Our favourite rainbow paradise is turning pink for International Women’s Day, with an all-day Sunday sesh on the cards! Kicking off at 11 am, Brunch with Beksis will see DJ Beksis take to the decks while you enjoy brunch specials, cocktails, and immaculate vibes. 


Lovewell isn’t just your average cafe or breaky spot… It’s a woman on a mission.

Sitting up on the stunning Mount Gravatt lookout, Lovewell works with women who are rebuilding their lives, and creates a safe community. Their International Women’s Day breakfast is $30pp and includes breaky, coffee, and the opportunity to listen to inspiring guest speakers Elizabeth Skinner and Katie Staggs. Book your ticket here

We’re just excited to celebrate the incredible women in our lives the best way we know how… By spoiling them with ALL the eats and ALL the dranks.
