Fitz & Potts
Fitz and Potts is a bright retro character-filled Nundah rooftop bar that has a fantastic community vibe and encapsulates all that is good about Brisbane.
Located on a Nundah village street corner, Fitz and Potts occupies the postwar flat above the cafe below and comprises a labyrinth of funky nanna style rooms with a wraparound astroturf roof garden.
Inside Fitz and Potts, the rooms, adorned with macramé and shell hangings, fringed lamps, antique side tables and wallpaper have kept their original features like ornate cornices, polished floors and frosted glass window panes.
Meanwhile the roof garden, which has its own bamboo bar, is awash with 1970s patio furniture, pot plants, pink flamingos and beach umbrellas and even has a stingless bee hive.
The driving force behind Fitz and Potts are the delightful Brett and Cassie, two ex-teachers whose warm larger than life personalities permeate the place and each visitor (both 2 and 4 legged) is welcomed like a guest into their home.
The dynamic duo have created what would have to be the Brisbane bar where you can have the most fun whilst subscribing to sound eco and sustainability principles. The entire drinks list is curated from boutique Australian breweries, distilleries and winemakers and the food menu sourced from local producers, (images of which are intermittently projected onto a rooftop screen to enhance connectivity between consumers and growers).
Drinks-wise, 6 local craft beers are available on tap and cocktails feature a daily list – check the board behind the bar - with choices like Mojito, Sloe Gin and Vermouth Martini, Espresso Martini, Whisky Sour and Spiked HRVST St Fresh Juice. Of the non-alcoholic thirst-quenching options, there’s a range of CAPI sodas, HRVST St juices.
The entire food menu at Fitz & Potts is plant-based, with Bar Snacks such as olives, wasabi peas, fried lotus root chips, curry puffs and edamame. Small plates include gyoza, bao, sliders, mixed pastry parcels and crispy nori and smoked sesame rolls.
A selection of Share Plates are almost a meal in themselves. Try the house signature jaffle platter or the cheese platter or one of their delicious pizzas. for those who donlt want to share there are also jaffles and well as a beefy burger.
There's also a dessert jaffle and churros for afters.
