Thursday is the day! Brisbane is getting a brand-spanking-new bar — and boy does she have that proverbial silver-spoon wedged firmly in her mouth. From the mind of entrepreneur Leigh Metzeling, Capulet is a no-expense-spared high-end cocktail bar for the glitterati built on the old Alloneword site.
"Imagine watching a fashion show with a cocktail in hand, in a trendy but comfortable atmosphere — we think Brisbane will fall in love with the venue," says Metzeling. Yep, we're backing him.
But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? (You didn't really think you were getting out of this quote free, did you? Fools). Borrowing some classical clout from Shakespeare (slash Luhrmann), the bar's four owners are looking to flood Brunswick Street with champagne and inject some decadence into after-hours Brisvegas. So, it may be time for Brisbane boys to retire those nipple flaunter-singlets, look into collared clothing options (or chain-mail; I am not 100 percent clear on how many fish tanks there will be) and get a taste for the finer things with the Capulet(s).
