Don’t lock yourself away in the air-conditioning as the mercury rises this summer. The sunshine state’s answer to embracing the summer heat: pool parties. Taking it to the next level with a tried and tested combination of refreshing cocktails, super-stylish swimming pools and DJ’s spinning the latest tunes, there’s simply no better way to laze away those long summer days than at one of these rooftop pool bars.

Soleil Pool Bar, South Bank 

Soleil is French for sun and you’re bound to soak up plenty of it at this chic gold and white bar located on the pool deck of Rydges South Bank. Pack your swimmers and head to Soleil on the weekend to enjoy access to the resort-style swimming pool, DJ’s and live acoustic music.  

Want to impress out-of-towners? Order the Soleil Garden Tea. This refreshingly unique and oh-so-summery take on high tea combines an array of delicious treats such as salt and pepper calamari, black Angus beef sliders, mini doughnuts and more with your choice of iced tea, American amber ale, Pimm’s, Veuve Clicquot or even a Soleil signature punch bowl full of sangria!

Picture yourself basking beside a 20m infinity pool as a waiter brings you cocktails, tapas, pizzas, burgers and even COYO ice cream. We bet you weren’t picturing yourself in the center of the city, but at Next Hotel’s Pool Terrace & Bar you can.  

Why not treat yourself to a staycation and take advantage of our exclusive offer to Next Hotel Brisbane, which includes daily buffet breakfast at Lennons, a welcome drink each on arrival, $50 food and beverage credit and you can make the most of this sun kissed city with a leisurely late midday checkout.

Limes Rooftop Bar, Fortitude Valley  

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a Brisbane local that hasn’t spent a summer evening at Limes Rooftop Bar. Located in the nightlife district of Fortitude Valley, this bar could arguably be said to have started Brisbane’s obsession with rooftop bars.  

Despite being around for almost a decade, Limes Rooftop Bar still leads the way with its unique offering of two bubbling spas/plunge pools, an open-air cinema that runs twice a week and resident DJ’s that are such a hit they keep the crowds rolling in until the early hours of the morning.
