“Fly me to the moon and fuel me up at Sky Room. This second venture for the Bowery owners embraces Brisbane’s sub-
tropical climate and channels all that’s good about the ’50s. The vibe is cool summer holiday combining the best of modern mixology, top-shelf spirits, just-pressed juices and cool twists in damn near perfect proportions.”
