Tucked into the façade of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts is Slingshot, a cosy bar and gallery that now sits in the space formerly occupied by Mana Bar. The new ownership group has done away with the gaming consoles and replaced them with a stellar collection of local art, looking to showcase work in a casual environment. Slingshot will be showcasing work by different artists each month, regularly hosting opening parties within the venue. Opened in mid-October 2015, Slingshot has taken a different approach to many other Fortitude Valley establishments by offering a neat selection of wine, craft beer and spirits. The bar welcomes BYO food and can even arrange free delivery of local cuisine straight to the venue.
