The Sound Garden
The Sound Garden is a stunning, mammoth 2-storey atrium bar in the heart of Fortitude Valley, right next door to the Fortitude Music Hall.
Featuring soaring ceilings with skylights, a striking 7m tall tree strung with 100 UV light bulbs, and grand designer staircase in its midst, The Sound Garden is like a massive indoor beer garden with cosy booths and couches around the outside on each level.
Open 7 days a week and serving brunch on weekends, The Sound Garden also hosts live bands every night from 5.30pm, making the perfect spot for a post work drink and casual bite to eat or a pre-or-post Fortitude Music Hall concert hangout.
In keeping with the music themes, both the food menu and drinks menu are repurposed 33' vinyl records whilst the brunch menu os on a 45, all of which can be found at the tables. Small bites include snapper and prawn spring rolls, popcorn pork, buffalo chicken wings, flash fried calamari and potato wedges, whilst for something more substantial there's a selection of burgers and pizzas with toppings including margherita, capricciosa, reef and beef and southwest chicken.
For drinks, there's a decent selection of beers and wines both on tap and by the glass or bottle and a cocktail list that includes house signatures like the Ginny Hendrix or Smells Like Martini Spirit and classics such as Cosmopolitan, Aperol Spritz, Negroni, Passionfruit Mojito and Espresso Martini.
On Saturday and Sunday punters can drop in for brunch from 9am, with the likes of farmhouse bagels,breakfast gnocchi, fruit toast, wood-fired haloumi, grilled prawn tostada or steak'n'eggs on the menu.
