An avid surfer and chef, Jason Coats has spent most of his life between the kitchen and ocean. He grew up in Noosa and started his career as a chef there, then moved to Brisbane, travelling regularly to Bali to surf.

He opened The Jetty after being inspired by the island’s relaxed atmosphere, globally minded community and thriving beach-club culture. It’s Brisbane’s very own slice of Bali, Bintang beers and all.

It has become the go-to place to hang out and enjoy the city’s best asset: the sunshine. It’s impossible not to feel relaxed on one of the day beds, lazing on a bar stool or congregating around the horseshoe-shaped “captain’s table” booth, most of which were handpicked in Bali. The service is quick and equally accommodating for those grabbing a quick coffee or large groups attending a function.

The food menu is as modern as the decor, drawing inspiration from around the world. There's Greek kofta teamed with tzatziki; enoki mushrooms with fried tofu; and a juicy Wagyu burger.

If you just want to enjoy the sunset with a cocktail, The Jetty caters for that, too. You’re A Sucker is a nice take on the traditional Caipiroska, with passionfruit and a pineapple juice adding the necessary sugar kick. The Espresso Martini will give you a different sort of kick. The beer and wine lists are succinct, varied and lean mainly towards local drops.
