If you’re an avid fan of the Marvel-verse (or any superhero comics for that matter) then you’ll love this intimate new venue hidden in the heart of Fortitude Valley. 1st Edition is both bar and eatery, slinging comic book-inspired cocktail creations and delicious food to pair. So come and celebrate your love for your favourite comics. And you never know, you might meet some new friends who are equally obsessed.

As soon as you step into this 22-seat bar, the first things you might notice is the giant Batman mural above the bar and the comic art covering the central benchtop. Then, when it comes to the drinks menu, you’ll find superhero-themed cocktails such as The Harley Quinn, a dry gin creation topped with Persian fairy floss and gold flakes, as well as a Ninja Turtle Negroni, mixed to perfection with Salami Campari, 1757 Ross Vermouth, and Bulldog gin.

Inspired by Japanese and Kentucky cuisine, the food menu includes mouth-watering plates such as Cheeseburger gyozas, Red Duck Curry, Kingfish sashimi, Cauliflower popcorn, oysters, Chicken ribs, spanner crab, and more. On Friday and Saturday nights, you can also have a boogie to DJs from 10pm.

Due to 1st Edition being a small venue, they only take bookings online. You can book a table for you and your Marvel mates here.
