West End’s new pub will look to separate itself from the crowd with a unique ‘superfood’ and beverage offering.
Monty, as the pub is destined to be known by the locals, stands on the corner of Montague Road and Kurilpa Street in West End.
There’s a charcoal rotisserie on the 400-capacity premises, and a menu full of food that goes hand-in-hand with beer, including burgers, buffalo wings, haloumi fries, beer-battered pickles and more.
The venue boasts Brewery Fresh Copper Beer Tanks, serving preservative-free, freshly made beer straight from the source. There’ll be 17 premium and craft beers on tap, as well as local favourites from Newstead Brewing, Green Beacon and Fortitude Brewing, and an extensive wine list with over 19 different vineyards and suppliers and a heavy focus on wines from Queensland and South Australia.
But Monty also caters to health-conscious eaters with a ‘Superfood Menu’ specially designed by a nutritionist featuring rainbow wraps, seed salads, Swiss mushroom burgers on rye and more.
Inside, you’ll see a wall mural by local street artist Stewart Shuker.
Stephen Lee, general manager of The Monty, is setting his sights high, and expects the venue to become an icon.
“The location is key to Monty’s success,” he says.
“We are in the heart of West End’s metropolitan growth zone and next to some of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs. She will be easily distinguished thanks to her unique design and corner position. Monty will be a destination venue for visitors and the local for residents living nearby.
“We want to be able to cater to the young ‘hip’ crowd moving into the area as well as the older demographic who have been here for years. Our menu has something for everyone and our service will be second to none. We have hand-picked our team to make sure they are the best of the best.”
The Montague Hotel (363 Montague Road, West End) will open this Friday 21 April.
