The Carrington Hotel – Opening Soon
A brand new public house is in the works on the fringe of Fortitude Valley’s central party precinct, taking over the building formerly home to scruffy boozer Sabotage Social. The Carrington Hotel is the name of the newcomer and is the brainchild of Peter Stark – the owner of The Montague Hotel in West End. The venue’s interior is currently undergoing some aesthetic tweaks, highlighting the building’s existing raw exposed brick, pressed-metal ceilings and polished concrete. With a capacity for 300 patrons, The Carrington Hotel will boast two beer gardens, an on-site bottle shop and an adjoining sports bar. This brand-new venture will reportedly emphasise a multi-faceted offering, headlined by boozy lunches, a signature cocktail and vodka program and a menu of modern Australian eats. Brad Cochrane will be overseeing the bar, which will pour craft beers, global wines and specialty spirits, while executive chef Craig Watson is curating The Carrington Hotel’s menu. Using a custom-built Texas smoker, The Carrington’s Kitchen will dish out whiskey-infused wagyu sirloins, smoked barbecue lamb rump, baked brie with crusty bread, popcorn pork with tomato salsa, share-style platters and much more. Doors are scheduled to officially open in mid-July – rest assured we’ll be giving you a closer look come launch.
