What's Open in Brisbane for Summer 2023/24: Bars, Restaurants and Cafes

Updated 5 months ago

Share

This time of year is strange: most of us have a fair bit of time off, but so do our favourite venues.

Thankfully, quite a few places are staying open over the holiday break to make sure you get out of the house. Some are old favourites; others are some of the best new spots in town. They’re all worth a visit – use this break as an excuse to finally get to that spot across town you’ve been meaning to visit.
