It might be perfect for lazy days lounging in the sun, but Noosa is far from a sleepy coastal town when it comes to nightlife.
Whether you’re going for a quick post-dinner cocktail are ready to dance until last call, we’ve got the right places for every kind of night out.
A staple of Hastings Street nightlife, Miss Moneypenny’s lures you in with its Mediterranean-inspired late-night menu, and tempts you to stay with its signature cocktail list, with spritzers, sours, and of course, “The 80’s Cruise Ship Drinks.” Learn how to make them yourself with a private mixology course from their all-star bartending team.
If you like your bars on the water, and your drinks on the rocks, this is the spot for you. Boasting a collection of 40-plus bottles from around the world, this bar is great for a sexy date, or for wetting your whistle before hitting the town for the long haul. Might seem like an obvious pick, but you can’t go wrong with their whisky sour with Old Forester bourbon.
Keen for a bite with your late-night tipple? Locals flock to Village Bicycle in Noosa Heads for after-hours appetisers, thanks to one of the few kitchens in town that keeps serving after 9. Grab a bite from their street food-inspired menu and cosy up in their beer garden for a late night of conversation and craft brews.
True to its name, this bar zeroes in on a regionally-inspired menu of bites and cocktails, except the Locale, in this case, isn’t Noosa, but the Amalfi Coast. Transport yourself from one gorgeous waterfront to another, with these Italian signatures like the meringue-in-a-glass Amalfitano cocktail or the citrus-forward La Signorina.
Land and Sea
This local favourite brewery describes Noosa as “pure wealth for the soul,” and you can drink their riches in the form of summery ales, lagers and sours. Open until 8 on weekdays and 9 on weeknights, their large Noosaville space offers beachy laidback vibes—and access to the Fortune Distillery, which offer delectable cocktails made from the vodka and gin distilled on-site.
Or, Make it a Night in
Feeling a little too cosy in your suite to make a trip out? Enjoy a cocktail from the comfort of your balcony by ordering from the cellar on Providore on Hastings. Take the quick trip down to their cellar (on the ground floor of Netanya) or just give them a ring to have your go-to tipple delivered.
