Duhig Building, Saint Lucia, Queensland, Australia
BAR MERLO UQ
Every Friday night, 4-8pm, our Merlo UQ cafe is transformed into a licensed bar. With plenty of share plates and food options, you can enjoy knock off drinks with friends to kick start your weekend! Join us for a creamy Espresso Martini, beer, wine, or cider this Friday!
Nestled under the Duhig Building at the St Lucia campus, Merlo Coffee at University of Queensland offers students, university staff and visitors a quick grab and go style, perfect for that much-needed coffee hit between classes.
With covered indoor and outdoor seating, the cafe is also a fantastic place to sit, study and enjoy your fresh espresso with a bite to eat.
For those wanting something a bit more substantial, we also offer a great range of delicious items on our menu (see more below). So, whether you need a quick caffeine fix or some lunch, the Merlo cafe at UQ has got you covered.
Flip for Free!
If you pop in from 2pm to 3pm on Fridays, you can play flip for free with our baristas! Flip a playing card over and if you’ve chosen the right colour, the coffee is on the house!
