The glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden era takes centre stage at Ivy-G, a Fortitude Valley bar and restaurant soaked in comfortable and sophisticated vibes. A moody interior with murals of iconic Hollywood stars and pops of colour sets the stage for a food offering best described by the owners as “Australian with a flair of savoir faire”, all crafted using the best local produce. The seasonally shifting menu boasts stand-out options such as slow-cooked spatchcock, vanilla-roasted scallops, mint and shallot-crusted lamb rack and chicken ballotine. Pairing sublimely with the food is Ivy-G’s drinks selection, which includes beers, fine wines and specialty cocktails. The cocktail list features tongue-in-cheek twists on the classics, with the likes of the 50 Shades of Grey Goose and the Vincent Mangogh concoctions enlivening the senses.
