Found this place very interesting. Had soo much kool and fascinating art and decor. Most interesting was distinguishing male and female toilets lol. Had a huge selection on drinks and the service was friendly.

Looks very much the same inside, but now more of a pub. Okay place and has some decent beers, and nice staff, but not a favourite.

Nice place that retains its historic charms and rustic interiors. It has a wide selection of cocktails, beers and spirits for alcohol lovers. They have an extensive list of rums as well. Food is not bad, though the juicy rotisserie chicken can be less saltier...More

Friday night out at Fortitude Valley. Found a great place with great music. The band was fantastic and the venue was so comfortable with lovely soft chairs and chandeliers. Drinks were well priced also. Will definitely party on there again on a Friday night.
