Norman Hotel

The Norman is a good place to meet a cross-section of Brisbane society. It is a custom for those attending matches at The Gabba to get a pre-match steak. There are two bars here, the new Norman’s Bar and the traditional Sports Bar. Busy steakhouse serving cuts of Queensland beef in a converted old hotel with outdoor beer garden.

Bars & Nightlife

Brisbane is overflowing with great pubs. Most of the hotels double as drinking establishments for both locals and guests of the city. Beers are served in pots, schooners, pints and jugs and the beer taps in many bars will be specially chilled, causing the condensation to freeze on the outside. Most hotels are open 10:30am–3am, and the traditional “Sunday Session” runs from 11am to midnight.
