Escape the hustle and bustle of Fortitude Valley and relax over a gin and tonic at Proud Henry on Wickham Street. High, pressed metal ceilings, a historic cellar and cosy courtyard offer a variety of intimate spaces to chill out with friends, all under the watchful eye of the bar's resident peacock – Proud Henry himself. Boasting more than 250 gins and a boutique wine list, there is something to tempt all palates once through the aqua blue façade and into an interior of exposed brick, timber and moody lighting, where sharing a charcuterie board goes hand in hand with a favourite drop. Perhaps kickstart the evening with an Aly in Wonderland cocktail of Gordon’s pink gin, cherry herring, lemon juice and egg white, or Peacock’s Bramble bathtub gin, lemon, ice and a blackberry liqueur float.
A few words from Proud Henry
Proud Henry is a little oasis, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Fortitude Valley – the perfect place to escape from the world and relax over a beautiful gin and tonic or boutique bottle of wine. With high, pressed metal ceilings, historic cellar and cosy fairy-lighted courtyard, it is full of intimate spaces to explore and enjoy, all presided over from a lofty height by our peacock in residence, Proud Henry himself.
Boasting a tremendous 250+ types of gins (a good number of which sourced from our own travels abroad and generally unavailable in Australia), our extensive selection means there is always something new to try. We are all about championing the flavours and botanicals of the spirit itself, so our focus is on creating the perfect gin and tonic, as well as a sharp list of classic and contemporary gin based drinks (martinis, negronis...), so if you fancy a great cocktail, or just a perfect gin&tonic, you're in the right spot.
Our other great love is wine, and we offer a compact but carefully considered list of boutique wines from around the world. We are also licensed to offer wines to take away, so if you are heading to the Valley for dinner, pick up a bottle or two to take with you to one of the many wonderful ethnic restaurants on our doorstep.
Proud Henry also functions as a cellar door every day, for the multi award winning Symphony Hill vineyard.
