Where’s the best place to watch the final in Brisbane, and what time will it be on?

Thanks!

I think kick off is 5am. And either the Treasury Casino in the city centre or the Pig N Whistle pub in the West End.

There is a Brisbane OzSpurs group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/18965072532/ (it's closed so you'll have to request..)
Thanks, Danners. I was thinking of the Pig but not sure they’ll have licensing til dawn. Wherever I go I imagine Pool fans will outnumber us but recall a pretty even split of Spurs and Chelsea for the 2008 final. I’ll join that FB group you suggested.

I am not sure about their licensing. I've been there for league games and we were able to buy drinks until FT and then were kicked out sharply. 2am or so, ish.

For the later matches, the 7.45 UK games, the Pig N Whistle on Queen Street has sometimes been open and serving at that time. No idea why they can and others can't.

The Star Casino in Gold Coast will also be showing it. The local supporters club will be there, too. I am tempted to go to that for the atmosphere but I really don't like casinos and the timing keeps me thinking it'll be easier to watch at home instead.

Ditto re atmosphere vs comfort of home and disliking casinos.

I phoned the Pig. They’re showing it at Riverside and Queen Street but won’t have a licence. Probably watching it at home with my dog then, though I’ll continue vacillating til the actual day. 😊
