Decked out in rainbow fences, sky high street art and a fairy-light donned hills hoist, Ric’s is not only one of Brisbane’s most reliable watering holes but one of the most identifiable too. Littered with character from garage band culture to unique drink creations like The Morgan Freeman, Ric’s is no rooftop bar but rather the place you find yourself rounding out the night every time. Tucked up between one of the wooden smoker’s section tables and the brand-new rainbow coloured Ric’s Diner dishing out late night feeds, you’ll always find someone you know and love at Ric’s.

One of the best things about Ric’s is its next-door neighbour George. A hop, skip and trip through one door gets you onto the largest beer garden on the Brunswick St Mall. Right amongst the action RGs has daily food deals from $8 steaks, $4 tacos and $5 burritos through to live acoustic cover gigs Friday-Wednesdays and un unprecedented amount of karaoke.


This weekend is the annual Valley Fiesta where over 20 unbelievably talented artists will defy genre, push the envelope on volume and have you (LEGALLY) dropping it like it’s hot. See you later dancing ban and welcome back to our collective hips that just don’t lie. Come hear your favourites re-imagined and the new classics being made this weekend at Rics and RGs.
