The Nixon Room

Fortitude Valley

The Nixon Room is a stunning intimate little bar annexed to Essa Restaurant and with a separate entrance down a fig-lined Fortitude Valley laneway.

The Nixon Room Fortitude Valley

With no signage out front, it's one of those in-the-know bars, which can otherwise be reached via another door tucked away to one side in the restaurant. Once inside, patrons can take a seat at one of the leather booths partitioned by marble.

The Nixon Room Fortitude Valley

A vision of marble and timber with leather seating, the cosy dimlit designer space is the go-to for premium wines and spirits, cocktails (with a focus on martinis) and delectable bar snacks, including desserts from the restaurant next door.

Need to know - The Nixon Room is in soft opening phase in February and will be operating fully in the coming weeks.
