Located in the prime position of Brunswick St in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, Press Club is a steampunk vibe bar focusing on cocktail finesse and live music. Owned by the mammoth Brisbane Katrarzyna Group, Press club has been around since 1998.
High ceilings give way to a multitude of interior delights with heavy stools adorning the long bar and metal chandeliers lighting the bar top. Couches are spread around the bar, with cushions, carpeted walls and a full opening window to the street, allowing both a cool breeze in the Brisbane heat and people watching.
Press Club offers a range of classic and signature cocktails, with willing bartenders who work to your whims. Beer, wine and spirit drinkers are also catered to, with the bar offering a multitude of options. Service is at the bar with live music throughout the week ranging from busy R&B Tuesday nights with a full band to jazz and DJs on weekends.
Areas can be booked upon request as well as an enclosed VIP area stationed right next to the bar, with the option for table service. The bar also holds a smoking area, an addition which helps punters navigate the liquor laws and license issues prevalent in the sunshine state.
Food is available from Tuesday to Sunday, with wood fired pizza, burgers, rotisserie, salads and share plates serving till late to fulfill those hunger cravings. Vegetarian and vegan food offerings are also available.
Being open all week and till late every night, Press Club is held close to the hearts of many hospitality workers and patrons alike.
