The Skukum Lounge


The Skukum Lounge is Brisbane’s first bar within a bar – a tiny cabin located at the edge of the groovy alpine woods themed cocktail lounge beloved as The Junk Bar.

And like all good cabins found deep in forests worldwide, The Skukum Lounge is the ideal live music venue, a place where patrons can shut themselves off from life and wallpaper trees and experience some great local talent in cosy intimate surrounds with snowy mountain views.

The cocktails, vinyl, hospitality and beehives are the same and the home away from home ambience carries over to what is destined to be Brisbane’s best kept secret music lounge in the unlikely breeding surrounds of Ashgrove suburbia.

Nice to know: Icy blasts from the aircon make it a perfect summer retreat and overflow catchment from older sibling The Junk Bar.
