Suburban sips at Phoenix Bar and Lounge

  • Food & Booze
We’ve all had one of those nights where we just want to dress up in our most fancy and suave outfits for a classy night on the town. James Bond tuxes and shiny, sparkly dresses are definitely welcome at the Phoenix Bar and Lounge on Barrett Street in Bracken Ridge. With its array of elegant lounges to choose from and live music by the Phoenix Lounge Bar every Sunday, you’ll be enjoying your meal and drinks in serious style! When entering the Northside’s newest chic venue, choose which nest or cage you’d like to perch on and eat in comfort. The Bird Nest provides a private lounge for up to 40 people, a perfect idea when celebrating that special occasion with family and friends. The Bird Cage on the other hand can seat up to 10 people with the coolest views on the Northside (including a full view of the bar). The menu is based around the concept ‘sharing is caring’, with their gourmet share platters for everyone to feast on. You can choose from a small share plate, which includes crumbed olives stuffed with feta, smoke trout pâté with pickled red onion and toasted sourdough, and parmesan and rosemary chicken bites with chipolata mayonnaise. If you’re a bigger eater and want something a bit more filling and a bit larger to share, then the scrumptious pizzas are here to help! Toppings include field mushroom and gorgonzola, streaky bacon, brie and red currant jelly, and satay chicken with roasted red onion and cashew nuts. The share boards range in sizes and flavours including their divine desserts and charming cheese platters. To wash it all down, have a sip of their incredible selection of designer cocktails includingthe Penfolds Grange and BIN 707. How fancy! Find that old suit of yours and grab yourmonocle and cane, it’s time to eat in Northside style! Hannah Twiggs
