Room 60

Home > Brisbane > Bars
Published March 27th 2011

Tucked away in the Kelvin Grove Urban Village is Room 60, a bar and 'cultural space'. Now ordinarily, accusations of pretentiousness are soon to follow when an establishment calls itself a 'cultural space', but Room 60 manages just the right blend of hipster chic without becoming too big for its boots.

Room 60 (Shop 22, Carraway Street, Kelvin Grove) is a small bar that offers a unique selection of drinks (like tanqueray gin or elderflower spritzers for the designated driver), a small range of bar snacks and a varied program of events. There are performances by spoken word artists, games and film nights and discussions on theory and philosophy, to name a few. There's also the emerging artist initiative, which supports artists of all levels.

You know how in American sitcoms, especially those set in New York City, the twenty-something characters live in apartments that are meticulously decorated in an eclectic, bohemian style? That's what the interior of Room 60 is like orange pleather couches, chintz armchairs, loads of statement vases and lamps, a bookshelf full of romance novels and a wall decorated with shoes. It's kinda like hanging out at your very cool friends share house in West End.

Room 60 is open Monday to Saturday from 4.00pm until midnight. See the website for a schedule of events.
