If there is ever a complaint leveled at Brisbane’s nightlife, it’s a lack of late-night bars. But no more. Industry veteran and Frog’s Hollow owner, Peter Hollands has gone out on his own to open Alice Bar, which is now open seven days a week until 3am.
Alice is found down an unused laneway on Elizabeth St. Simply follow the red lights and you can’t miss it. Head down the stairs to the basement for an old-school boozer dedicated to 80’s rock, cocktails lots of bourbon. The big highlights here are the 13-metre bar top, and a 100 Disk AMI Jukebox, dedicated to your rock favourites.
Peter has pulled together one of the most experienced management teams Brisbane has seen. Michael Pattison (Suzie Wongs, Brooklyn Standard, The Bowery) leads the venue and is ably assisted by Brendon Osmers (Gerards Bar, The Gresham, The Bowery). The venue offers a cracker list of cocktails, with a focus on quality serves and classic flavours. The back bar features a 150+ bourbon list for the corn-whiskey lovers.

Peter says: “80’s music is so iconic. It provides so much inspiration around style and theming. Though I didn’t want to create something kitsch, it had to be genuine. You’ll find so many easter eggs within the space however we’ve focused on creating a great bar first.”
Since Covid, Brisbane has been missing a proper late-night boozer. “There are a number of venues that close at 1am, or 2am on the weekends but no one has committed to 3am, 7 days… Until now,” says Bar Manager Michael Pattison. “I’m stoked we’ve been able to pull together such an experienced team at a late-night bar, so you can expect an amazing cocktail or great whiskey recommendation whether you come in at 6pm or 2am.”
