The Menagerie is an ambient retro coffee, wine and lounge bar in Kelvin Grove, with a focus on locally sourced beverages both non-alcoholic and alcoholic.
The cosy seating indoors and plant filled benches overlooking the street make this cafe/bar all the more inviting.
During the day, The Menagerie is a chilled space to enjoy coffee, house made chai and pots of loose leaf teas. Food here is simple, healthy fare ranging from vegan salads to organic banana bread to BRKFST pods.
By night, there are regular feature wines and cocktail specials such as strawberry & jalapeno spritz, firey ginge and sweet apple pie.
Behind the bar there are rotating beers on tap as well as plenty of craft bottled beers (including Newstead, Fortitude Brewing Co and Green Beacon) and boutique spirits for the tasting.
In a nutshell - Cafe/bar serving coffee, tea and snacks by day; craft beer, local wine and themed cocktails by night
Nice to know - Happy Hour Mon & Wed: 3-7pm*.
