Copperface Jacks hits Brisbane!
“In a corner of West End, the legend of Copperface Jacks continues the fine Irish tradition of a great Bar and Kitchen in a relaxing and welcoming environment where everybody knows your name and the craic is free.”
A new Irish bar with a very familiar name has just hit Brisbane – Copperface Jacks, has popped up in the trendy West End of BrisVegas as it’s affectionately called. As we all know, John Scott, 1st Earl of Clonmel held the nickname Copperface Jack and the team behind this new spot claim “[this]…is the sort of bar the judge would have loved hold court in – apparently he was a better drinker than he was judge – thus the nickname!”
Unlike the original version here in Dublin, the upmarket Aussie version boasts lots of wood, a sleek hip interior and on street dining on three sides. They claim to be following the Irish tradition of bar and kitchen and one rule in particular should keep the local guards and teachers “Smile, Meet, Eat, Laugh, Drink, Kiss, Dance, Sing”. Along with a main bar, customers are able to choose three spots to hang out and imbibe: Jack’s Beer Garden on Boundary Street – the ideal Sunday session spot; The Snug – perfect for coffee catch ups, first dates or a weekend brunch; The Hatch – opening onto Edmondstone St – outdoor drinking and dining.
It’s not known yet if they’ll have the legendary gold card, or when the sticky carpets will be laid down. However, we do know that they have Guinness so that’s something that hasn’t been lost in transit and with such a legendary status behind them who knows what will happen. In the meantime, make sure you check it out and as they say themselves, it’s a place to “Meet, Eat, Drink …Stay a while.” So, if you’re based in Brisbane and would like to find the local teachers, guards, or nurses you know where to go – you can visit their website here.
