A group of us went here for drinks before dining elsewhere. A classy small bar with great atmosphere, top drink selection professionally served. Ideal place to hang out and enjoy but dress smartly, the venue deserves it.

Description
Hidden behind large wooden doors at Nobby Beach, The Cambus Wallace is a nautical themed rum and whisky bar with a gourmet food offering focused around european share plates. This quaint little haunt is named after the ill-fated Scottish barque that ran aground on Stradbroke Island in 1894, spilling a cargo of scotch, beer and explosives destined for the Queensland gold mines. Vegan and vegetarian dishes available. Live music Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday.
