Black Bear Lodge is a bar and venue tucked away above street level in the Brunswick Street Mall, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Australia. The stylish candlelit speakeasy, Black Bear Lodge, is the perfect place to enjoy a drink and catch up with friends in the early evening or dance the wee hours away at one of our weekend vinyl soul nights. From behind the “60′s alpine chalet” bar we serve: a choice selection of Australian wines, a list of classic traditional cocktails and a collection of quality Australian beers, ales & ciders. We host regular vinyl DJs as well as live performances from local and international touring acts. Check out the gig guide for full details of what’s coming up.

On weeknights we have a cover charge which goes towards supporting artists and the live music scene in Brisbane. On Fridays we sometimes host very special ticketed events and touring artists. On these occasions we’ll have a cover charge for just the early part of the evening,  but never fear, from 11pm – 3am we will be free entry again and our favourite house DJs will be there spinning soul, mod, garage and selected hits. Saturdays are almost always free entry and feature our resident vinyl DJs. Check the calendar to find out what’s on.
