    Townsville's historic post office now houses this sociable gastropub, which serves upmarket, bistro-style meals and boutique beers brewed on-site. The owners have combined modern finishes with the building's original design, incorporating old post-office fittings, such as the main bar, once the stamp counter, to create a venue with character and polish.

    Located on the water in the Cruise Liner Terminal, Hemingway's Brewery is in a historic building, has a relaxed vibe, and there's plenty of room for families or groups to spread out. Enjoy Trinity Inlet views over one of the eight in-house beers on tap. There is also a classic food menu featuring local produce served in burgers and salads, or on pizzas, for those who want something to pair with their pale ale. It's a fun venue with lovely views and good beers.

    Wall-papered walls and a glorious wood-topped bar create a relaxed vibe at this discreet watering hole. It serves fine Australian wines, classic cocktails, and customized “grazing boards” to a sophisticated, largely local crowd. A long, well chosen wine list has plenty of fine Aussie vintages by the glass. Sit in air-conditioned comfort or on the shady patio and chill out to jazz while you tipple and graze.

    A prime waterside location and a big, breezy deck draw an upbeat, mixed crowd to The Pier Bar. They flock here for wood-fired pizzas, well-priced drinks, and laid-back Sunday sessions with live music and DJs. The bar gets noisier, younger, and more crowded as the night wears on, but service is friendly and food is palatable, even when the bar’s jam-packed.

    If you're looking for fiesta-style fun, Casa de Meze, with its tapas bar, Latin menu and music, and free weekend salsa sessions, delivers.

(Friday, with topless barmen and free entry for ladies, is the Casa's "Girls' Night Out.") Other nights, the bar's open till around midnight. Service can be slow and food quality varies, but if you're keen to socialize, you'll find lively, likeminded folk here.

    Drink, dine, and mingle with the locals on the sun-drenched riverfront deck of this laid-back, often half-empty bar on Flinders Street's nightlife strip. There are billiard tables, arcade games, plasma TVs, Friday-night specials (including A$5 bar snacks), and live acoustic sessions on weekends, but the biggest drawcard here is the view from the outdoor tables..
