Narrowing down a list of the best places for a drink on the Sunshine Coast is a hard gig, but we are giving it a go.
Whether you’re craving a sophisticated spritz at a rooftop bar overlooking the sparkling horizon of the coast, a locally brewed hinterland beer where you can have a yarn with the brewers or just a refreshing drink date with the sunset – the Sunny Coast has you covered. Here are Visit Sunshine Coast’s top 7 picks of where to have a sundowner on the coast.
The newest Rooftop Bar on the Sunshine Coast has everyone talking, with no surprise, considering it consists of sneaky ocean views, cascading indoor greenery and the most refreshing Diablo Spritz you could dream of. This bar will become a crowd favourite in no time with a curated list of cocktails, beers and wine, and a delectable lunch menu that even has a plant-based section.
The Savvy Squire
The only spot on the Sunshine Coast where you can taste the full range of James Squire Brews on tap and we aren't complaining. Now located in the Mooloolaba's new and inviting space at The Wharf, the urban industrial fit out will have you sipping beers for hours by the water while the sun sets over the marina.
Newly opened in October 2019, Malt Shovel Taphouse has everyone buzzing with excitement. Described as an emporium of beer, Malt Shovel Taphouse will host an impressive range of 16 thirst-quenching, cracking and flavour packing craft beers on tap. With live music, bespoke beer events and family entertainment, the venue is a must visit for locals and visitors alike.
There's something everyone just can't resist at Brouhaha. It might be the delicious variety of locally brewed on tap beers, including a delightfully different raspberry stout. It could also be the delicious locally sourced food, with fresh veg from just down the road at Falls Farm and Maleny Wagyu beef raised nearby. Whatever it is, we are here to stay for arvo beers and yes - taking away a six pack.
No longer the newest kids on the block, your mates are growing and growing quick. You can join Larry, Donnie, Macca and newest edition Sally at their industrial Kawana home. There is nothing amiss on their share plate menu, from loaded tater tots, to grazing boards with cured meats, olives and local cheeses. With a comfy industrial vibe and tasty bar snacks, we know you’ll be pulling up a bar stool to share with Larry in no time.
