La Lune Wine Co
South Brisbane's French-inspired wine bar.
May 13, 2017
When you've already given Brisbane a wolf to spend time with — East Brisbane's The Wolfe, actually — what can you howl at next? Restaurateur Paul McGivern is keeping the theme going with La Lune Wine Co in South Brisbane's Fish Lane.
La Lune doesn't just want you to enjoy a wine while the moon shines — though that's certainly on the menu — this haunt wants to match those tipples with the perfect dishes.
Sure, every wine-serving establishment wants to do the same, but here you'll find a series of dishes that have been handpicked to match specific drops. This is a wine bar, so charcuterie and cheese will also be available, as will oysters and steak tartare (but made from kangaroo).
There's also the option to have a six-course tasting menu ($80) with the additional wine pairings ($70) being an absolute must.
Trading from midday to midnight, La Lune aims to offer Brisbanites a wine bar for all occasions — complete with what's being called an "interactive dining space", which will encourage patrons to chat with staff to get the skinny on the best vino to sip on. We'd go so far as to call this a regular dining space with good service, but we admire a spot of far-reaching conceptualisation.
Design-wise, expect timber aplenty, including 103-year-old reclaimed oak taken from the chateaus and barns of the French countryside, paired with French tiles, small tables and an intimate air will also help bring a taste of Europe to our fair city. If you can't head to Paris, you'll always have South Brisbane.
