When a place boasts Peruvian-style share plates, $6 tacos and a custom-built 10-tap copper font pouring an ever-changing array of international brews, it feels like entering bar heaven. Add a dark but never dingy vibe, old-meets-new décor, and a busy location bordering Fortitude Valley and New Farm, and Brisbanites might have just found their new favourite haunt.
Welcome to Bloodhound Corner Bar and Kitchen, the spot that people might not be talking about yet, but they soon will. You might know its Brunswick Street base, which was previously home to the Tibetan Kitchen; however that's where the familiarity ends.
Now, expect open fireplaces and an extensive drinks list, as well as a vibe that lures you in and makes you never want to leave. If you've been to the Burrow in West End, that's the kind of place you're in for (Bloodhound is run by the same folks, after all). There's more to come, too, with renovations still underway on the building's second floor — which will hopefully be unveiled later this year.
