With such a wealth of enticing bars and restaurants, the prospect of making it all of the way down Fish Lane can seem pretty daunting at the start of the night. With so many creative, colourful cocktails on offer, we’ve put together a list of five to help guide you on your journey through Fish Lane.
Chu The Phat – The Forbidden Kingdom
Welcome to two storeys of exciting Asian street food that demands an equally exciting cocktail to wash down your duck buns and pork and kimchi spring rolls! For a hit of bitter bliss, try The Forbidden Kingdom – gin muddled with ginger, lime and mint, shaken then topped with house ginger beer.
La Lune Wine Co. – Negroni
If you’re on the prowl for the perfect glass of red, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more impressive wine list than that of La Lune Wine Co., but the talented team behind the bar certainly know their way around a fine cocktail too! In keeping with La Lune Wine Co.’s sophisticated style, go for a classic negroni made with gin, Campari and vermouth rouge.
Billykart Bar – Watermelon Crush
Strategically positioned alongside West End’s popular Billykart restaurant, Billykart Bar is the perfect stop for a quick burger and drink as you tour the sights of Fish Lane. Since you’ve stopped by, it’s time to try a watermelon crush. Think white rum, elderflower liqueur, fresh watermelon, lime and mint – fresh!
Maker – Økar spritz
Highly regarded as one of the best places to go for a cocktail in Brisbane, Maker’s always pushing the envelope and busting out unique, seasonal creations. You should probably just talk to bartender to find out what suits your particular tastes, but an Økar spritz made with Applewood Distillery’s unique Økar amaro is guaranteed to blow your tastebuds away.
The Next Episode – Hendricks Lamar
This hidden hip-hop speakeasy packs plenty of surprises when you make it past the pastel barbershop exterior. You won’t find a better drink to cap off your trip down Fish Lane than a Hendricks Lamar – Hendricks gin, aloe vera reduction, freshly pressed citrus, house made syrup and mint.
Don’t wait another moment start sipping on one of these delectable cocktails.
