Pokie-free pubs in Queensland – 2015

Click here to jump straight to the pub list


We all know how annoying it can be to go out for a drink, a meal or just to catch up with friends… only to find that the pub you’ve chosen is a pokies pub. There’s something different about the atmosphere in pokies pubs, it’s almost as if they’re not quite paying enough attention to their non-gambling patrons.

Whether you’re a non-gambler, an ex-gambler, or simply don’t want to put up with the lights and the awful beeping music, there are times when it’s nice to be able to get out and not have to deal with the pokies.

With that in mind, I present cyenne.com’s list of pokie-free pubs in Queensland for 2015.

Now, please keep in mind a few points and disclaimers…

I have not personally visited each and every one of these establishments. There are over 500 of them! However, I have cross-referenced them against the list of gaming venues held at the Qld OLGR, and I’m quietly confident that there are no pokies pubs on this list.

There are bound to be pokie-free pubs that I’ve missed, and some pubs that have closed down or changed hands. If you know of any, please let me know and I’ll update the list.

Similarly, let me know about any mistakes you find in the list and I’ll take care of them straight away.

The list is sorted by location first, pub second.
