Sure, it's got an upbeat name, but Heya Bar looks like the kind of dive Blade Runner's Deckard would stumble into on a particularly stormy night. The Asian-themed drinking den occupies the basement of the old Sun newspaper building in Fortitude Valley and it's moodily lit, plastered with torn retro posters and features billiard tables and pinball machines. The kitchen offers pan Asian street food including sushi and sashimi, plus some quirky offerings like cheeseburger spring rolls.

Let’s be real here, Saturday night isn’t the only night of the week we need a drink these days. Sometimes we’re ready to hit the tequila by Tuesday. Some of us have a four day week and are ready to party by Thursday (haters gonna hate). And for hospo workers, Monday is where the weekend is at.

Well there’s no need to drink alone on the couch anymore, because Fortitude Valley bar, Heya, is open and pumping with Asian street food, cocktails, pool tables and pinball from Monday to Saturday.

Venture down the stairs at 351 Brunswick Street and you’ll find yourself in this warren of hidden bars, dark corners and cozy booths. Whether it’s punchy cocktails, a late night feed, or a casual (or way too competitive) game of pool, Heya has you covered, 6 nights a week.

Feeling the Monday madness? Head in and take out your frustrations on a retro pinball machine or the black 8 ball at the pool tables, with free games all night. Tuesdays are for anyone who spent wayyy too much on shots on the weekend, with half-price street eats from 6pm. That’s $2 for an epic cheeseburger spring roll (so order 10?), $4.50 for a pile of karaage popcorn chicken and $4 for a soba noodle salad if you’re trying to make up for a greasy Sunday breakfast. At prices like those, you can even spring for a cocktail. - See more at:

Better not hit the drinks too hard though, because you’ll need all your brain power for Wednesday trivia. With gig tickets and dining vouchers up for grabs, you’ll want to load up on espresso martini slushies (with cream and sprinkles) before hand to make sure you’re wide awake and thinking hard. Less of a thinker, more of a beer drinker? Head in on Thursdays for Asian craft beer night and try something a little exotic.

You could be forgiven for wanting to hit the sack early by the time the weekend rolls round but the fun times don’t stop at Heya. Rock out to live music and get your groove on the dance floor, or just make it your mission to hunt down each of the bars hidden around the venue, whether it’s the subterranean Bar Lonely for a specialty Old Fashioned, the sophisticated Yama Bar or the madness of the Kohaku Bar.

Before you know it you’ll be addicted to those espresso martini slushies and cheeseburger spring rolls just like us, and visiting the Fortitude Valley bar more than you’d like to admit. Heya Bar is open six nights a week from 6pm until late. -
