20 Constance , Fortitude Valley QLD 4006
UP on Constance rooftop bar is a cool stylish oasis atop the Valley's funky TRYP Hotel, with views forever and access via its own elevator at the rear of a graffiti'd laneway. Sleek and modern, the spacious glass-sided venue features 1970s patterned lime, lemon, orange and sky blue banquette seating, a giant inlaid Up-shaped cabinet of first pour champagne Veuve Clicquot and washrooms with street art by Rone-decorated basins, Morissey handwash and views to sunset and the Mt Coot-tha TV towers. A retractable roof and bi-fold windows make it an all- weather venue sheltered on cold inclement nights and pure bliss on the endless sultry summer evenings for which is has been designed. From all areas of the bar, there's a unique vista to be enjoyed, from the fig trees and tin roofs of old New Farm and Teneriffe Hill, the chimney tops of the GPO, a tower of the Story Bridge, the gothic facade of St Patrick's and the multiple new apartment blocks and saw-tooth roof factories scattered around the Valley. Like the venue, the bar menu is a fusion of class and creative, with an immaculate drinks list that features fruity cocktails to share like The Pelican Hotel, inspired by the art deco streets of Ocean Drive, Miami and the legendary margaritas served therein: tequila, fresh watermelon, fig and grapefruit shrub and a pinch of salt or the Tryp House Punch Belvedere pink grapefruit, Apricol Peach Liquer and passionfruit pulp served in a carafe with 4 wine glasses. Heading the Sparkling list are first pour champagne Veuve Clicquot while first pour bubbly Moet Chandon, with the rest ranging from Chandon's Brut or Brut Rose up to Dom Perignon. Draught beers and signature cocktails available each Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Let our tasty, tapas style share menu tempt those tastebuds.
