Let’s be honest. When you think of an evening in Fortitude Valley, your mind usually wanders to the weekend. Barbara has set its sights on changing that mentality. The venue is from the five-person strong team behind The Calypso Boys pop-up restaurant, and offers a refined selection of cocktails, beers, wines and spirits seven nights a week. Although it is a small bar, Barbara has big dreams. The boys have carefully considered each and every element of the space, from hand crafting the interiors themselves to perfecting the brewing of their own signature beer. Barbara will boast several of Brisbane’s best DJs as residents, with a tasteful selection of tunes playing at all times.
