Urban Cocktail Trail: Fortitude Valley
Track down cocktails like Pokémon at this self-guided tour of CBD bars.
UPDATE, AUGUST 23: Urban Cocktail Trail: Fortitude Valley has been postponed from Saturday, August 28 to Saturday, October 9. This article has been updated to reflect that change.
By now, every Brisbanite should've heard of the Urban Wine Walk, aka your excuse to mosey around town and drink vino at various bars across a mighty fine afternoon. Prefer hopping around a particular patch of the city to drink cocktails instead? Meet the Urban Cocktail Trail, which is exactly what it sounds like.
This time, from 2–6pm on Saturday, October 9, you'll make your way around the Fortitude Valley to sip cocktails. Dutch Courage Officer's Mess, The Parlour, Bisou Bisou, The Prince Consort and Gerard's Bar are some of the places involved, with the list topping out at nine bars. They'll each be making their own special cocktail for the occasion, so you'll basically be venturing to them all and catching those different drinks like Pokémon.
Tickets cost $79.99 and are on sale now, with places limited. You can choose where you kick off, and you'll get a glass of bubbles and something to eat at your initial port of call. After that, you'll be able to redeem six vouchers for six mini cocktails at whichever participating places you feel like visiting.
