The Fox Hotel Review


Review By Irene McLaughlin

Located in West End and five minutes from Brisbane's CBD, The Fox Hotel has become one of Brisbane's most iconic bars. Built in the late 1800s, this vintage city landmark has been totally renovated to become one of the most popular party scenes in Brisbane. Whether it's enjoying the live music, sipping a cocktail, or soaking up Brisbane's balmy weather on the eminent rooftop, The Fox is guaranteed to accommodate every party goer's desires.

On three levels, with its six contrasting bars, The Fox never disappoints. The ground floor is home to the Main Bar, made all the more enticing by any number of pool tables, a TAB and topped off with stylish outdoor dining. Laced in glamour and elegance, the Al Capone Bar on level one encapsulates the essence of a roaring 1920s high society bar. Take a seat on one of the many luxurious chesterfield lounges under sparkling crystal chandeliers and lazily enjoy a variety of cocktails. You haven't fully experienced the foxiness of The Fox until you've paid a visit to the iconic rooftop. Surprise yourself with full 360 degree panoramic spectacle of Brisbane's high rise.

The Fox offers a different theme for each night with massive money saving deals. Every Wednesday night you can enjoy All You Can Eat Rib's and Pizza for $16.95. Thursday night is Cancun night. For $1 you can savour tender and juicy pork ribs, along with spicy chicken wings for only 50c. French Kiss Friday means live music and free nibblies. If you are a Karaoke kid then come to The Fox on Saturdays and let your voice win cash prizes. Where else can you go to belt out your favourite tune and get paid for it?

The most popular day to visit The Fox is unequivocally Sunday. The Fox has claimed the number one destination for Sunday sessions, with thousands of people passing through their front door after 12pm. The crowd is largely comprised of 18 to twenty something year olds, including students, backpackers and tourists. It's appropriately themed $2 Super Sundays due to their $2 steak and chips promotion. Order between 1pm and 2pm and dine free. Yes, free.

The rooftop is hands down the most desired place to be on Sundays. However, due to its popularity, numbers are issued to those waiting on the below levels after 4.00pm. Sometimes one can wait for hours, with only another ten people allowed up. It can be disheartening watching friends of the doorman waltz up, when your requests have been trivialised. It's all about who you know. However if you're a flirty young female you may just be able to sweet talk your way to the top.

The Fox is one of the most popular Brisbane night spots but it's still considered a baby among other established night clubs. With its themed nights and deal upon deal, The Fox is predicted to become the leading bar for weekend partying. This vintage venue with its stylish and open atmosphere will leave you feeling foxy every night of the week.
