This latest watering hole is poised to open down Burnett Lane in late February and comes courtesy of Martin Lange, the man behind such Brisbane institutes as Cobbler, Savile Row, and Finney Isles. Any seasoned drinker in this town knows that the uniting feature of these three establishments is their absolute mastery of cocktail mixing, and Death and Taxes is expected to be no different.
Seated in a heritage, bunker-style nook, Death and Taxes’ fitout will include comfy booths and an 8-metre long back bar stacked four metres high with approx 800 bottles. Nice and simple, then. The space has capacity for 100 people so it’s set to become a real hotspot for knock offs in the coming months.
Like the other venues in Lange’s portfolio, Death and Taxes adheres to no particular theme beyond providing the best damn beverages in the 4000 postcode. Theirs is a laser focus on quality drinks, so to get things cracking, Lange is recruiting master cocktail-maker Samuel Tripet (who currently works with Lange as a mixer at Finney Isles) to design the cocktail list so expect something in the vicinity of 30 cocktails and around 40 wines on offer, with absolutely no connection to wills and estates.
