The cat’s out of the bag.

Following a successful launch event on Tuesday 27 September, the secrets of Fortitude Valley’s newest bar and dining space are no longer under lock and key from the public eye.

Guests received details of Tomcat’s address just eight hours prior to the launch party.

“We’ve enjoyed the chilled vibes in Melbourne over the past three years and are keen to bring them Brisbane’s way,” said Tomcat co-owner Chris Denman. “Think house party meets dive bar with a touch of ’80s swag thrown in.”

The night’s biggest unveiling was the sultry Boiler Room bar, a hidden twin to Tomcat’s casual affair. Daily charcuterie boards and cheese plates are among some of the connoisseur tastes paired with The Boiler Room’s smooth jazz tunes and refined drinks.

The brainchild of Chris Denman and Stevie Waite, Tomcat draws inspiration from the couple’s previous businesses, Kerbside, Fourth Wall and Manhattan line.

Tomcat (Level 1, 210 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley) is open from 5pm to 1am on Thursdays and 5pm to 3am on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
