Creative Drinks March Event: Art with Attitude

Ratu Lewis

Creative Drinks Art with Attitude


Is it already event time again? YES IT IS!

This month Creative Drinks brings you a night of visual art displayed on the brick walls of Barsoma, in Fortitude Valley.  We’re not talking about landscapes; vases or fruit bowls but fresh, bold and colourful art pieces. Trust us, you won’t be squinting your eyes or tilting your head to fully appreciate the artwork at our event.

Barsoma Lounge Bar and Restaurant is a favourite spot hidden in the Valley and boasts a “classy yet subdued” atmosphere. The industrial styling of Barsoma adds some quirk to its sophistication. The loft design allows for a spacious, multi-levelled and couch-covered venue for our event. Exposed brick walls will be host to some unique and fresh work from local artists. We’ll also be taking advantage of their outside area which is like their own little laneway. You should also expect to come across some delicious tapas and 007-themed signature cocktails.

Artist Hive, a Brisbane creative consultancy will be exhibiting the work from various artists from their network of independent creative industry contractors. David Hooper, co-founder of Artist Hive will be giving a short presentation guiding you through the art on show. We’ll also have secret-not-so-secret live street art outside Barsoma by Crush City. Sticking around till the end of the night will give your ears the benefit of hearing the music of Charlotte Emily, Brisbane folk/pop musician. On top of this, there will be gourmet pizza floating around and a bar tab.

Tickets will be sold at the door. However, there will only be a limited amount so take the opportunity and book ahead online at

Join the Creative Drinks team at Barsoma at 6pm on the 21st of March for a night of “Art with Attitude.” With free drinks, nibblies, live art, music and a creative crowd, “Art with Attiude” is an event not to be missed.
