Dutch Courage Officers' Mess opens in Fortitude Valley

Dutch Courage OM opened with a bang a few weeks ago in Fortitude Valley. Dutch Courage is located on Alfred Street. This street is shaping up to be quite the hot spot with well known restaurants like Alfred & Constance, and Kwan Brothers already established there. We were so excited to be invited along to the Dutch Courage OM official VIP launch event. It was a fantastic night! 

This party was truly the place to be seen with models, athletes, and various other celebs in attendance. Not surprising considering how super stylish this new gin, cocktail and tapas bar is! Even the staff were dressed to the nines in uniforms that would make any Maccas employee extremely envious. Dutch Courage OM organized a special photoshoot before the launch party for media/bloggers. After everyone was finished snapping pictures we got to taste the food. This place has a lot going for it other than its extensive collection of gin. The food is amazing. Do yourself a favour and check this place out. We predict it will be difficult to snag a table in the near future.
