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.

Book a space at Proud Henry for your next party or event –  for intimate gatherings our cellar, courtyard and front bar can all be reserved, or for something a little grander, we can offer exclusive use of the venue. Throw in one of our (in)famous gin tastings and you will be well on your way to an unforgettable night. Check out our functions page for further details.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
