Much as I love both The Gresham and peanut butter, the similarities perhaps stop here.
The Gresham is an old world bar steeped in heritage which is something very, very, very difficult to find in Brisbane. It boasts the only Heritage Bar License in Queensland, meaning that you know you’re in for an architectural treat with your after work drink.
So what’s on offer at this bar? Let’s take a look.
We ended up having a bit of a gin and tonic taste-off the other night here with different gins, which turned out to be a fantastic way to spend an evening.
Below we rounded off the night with an Ardbeg Uigeadail, which I have not seen in another Brisbane bar. This Scotch Whiskey was maxed out with peat and smoky flavours, and also had lovely wooden notes mixed with the taste of coffee beans. It was a big whiskey and we were pretty excited to finally find a place we could try it.
If a cocktail is more your thing, The Gresham has plenty on offer including the Midnight Rambler (Gin, Lavender, Blueberry, Vermouth, Lemon, Bitters), Strong Arm (Rye, Apricot, Almond, Vermouth, Orange, Bitters) and Love and Squalor (Bourbon, Vermouth, PX Sherry, Picon, Chocolate, Burnt Bitters). There are also boutique beers and ciders, and international wines on offer too.
For an evening out in style, The Gresham is a winner in terms of drinks, ambiance and service.
You get more than crunchy and smooth options here.
