Time Out Brisbane

Check out this incredible tapas bar and set up for a night of fun

Donde caben dos, caben tres - "Where there is room for two, there is room for three". That's the quote surrounding a chalk drawing of a crazy looking Spanish dude with a moustache drinking a big glass of wine on the ceiling at Peasant - a Barcelona style tapas joint where the snacking and the drinking go hand in delicious hand.

There's plenty of outdoor seating if bar perching isn't your thing, and while it might be a pretty authentic facsimile of a Spanish bar and restaurant, they also do something most Spanish bars don't always do well: cocktails. Try a Manzana de Fuego - a hella spicy mix of white rum, chilli, lime and apple juice - or a Don Carlos Smokin' Gun - their version of a Tommy's Margarita, with a paprika salt rimmed glass.

It's a great room, where dimly lit tables sit under chalk murals and wild boar heads. It might please you to learn the snacks are as tasty as the drinks here. Try cloud-like meatballs in tomato sauce with a pile of bread drizzled with olive oil, or ham'n'egg croquettas. Peasant might claim on the menu to be a nod to the wine bars of Barcelona, Madrid, Seville by way of Buenos Aires, but we're happy it's right here in Brisbane.
