I found a gem of a venue last Friday night. A wine bar where a local jazz band was playing, right in the heart of Brisbane.

E'cco Bar is in the basement of the bistro, accessible from the top of Adelaide St (Valley end). They offer a wide variety of wine, and food can be delivered to your table from the main restaurant upstairs.

The David Bentley Trio were playing on the night. I'd been invited by a friend of mine who's pretty tapped into the music scene, and there were keys, a beautiful upright bass and the obligatory drum kit. The tunes were not too mellow, nor too upbeat, and although the lighting was a little bright, the atmosphere was delightful.

I was most surprised to see you could purchase a glass of sparkling shiraz by the glass. It wasn't my choice on the night, but I will head back soon and give it a try.

Truly a bar for grown-ups to enjoy a glass of wine and appreciate some lovely music, and with a Friday night jazz residency, you should give it a try. I'll be back!

Just booked dinner in the restaurant for our anniversary with the plan to have a drink in this lovely little bar and listen to the great music beforehand....however, sadly and unexplainably, they apparently don't have jazz here anymore... No reasons given. Rethinking the whole dinner venue idea now...
