Twig & Berry
Shop 9, 92 Commercial Rd, Newstead, Queensland 4006
Newstead’s Twig & Berry is Brisbane’s quirkiest venue to enjoy a drink with friends under the stars. Nestled in a basement off Commercial Rd, the one-time union office has been made over to create an ambient setting worthy of its ‘hidden gem’ description. Ankle-level signage is the only clue to the secret drinking HQ, located in the centre of the Newstead’s famed craft beer crawl.
Tip-toe down the discreetly-gated entrance to find the atmospheric open air courtyard, finished with toasty heaters, bean bags and a fairy-lit tree illuminating the outdoor wall. Hanging copper Parisian lightshades above the bar and a spacious cellar lounge featuring a ceiling of antique doors add retro interest to the funky new venue. Discerning cocktail drinkers will be delighted to discover a selection of much-loved classics and bottled cocktails, including colourful pitchers of sangria. The highly recommended House Cocktails are where skill and experimentation collide, and are the result of the expert bartenders’ imagination. Otherwise, take your pick from the extensive range of drinks on offer, including 20 ciders and craft beers and 20 Australian and international wines available.
The Twig & Berry is open seven days a week until midnight, so there is no reason to be hasty with your drink of choice. Although an official bar menu is still yet to be determined, visitors can expect to find locally-made spiced nuts and mixed share platters available in weeks to come.
