Yorks Hollow

When the working day is done, this cafe-turned-bar just wants to have jazzy fun.

When is a cafe more than just a cafe? When it transforms into a vintage-styled bar by night. While the sun is shining, the Bowen Hills spot is known as caffeine fiend central, aka Boutique Espresso. When evening hits on Wednesday through to Saturday, it becomes Yorks Hollow.

If the name conjures visions of a quaint hangout, you're on the right track, vibe-wise — think that, complete with retro furniture, mixed with a jazz-infused speakeasy. Yes, that means you know exactly what type of mood-setting music you'll hear here, including live performances on Friday evenings.

When it comes to satisfying not just your ears but your stomach, expect a tapas menu perfect for sharing with friends over a drink, whether cheese, meat, dips or sun-dried tomatoes take your fancy. Then, you can choose to wash it all down with a craft beer or a glass of wine; however cocktails are Yorks Hollow's specialty. The absinthe sour sounds like the type of drink everyone must try at least once, but if you don't warm to that or anything else on the list, the bartenders will whip up whatever you feel like — just ask.
