Brisbane’s gay scene isn’t all hustle and bustle, there are several low key options too. Betty’s Espresso and Bar is known as the chill hot spot for the local LGBTQI community. The West End destination operates with an “everybody is welcome” mentality, making every night an easy going and comfortable evening. The pink walls and retro furniture gives it a distinct Grandma-like vibe, but that just adds to the overall experience. Trade starts in the early hours of the morning with expertly brewed coffees and homemade-style cakes, but once the sun goes down the night owls come out to play. Regardless of where you call home, you’ll be hard pressed to leave Betty’s without bumping into somebody that you know.
