posted by Karlicca Culalic November 16, 2017 0 comments

INCOMING – our busiest month of the calendar is fast approaching! Here are five events you’ll absolutely want to ink into your schedules this week…

#1. A new botanical bar *slash* tropical garden oasis opens up in West End

Brisbane meet Covent Bar, opening TODAY in your West End backyard. It’s a nod to London’s iconic Covent Garden – super-lux, super-vibrant and super lush! Think of this space as a perfect afternoon treat yourself to play catch-up’s with your nearest and dearest and try a selection of Covent’s 100 craft gins. There will be contemporary share-plates as well as Pimms and Aperol Spritz flowing. If you’re feeling adventurous, Covent also has a seasonal house speciality appropriately named The Garden of Eden. It’s a clever mix of Tanqueray gin, absinthe rinse, fresh pressed apple juice, medicinal syrup, charred lime and white pepper tincture. YUM. A haven away from the hustle and bustle of the neighbouring city and BT is all about it!

When: Thursday, 16 November
Where: 142 Boundary St, West End Continue Reading

After its namesake, Bar OTTO is located at 480 Queen Street. Just ride the elevator to the fourth floor and there you will find a charming bar modestly perched alongside a handsome waterfront view with the Story Bridge intact. Pixie lights and all…
