Proud Henry Wine Bar & Ginoteca
With a puffed chest and fanned tail feathers, Henry overlooks Fortitude Valley’s wine bar and gin palace. Henry is, naturally, an antique taxidermy peacock.
The stuffed bird is the signature change for the venue’s transition from moody wine bar Grape Therapy to fresh and fun Proud Henry. The fresh focus is on gin, with nearly 100 varieites behind the bar, from within Australia and around the world.
Proud Henry’s wine list is short and sharp with 12 available by the glass and more by the bottle. Retail takeaways earn a $20 discount on the bottle price. Cheese and charcuterie boards are the only food on offer, but Tara Thai from across the road will deliver food to guests in the 12-seat dining room.
On Friday nights expect live music and keep an eye out for the monthly Gin Junkies event – it’s an opportunity to learn even more about the spirit of the moment.
