Zuri burst onto the Brisbane nightlife scene in 2008 with a glittery showbiz explosion: this was clearly a venue that aimed to court the city’s VIP crowd. Replacing old Fortitude Valley favourite, the Sunbar, this new incarnation is would-be decadent and opulent to the point of being over the top. The furnishings have a faux-antique grandeur and the fabrics are rich and textured; red, black and gold are the dominant colours understated it isn’t. The kitchens serve excellent Japanese cuisine and the bar stocks a huge selection of wines. Cocktails are made using the most premium ingredients. This place may scream where others whisper, but if you’re looking for a big, bold, glam night out, Zuri is a must. Be sure to dress accordingly and you’ll have a dazzling night.
