The Wickham

Fortitude Valley

Brisbane icon and Richard Gailey-designed historic pub The Wickham peddles everything from cafe fare by day to great cocktails and upmarket bar food by night.

The Wickham Fortitude Valley

Decked out with funky light globes and lanterns, one of the Valley's oldest hotels features a chic cosmopolitan bar fitout, a collection of leather lounges and a courtyard filled with lemon and orange trees and fresh rosemary gardens.

With at least five spaces to chill out in, the majestic venue pulls in crowds of people who want to mingle out the front or at the long tables and benches in the open courtyard area. The joint is also a drawcard for small groups of friends who gather for conversation in the quiet and dim-lit pockets with low chairs.

In addition to healthy smoothies, salads, toasties and sandwiches, The Wickham offers great pub style tapas after hours. While it caters for paleo, vegetarian and gluten free diets, it is the likes of faves such as the Korean Hot Dog that are a match for the great selection of beers on tap.

The piping hot and tasty Chicken Karagee and Salt and Pepper Calamari go down a treat with the Strawberry and Vanilla Mojito while the Margarita Pizza is a popular late night snack.

Patrons can take a peak at what the chefs are cooking up in the converted shipping container for an idea of the daily mouthwatering specials before ordering the next round of tapas and drinks at the bar.
