With its warm and tropical all year round feeling, Brisbane is a city that exudes summer vibes no matter when you visit.
The atmosphere on a weekend turns this popular central business district into a no-holds barred party zone, if you know where to look. As they say, all work and no play makes Jane a dull girl so be prepared to hit the bars on a Friday night to find women who are looking to let their hair down after work.
Our guide below takes a look at some of the best hookup spots around Brisbane for those seeking one night stands, casual encounters and NSA fun.
Best Bars and Clubs for One Night Stands
If you want a selection of beautiful women, it helps to visit the most popular spots around town. Here are some Bris pickup venues known to be ideal for those who are single and looking to mingle…
Eagle Lane, Brisbane City, QLD 4000
Winner of the Best Live Music Bar 2015, the Brooklyn Standard is one of the hottest bars in the city. They open at 4pm until late from Monday to Thursday and from 6pm until late on Saturdays. Music starts at 7.30pm but the best acts start at 10pm. Our advice is to get in early to stake a good spot at the bar.
Riverside Centre, 123 Eagle St, Brisbane City QLD 4000
Popular with city workers on a Friday night this restaurant operates a full nightclub from late night. Best to go on a Friday night and wait until the girls get a little more flirty; particularly the 35-45 year olds!
The Victory Hotel
127 Edward Street, Brisbane, QLD 4000
Brisbane’s favourite meeting place, the Victory Hotel is popular with students as well as tourists and city workers. The age range is actually quite wide but your best bet for pulling is downstairs. The place has six bars each with its own unique vibe from live sports to karaoke, loud music to intimate relaxed spots this place has it all.
Alfred and Constance
Alfred St/Constance St, Fortitude Valley, QLD 4006
Two Queenslander homes knocked together this three storey venue has it all; a White Lightning Tiki Bar, Beer Garden and The Fever Club – a ground storey disco with thumping tunes. The place is really popular at the weekends for the 25-35s who are looking for an exciting night out.
152 Oxford Street, Bulimba, QLD 4171
If you’re looking to hook up with a slightly older woman then try Oxford 152, a fashionable and up-market cocktail bar which plays loud music in the evenings. The women here are classy and the venue is too so the dress code is definitely smart.
Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall
15 Caxton Street, Brisbane City, QLD 4000
Voted Bar of the Year 2014, Lefty’s is an old gentleman’s club and retains the old world charm of this exclusive club. Think taxidermy bears and dears adorned with stray bras and throw in a heady mix of country music and blues. Dimly lit chandeliers, intimate booths and a great atmosphere make this a good place to hit up girls who are in groups.
One Night Stand Websites in Brisbane
If you can’t be bothered with the challenge of doing all the legwork then fortunately there are just as many women seeking casual encounters with men in the city. Many of these websites offer paid access to members who are looking for no strings attached sex. The benefits are that you both know whats on offer and you can cut right to the chase.
If you’re a regular visitor or somewhere local then you can try a Fuck Buddy site where women are looking for a more regular hook-up but without any complicated relationship:
Australia’s biggest online directory of adults looking for no strings attached fun, Adult Matchmaker is not your usual online dating service. Far from it. The company was founded on the basis of bringing likeminded people together and a huge proportion of the sites 2.5 million Australian users are looking for a casual encounter.
It boasts some of the highest user satisfaction ratings of any of the major hookup communities.
Adult Friend Finder
If you are familiar with hookup sites, then chances are we don’t have to explain the appeal of AFF.
Adult Friend Finder is the world’s largest community of likeminded adults looking for sexy fun, one night stands, affairs and other hookups. For sheer numbers alone, it’s the best first port of call.
These sites are generally less well known, but still worth checking out…
A similar site to AFF with the same concept but more of a one night stand kind of affair, No Strings Attached Brisbane claims to offer tens of thousands of singles in the area who are all looking for the same thing as you.
The frisky Be Naughty dating website is open for singles who are looking for more than just a meet up with a coffee. There are women on here who are looking for something more serious so you will need to be cautious when filtering out your choices. Don’t be subtle about your expectations and you will stand a better chance of hitting the jackpot rather than wasting your time.
NSA Sex on the Brisbane Classifieds
As ever, the go-to classifieds of Craigslist, Backpage and Locanto offer the discerning guy access to plenty of local women who are just looking for sex. There are some escort services in amongst the listings so make sure you are on the same page before you arrange to hook-up.
Other Hookup Ideas
It may be straight out of a classic gent’s handbook but hotel bars near the airport and in popular tourist or business districts can also be a good way to hook up with women. Be careful that the management don’t catch on to your game (although, most bar staff have seen it before and find it entertaining).
The other place to go and hang out to meet single women is at one of the many markets that Brisbane has.
You have the Jan Powers Farmers Market, Boundary Street Markets and Eat Street Markets. It may take all your skills to pull at one of these venues but you’ll probably find a few cougars in amongst the crowds.
