Kiddo

Fortitude Valley

Kiddo is a tiny Kill-Bill inspired bar where Texas meets Japan under a cloak of darkness, through a secret laneway entrance in Fortitude Valley.

Fronted by a shuttered black roller door on Brunswick St, the funky Quentin Tarantino-themed bar has its entry at the rear of California Lane, up a short flight of stairs and through a red London phone box-style door. The mystery doesn't end there though, with more secrets and clues awaiting fans inside.

Step inside past the Kill-Bill artworks to find a stunning black dim lit room that could be the bar version of QT's mind, framed with red and gold lighting. Take a seat at the bar or along the mirrored wall and get set to can indulge in some exquisite Japanese-Texan fusion bar food and cocktails true to the bar's theme.

In a nod to the respective chapters of Tarantino's two-film opus, the delectable bar menu is divided into Volume 1 (food) , Vol 2 (drinks) and Volume 1 credits (a sweet alcohol-infused dessert combo) , complemented by a secret unwritten menu that has its clues hidden around the bar.
