One of Brisbane’s smallest, “hidden” bars, John Mills Himself can be found at the back of its Heritage-listed namesake down an Elizabeth Street driveway, and as they say, what is life without the adventure? You’ll be satisfied once you find this bare bricked beauty with its charming penny tile flooring and cosy interior. Café by day with coffee by Bunker and bar by night, it’s a venue that screams buy local as each item on the menu lists its drink miles: beers are sourced from within a 200km drive, wines from no more than 250km and the spirits are Australian made and owned. While sipping on a Purple Rain cocktail of Husk Ink Gin and Robert Channon Sparkling Verdelho, take a moment to appreciate what the walls have seen since 1920, because you’re a part of that history now.
