Known for their love of liquid nitrogen and an extensive on tap selection, Monday drinks has never offered so much choice. Pick your poison from cotton candy laden cocktails or a tasting paddle of brews.  Oh and it’s only $1 wings on Monday eve so tuck in too. Or if your choice of spice has started a fire for something heartier, the burgers match the beers wonderfully.

Tucked away in the tourist haven that is the Surfers Paradise Marriott, this isn’t a venue to pass up. Munch on easy fare or share the mini bites with friends, whatever you please. The bar can be a little packed on weekends but a midweek stop guarantees a spot all to yourself. It doesn’t feel like a hotel bar and that it’s biggest strength. So order an old fashioned or an espresso martini and sip away.

Down the coast a little to everyones’ favourite is certainly worth the trip to Balcony Bar.

What’s not to love about a Japanese bar stacked with snack options? Mamasan is a great choice for catchups or midweek bevs that shouldn’t get too rowdy – although with a little extra sake they most certainly can. Order your dumplings and sip on a authentic cocktail while you wait. Umeshu sour brings together flavoured rice wine, bitters, lemon, a little sweetness and egg white – all with a cherry on top. You’ll be sipping sake like Kanye in no time.
