Is it just us, or has Fortitude Valley stealthily re-claimed its rightful place in this world as the top night spot in Brisbane? For a minute there, the bright city lights had temporarily distracted us, but with new bar openings and more choice than you can shake your tiny purse at, the Valley’s back as top dog.
More than just another new bar in Brisbane, Woolly Mammoth Alehouse pulses as the new heartbeat of the Valley. A few steps across the threshold of this new watering hole will bring you face to face with the doorman (a looming statue of a one-eyed namesake) before a lush and vibrant beer garden lures you upstairs to the Garden Bar.
It wouldn’t be much of an alehouse if there weren’t a plethora of brews; their Craft Bar alone offers 31 different craft beers (on tap!) to please the masses, as well as wine and a slew of cocktails for those wanting to go the whole hog.
All those dranks make for hungry work? Woolly Mammoth has curated an extensive menu of meaty chow from subs and hoagies to pizza and ribs: everything you need to get in touch with an ancestral desire to eat with your entire face a la Fred Flintstone. Did I mention Woolly Mammoth also serves five different types of fries? FIVE. This is bar food with some grunt!
But drinks and munch form only two thirds of Woolly Mammoth’s rep as a thumping live music and kickass party venue. Release your dormant Neanderthal and have yourself a rowdy stomping ground in front of the Mane Stage. Alternatively, conserve your energy by lounging on one of the vintage Chesterfields and nod along with whatever the bass player is doing.
If you were looking for somewhere to host your next bash, Woolly Mammoth is always up for a party. Comprised of spaces ranging from cosy to cavernous, the craft taps, kitchen and ambience at Woolly Mammoth are perfectly equipped for any sized function or gathering.
If you’re looking for a Brisbane party venue that will improve your street cred, head down to Woolly Mammoth and feed your beastly appetite with a late night romp. Just don’t get crushed in the stampede, ragers.
