Death & Taxes

Brisbane CBD

Death & Taxes is a gorgeous old-world cocktail lounge and wine bar tucked away in Brisbane's oldest laneway, Burnett Lane.

Look out for the Grim Reaper facing off with the lions on the walls of the courtyard outside then step through the grand, carved wooden door with the lion knockers and tiled 'welcome mat' to find one of the city's most ambient bars.

For Death & Taxes is from the same canny folk who own Finney Isles and Savile Row and West End's Cobbler. Like the latter two, this one is a whiskey lovers dream with hundreds of whiskeys available, along with some 70 gins, 40-50 rums and other premium spirits.

Patrons at Death & Taxes can opt pull up a leather bar stool at the window, along the decorative bar or retreat to the sunning vintage lounge out back with its crystal chandelier, wood panelling and 100-year-old polished floorboards and take a seat at one of the old Hollywood-style curved leather booths.
