The Emporium Hotel can justifiably claim to be the most luxurious in Brisbane. The attention to detail is striking, both in the rooms and the public spaces. The cocktail bar is a case in point, everything done as it should be, no half measures taken. There’s a baby grand in the corner and people who know what they’re doing behind the bar. The test of any bar is how it handles the classics and the Emporium does not disappoint on this front. There are some more creative offerings should you be feeling adventurous and an ample wine list as well as the obligatory mocktails for abstainers (not half bad as such things go). The room is as elegant as the rest of the hotel, comfy but stylish chairs, soft, flattering lighting basically a case of all boxes ticked.
