Brisbane's Best Date Nights: The APO | Fortitude Valley

The valley may be home to some of Brisbane's best pubs and clubs...but that doesn't mean it's not an acceptable location for a date night!

The valley also happens to be bursting with quality dining experiences and The APO is a shining example of this.

Set in a heritage listed medicine dispensary dating back to 1862, the appropriately named APO (or apothecary) is serving up delicious, inspired tapas and equally impressive wines and cocktails. The menu has been expertly crafted by none other than chef Ben Williamson, who you may know from popular venues such as Gerard's Bistro.

We made our way to the valley to try it out for the first time a few weeks ago. Drawn in by a too good to pass up deal advertised on restaurant booking site, Dimmi. Each week Dimmi offers members exclusive 50% off deals to popular Brisbane restaurant. Membership is free and the deals can be claimed simply by booking through the website.

The restaurant itself is very cosy and intimate. We'd liken it to an upscale wine cellar. The romantic atmosphere paired with it's world class food offerings make it a top choice for a Brisbane date night in our books!
