Altitude at Foresters
Altitude at Foresters is a swish rooftop cocktail bar that is pairing incredible vistas across Fortitude Valley with luxe bottle-service vibes and modern Australian bar bites. Located six floors above opulent eatery and bar Foresters, Altitude is one part lively nigh-time hangout and one part leisurely cocktail lounge, with vistas stretching over the entertainment precinct’s streetscape to the Story Bridge. The bar itself has been furnished with custom pieces, ranging from low-set couches, four eye-catching white-and-navy cabana-style lounges (which can be booked for private soirees), a strip of chic lounges running along the Alfred Street side and stool seating along the railing bench. The cocktail menu boasts the same 18 cocktails as Foresters below, each imbued with Australian ingredients. Bolstering the drinks selection is a clutch of Australian wines and craft beer available bottled or off tap. Executive chef Peter Popow has crafted a menu that focuses on shared grazing plates and small bites instead of sit-down fare. Morsels include chicken stuffing croquettes with cranberry puree, salt-and-pepper-dusted calamari with lemon myrtle aioli, pepper-seared wallaby carpaccio and a selection of stone-baked pizzas.
