I'm a qualified UK lawyer, who emigrated to Australia in May 2012. I have three small children and we've been getting to know Brisbane and making it our home.

Wanting to celebrate a special occasion, birthday, anniversary in style or just wanting a well deserved night out, but not wanting to spend the earth?
Our first stop is to line our stomachs at the Mecca Bah, inside the Emporium, Fortitude Valley. Step into this sultan's palace, telax and enjo north African/Moroccan cuisine .... yum!
You and your friends can relax on the indulgent ottomans or at the ornate bar with a relaxing drink whilst you peruse and choose from the extensive Middle Eastern menu. If you can't choose, why not sample the best dishes Mecca Bah has to offer with its banquet menu. Designed to share with 4 people, this delicious menu will set you back a mere $42.90 per person.
With full stomachs, we head to Cloudland Bar, Fortitude Valley, where I would recommend booking a booth if you are a large party. This allows you the space and privacy of your own area with seating for up to 10 people at a cost of $500, which is fully redeemable against the bar and bar menu.
