There’s a reason this bar has been voted the best in Brisbane. It eclectic a layout that just works well. A must visit. There has been rumours of a developer knocking the building down. A real shame for one,of the best places in Brisbane

Great option of beers, wines and cocktails with easy food options to accompany a drink. Can sit inside or on verandah area outside. Quaint, cute and quirky. Really worth visiting

This place has a really comfortable and relaxing vibe, and very well made cocktails. Plenty of choice on the menu for vegans and vegetarians.

Love it. Brisbane has really grown up in recent years, and joints like Fitz & Potts are just super. Never change.
