Come drink local with us

Welcome!

Jumping Goats is a small family-run neighbourhood bar in Margate, on the Redcliffe Peninsula just north of Brisbane. We're a local father and daughter team passionate about making and sustaining human connections, and we've created a warm, cosy, welcoming space for you to enjoy.

We're also passionate about quality local products, and in supporting other family-run businesses, so we're proud to present the best we can find in locally-made craft beer, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages in our small bar. There's a whole lot of talent around us and so many of us have no idea!

Drinks

Our wide variety of craft beer is primarily from Brisbane and surrounds. Much of our wine was created in the Granite Belt region in Queensland. We have a wide range of spirits, including gins, whiskies, rums and vodka, primarily from Australia. We source from as near as we can because we believe in the quality we produce, in minimising our carbon footprint, and in supporting our local economy.

Our drinks list shows what's on tap right now (we regularly rotate the beers), or you can check out our wine or maybe our gin selection, or see if we make your favourite cocktail!

Food

We have a wide range of bar snacks including locally made jerky and peanuts, plus cheese and crackers, and you're welcome BYO food from our excellent neighbouring takeaways or from home (need a place for a wet-weather picnic?). Practically next door to us we have delicious Kob's Thai Kitchen and fabulous Bella Sicilia Pizza and Pasta.

Entertainment

We have live music every Thursday night, Saturday night, Sunday afternoon/evening. Keep an eye on our What's On page for details. Plus board games, card games (anyone for a round of Exploding Kittens?), and something that looks suspiciously like but is definitely not for legal reasons jenga.

Quite frankly, there's nothing quite like us on the Peninsula!

Available for functions of up to 60-70 people (60 seated), please contact us to discuss.

We're pet and family friendly!

About Us

Nigel and Peta
Photographer: Dominika Lis

Jumping Goats Bar is owned and run by father and daughter team Nigel Scanes and Peta Thames. Nigel is a Redcliffe Peninsula local who's been living here for over 30 years, a motorcycle enthusiast who loves a good chinwag, and he's long been on the lookout to start his own business. Peta has been lucky enough to live and travel overseas and in the process taste many of the world's premier wine regions, and firmly believes Queensland produces wines that hold their own with the best of them. Queensland also now produces some of the best beer in the country, and Peta is excited to bring this local talent to Margate.

We're supported by Mandy Scanes and Will Thames. Without their love and ongoing support, this project would never have made it as far as it has.

Search for 'jumping goats videos' to understand the inspiration behind our name. We're hoping you'll have as much fun at our bar as those little creatures have!
