Brisbane Nightlife in Late July

Just returned from NZ and AUS (Sydney only) to find that I must go to Brisbane (CBD) in late-July. This time I will travel with my father on business (I'm young 38, he's older).

What are the best "spots" for music and "people" meeting. What are the "must dos"? Are there things to "avoid"--too touristy--? Dining recommendations? What is the style of dress for going out to clubs? Any good jazz/blues?

Thanks for any related information on Brisbane.

The Valley on a Friday and Saturday nights near the Main Mall spills out onto the streets everywhere around Brunswick street, All the pubs open up onto the streets, it is really busy, can be a little hectic too, This can be a bit seedy as well so don't wander off alone, not that you would. Also the Normaby hotel is fun and also Caxton Street, All near the city. These 2 places are a bigger range of age, The Valley is a Younger crowd, If there is a football match on the Normanby gets really crowded

My friends and I love Fridays. Its a resturant/bar/nightclub right on the Brisbane river. Its great. Has pretty cheap drinks too.

You have to go to South Bank and have a look at their night markets.

Fridays is a bit of a teenage meat market.... you might want to try somewhere a bit more upmarket like the bowery in the valley, jade buddah, the port office, fringe bar and barsoma or zomba
