Poco – Spanish for ‘little’ – is a cosy corner tapas and cocktail bar nestled at the entrance of California Lane in Fortitude Valley. The concept comes from the operators behind fellow laneway bruch concepts Froth on Brunswick and No. 5 Cafe, though Poco itself is more of a late afternoon and early-evening concept. The tapas menu boasts the likes of fried-chicken baos, crumbed mushrooms stuffed with brie, cider-glazed chorizo, popcorn cauliflower, and salt-and-pepper calamari, while cheese platters instead (loaded with your choice of dairy and a cluster of tasty accoutrements) are on offer for those more keen to graze. Poco’s cocktail list features a clutch of seven signatures and ten classics, while cocktail jugs are ideal for clinking glasses with friends. Beer from Green Beacon caters to the craft crowd, while the curated wine list blends drops from Australia and further abroad.
