Make your way to Maker

Fish Lane’s favourite hole-in-the-wall came home a winner from the recently-held Australian Bar Awards. Nabbing the award for Queensland Cocktail Bar of the Year, Maker follows in the well-dressed footsteps of neighbouring sibling Gauge, leaving nothing to chance and doing everything right.

The cocktail gong is well-deserved; the succinct but diverse menu features top-notch concoctions focusing on premium seasonal ingredients including honeycomb, offbeat botanicals like tarragon, and locally-distilled spirits. If cocktails aren’t your thing, there’s carefully-selected Aussie and international wines, and an über-cool beer selection.

Don’t be fooled walking down the lane, because size does not equal might with this 18-seat gem; on the food front, top-quality charcuterie, cheese, and house-made pickles (as well as some next-level toasties) round out the offerings from the classiest little bar in town.

Next time you’re seeking a new favourite cocktail, looking to impress a date, or enjoy a beer in the serenity, head to Fish Lane’s Maker for an award-winning experience.
