Martin Lange describes his new Fortitude Valley speakeasy as “artist Richard Hamilton and David Bowie, feet up on a Chesterfield, drinking Rob Roys by candlelight and playing Uno at 1am”. Count us in. It’s slightly more extravagant than Cobbler, with an Italianate mural, luxe wallpaper and a whopping great chandelier. Whiskey, sherry and amari feature heavily on the 900-bottle back bar, or get those feet up with a classic prepared by dapper uniformed staff. What to order: The Butterscotch Old Fashioned: butterscotch whisky and grappa stirred with spiced manuka honey and macadamia bitters.
