The legends over at Yard Bird Ale House, your Fortitude Valley and Paddington Friday night staple, have been keeping something very cool under wraps. They’re opening a brand new dive bar in the CBD, known as The Rattler! That’s right, the creative minds behind such mouth-watering eats as mushroom tacos (they’re way better than they sound, trust us) and the Caribbean jerk chicken burger are opening a hella-cool dive bar.
Details are still scarce on this beaut new addition to Brisbane’s thriving bar scene, but here’s what we do know: the Ann St locale will be continuing Yard Bird’s tradition of honouring all things Americana. Think an extensive selection of craft beer options, burgers more than worth the post-meal food baby and even the odd quirky-named cocktail or two.
Since The Rattler is a bona fide dive bar, a relaxed and casual atmosphere is the name of the game. The actual look of the bar remains a mystery but if Yard Bird is anything to go by, we are more than stoked. Now all we need is an outdoor seating area for the perfect boozy Sunday afternoon with the squad.
The Rattler is set to open in the next few months, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for more details. Come on Yard Bird, we’re waiting!
