During the week I had the pleasure of being invited to a 'press launch' to a new bar opening in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. I know, very fancy.

Our Place was conceived by some of Brisbane's best nightlife/entertainment professionals, who after many years of running and promoting other establishments, have finally gone all in and opened their own bar. A mixture of your grandma's old living room, your brother's 80s bedroom and your dad's basement bar... Our Place is a nostalgic home away from home.

Our Place is a great concept, modelled after a home, the bar has these cool pockets of spaces with different vibes all fitted out with antique furniture. With two different staircases leading you to different areas of the bar, Our Place is a great weeknight hangout. Finally, a bar where you can just sit and chill out in (a rare site for somewhere like Fortitude Valley).

Another great surprise on the night was the opening band at Our Place, Spacifix. I've heard of these guys from friends, but never really heard their songs/seen them live. So I was very happy to finally catch them on Thursday. Super fun and talented group from West Auckland, New Zealand (these guys are huuuuuuuge). They covered  some brilliant tracks but also have really good originals. Take some time to check them out on their Facebook page.

It was a great night out, with fun times had and catching up with Brisbane's press crowd. Including a random but awesome bump in with Brisbane's PR gal pals. It was great to sit and chat with these lovely ladies and quote "Shit Fashion Girls Say At NY Fashion Week" for most of the night ;)

Thanks for the invite Our Place (and Lily!)
