Casa de Loca

Fortitude Valley

Casa de Loca is a colourful rustic Spanish tapas and cocktail bar tucked away on the edge of a quirky European-style piazza of bars and eateries in Fortitude Valley.

Diners can take a seat on the fairylit covered deck or inside the main dining space where a striking mural takes centreplace and partake in a selection of delicious authentic Spanish tapas and a killer cocktail or jug of sangria.

While the food is straight out of the streets of Spain, the extensive list of cocktails run the gamut from classic to house signature, with around-the-world flavours.

Choose from classics like Mojito, Midori Sour, Cosmopolitan, Fruit Daiquiri; French, Lemon Drop or Espresso Martini; or one of the highly recommended House Signatures such as Spicy Mango Margarita, Japanese Slipper, Peach Cosmopolitan, or Cucumber & Elderflower Gimlet. There's also a selection of beers and a house cocktail on tap, spirits and a smattering of wine.

Casa de Loca is not just a place to enjoy cocktails, but the best place in Brisbane for traditional Spanish tapas, including chipirones (sauteed squid with white wine, parsley, garlic and green olive oil), chorizo a la sidra (spicy chorizo sauteed in apple cider), and carne en salsa (beef and traditional tomato salsa).

Paella is also on offer either as a tapas dish, or a larger share pan for 2/3 people - with a choice of seafood, chicken and chorizo or vegan and it also comes highly recommended.
