The lowdown

The End provides a chilled social hub in Brisbane’s wild west end, but the converted video store with a vintage vibe is also a focal point for Australian natural and minimal intervention wines by serving as home base for Chasing Rainbows Wine Co.

The regular’s tip

The monthly Wine Wankers tasting session is a fun, non-pretentious natural wine exploration, hosted by Local sommelier. If that’s too much, just enjoy the awesome happy hour from 4pm until 6pm each day.

Providing a definitive note on inner urban cool, The End captures a funky loungeroom vibe, complete with vintage films and an oddball collection of dangling light bulbs and potted plants. Taking over a former video store on Vulture St in 2011, The End was among the early wave of Brisbane small bars to emerge and has maintained a solid following due to its lack of pretentions.

The wine list boasts a frequently changing selection of all Australian small producers, with about 60 choices of natural and minimal intervention wines, and about 10 available by the glass. It’s also the home base for Chasing Rainbows Wine Co, an independent, boutique online wine store selling Australian natural wines, which is also now producing wine under the Chasing Rainbows label.

They’re also serious about beer at The End, with home brew ales on tap, a boutique cider and exclusive pours of local Bacchus Brewing products (such as a German-style pilsner with notes of passionfruit, or a chocolate- and coffee-infused stout). They also have a talent for incredible cocktail creations, especially featuring rum – such as the Lucky Number 13, being a heady blend of spiced rum, white cocoa, cold drip coffee and maple syrup.

Holding on 60 people at capacity, with most at long tables on high stools, The End is cosy rather than claustrophobic, helped by a comforting soundtrack. “We love our music – it inspires all we do,” says Nick Goding, one of The End’s four owners. Vinyl and digital DJs are featured four nights a week – playing everything from jazz, soul, funk, groove, house, electronic to trip hop and Hip-Hop – with live acoustic music each Tuesday night, and bands on Thursday nights playing jazz, folk and indie styles.
