Must Visit: Fitz & Potts
A dog friendly suburban cocktail bar with a rooftop? The description of Fitz & Potts is my definition of a perfect Brisbane bar. DOG FRIENDLY! Converted from an old Queenslander house, Cassie Potts and Brett Fitzpatrick decided to open a bar where they would want to hang out.
While the inside is dominated by velvet and macramé, adorned with kitsch trinkets and unique retro furniture, the wrap around balcony feels like a cross between a garden party and a tiki bar. Cassie and Brett’s two dogs lounge on the deck, in amongst locals enjoying Australian craft beer beer and cocktails.
‘We built this bar for the locals,’ Brett explained. The old adage says build it and they will come – and they have. While it’s only been open since November, Fitz & Potts is already a favourite haunt.
Between screening movies on the balcony, Cassie and Brett are running Meet the Maker events to give locals a chance to really connect with the stories behind the micro-brewed beer, organic wines and Australian craft spirits they enjoy. Stay tuned for more news on those events in coming months.
So if you ever find yourself on that side of town, pay them a visit and enjoy an Ink & Tonic or a cold craft beer curled up in a soft overstuffed armchair – good times.
