Whether you’re craving beaut, sky-high views with a cocktail to hand or sumptuous Japanese and Peruvian flavours, SOKO Rooftop in Fortitude Valley has got you covered.
This new venture from Ross Ledingham (who just last year opened up the mega Lina Rooftop) offers the best of both worlds; make your way up to the 14th floor of the heritage-listed Jubilee Hotel and discover a dazzling rooftop bar. At this lofty height, you’ll of course be treated to panoramic vistas of Brisbane’s skyline, which you can enjoy from the comfort of the rattan chairs. But inside? A stylish restaurant awaits, ready to transport you to South America with its Amazonian decor. The all-green colour scheme reaches from the snazzy leather seating to the dangling foliage, contrasted only by the atmospheric lantern lighting.
To match the interior’s theme, the menu champions Peruvian cuisine, blending the flavours and techniques with those of Japan. The result is a family-style selection of fusion fare, like kingfish ceviche accompanied by aji Amarillo salsa, as well as bao buns and yakitori. For drinks, there’s an extensive list of cracking cocktails, including an impressive 40 different types of pisco sours. Alongside those, you’ll find wine, sake and Japanese whiskies.
