These are the best bars in Queensland for 2024

Well — what a night! It is day two of the Bartenders' Weekender, and we have just held the second annual celebration of the best bars in Queensland: the 2024 Boothby Best Bars QLD Awards.

What makes a great bar? There’s the hospitality, first and foremost — it helps, too, if the drinks are delicious. You want a well designed place, somewhere nice to spend some time in — you want atmosphere, experience, and a good time. You also want a sense of place. That’s what the Boothby Best Bars awards are about. We asked bartenders and bar owners to nominate the bars they think are best in their state. And then we polled 100 of them — elite bartenders, influential bar operators, and the smartest bar industry figures — to find out how the rankings should look. The result? The Boothby 30 Best Bars in Queensland.

We've got the list right here.
