When you’re looking for somewhere easy and relaxing to meet friends for a drink in a central Brisbane location, the Front Bar is an excellent choice – and only nine minutes’ walk from Central Station. Handy if you’re meeting people from different sides of town!

Our Front Bar is the perfect mellow backdrop for chats with mates or first dates over a boutique beer or fine wine – and perhaps even staying for a casual lunch or dinner. This traditionally styled bar has a light and airy atmosphere where all are welcome and feel right at home.

Grab a bite while you’re there

Inspired by traditional English gastro-pub food and modern Australian classics, the bar menu has something to suit all tastes – and that includes dishes made for sharing. Burgers, oysters, duck spring rolls, scotch eggs, chicken parmy and even crispy pig’s trotters make an appearance – talk about eclectic!

And something special to wash it down

Each dish from the bar menu will find its perfect complement among our extensive range of boutique beers, fine wines, ciders and premium spirits. If you’re not sure what you fancy, our staff know the menu back to front and will be happy to assist.

This part of the Alliance Hotel offers an informal, ‘pop in, pop-out’ alternative to the sit-down dining experience of the award-winning Alliance Bistro. It’s open from 11am Monday-Saturday and till late on Friday and Saturday nights.

Keep an eye on the sport

Showing major sporting events (and taking requests), the front bar has two big-screen TVs that flank the bar and give live sporting updates. On special evenings, an eclectic selection of music can be heard playing late into the night.
