The Valley Wine Bar

Top choice Wine Bar

in Fortitude Valley

While the tinted glass panels, moody lighting and wine-lined walls set an understatedly elegant scene, this intimate, well-versed wine bar is quintessentially Brisbane in its easy, unpretentious attitude. The focus here is on rare varietals and both low-sulphate and biodynamic wines from Australia and beyond. Simple, high-quality bites include marinated bush olives, toasties and a good-value cheese and charcuterie platter (from $12).

While vino is king here, craft tinnies (canned beer) and cocktails are also available.
