Within the four walls of The Fortitude Music Hall, lies The Outpost. Brisbane’s newest 300 capacity multipurpose venue that will feature a diverse program of artists, an impressive drinks menu featuring a cocktail list curated by the talented team at Proof & Company, and a 3am licence.
The Outpost’s legacy stems from Brisbane dive bar of the same name that was an integral part of the vibrant underworld that made the city so unique; it is a celebration of Brisbane’s rich musical history from the late 70s post punk era.
Venue director John Collins remembers the original Outpost fondly. “My first ever gig was at The Outpost. I was 16 and was hyper-aware to a new world opening up to me. However, this Outpost is no Dive Bar. The team have created a stunning space that equally accommodates afterwork cocktails, pre-dinner drinks, and will nurture artists, offering them a springboard onto the Fortitude stage in tours to come. We hope it will have the same impact on patrons as its namesake had on me.”
The breezy guitars and sun-soaked melodies of Brisbane four-piece Major Leagues will be joined by Greta Stanley, Married Man and Colts to launch the venue on Thursday August 1st.
The Outpost will be a place filled with stories of intimate performances, sweaty rock shows, strong whiskey, sweet rum, fancy cocktails and freewheeling fun. You’re welcome to join us.
