What do you get when some of Brisbane hospitality’s finest team up with a pair of acclaimed designers to craft a memorable drinking and dining project? You get Fredericks, a pop-up wine bar currently operating in West End. Paul McGivern and Bailee Dewes of La Lune Wine Co and Corella fame have joined forces with Daniel and Amelia Miletic of One Fish Two Fish and interiors and production experts Jon Dowding and Chrissy Feld on the Fredericks concept, which can be found nestled at the top of Factory Lane in West Village. Named after Frederick Peters, the founder of the ice-cream factory that forms the heart of the West Village precinct, the pop-up bar offers an expertly curated selection of wine, craft cocktails and beer, as well as a menu of cheese and charcuterie supplemented by morsels from West Village’s The Garden Pantry (Salt Meats CheeseCheeky Poké, and Mr Bunz). The open-plan space has been designed by Jon and Chrissy (who boast Mad Max, Gold Coast Tourism Corporation and Hostelworld’s viral Sand Hostel, and Libertine Parfumerie in their design portfolio) and draw inspirations from the ice-cream experience – the colour, flavour and even the packaging – evoking joy and nostalgia simultaneously. Fredericks is here for a good time, not a long time. Be sure to check it out before it wraps up in a few months time.
