When you’re looking for a place to boogie down the night away, there’s only one place in Fortitude Valley that ticks all the boxes: Retro’s Cocktail Lounge. Playing nothing but the best ol’ skool hits from the 80s, 90s and naughties, you are guaranteed good vibes and good times.
In celebration of their 4th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY RETROS!), they have undergone a funky refurb and facelift while taking over some vacant space next door meaning the venue is HEAPS bigger. With the new entrance focused on their VIP guests, it’s fitted with a priority line, new reception, huge front bar, quirky LED quotes and a new lounge area. The old Mezzanine area is also bigger with additional VIP booths too!
The entire décor is designed to take you on a trip down memory lane with the new makeover full of nostalgia including glow paint, table tops with 90s flashback boombox and cassette tape patterns, plenty of fluro and even more disco balls! Even the DJ booth features a game of “Space Invaders” – how cool is that!?
While Retro’s may be famous for their Fish Bowl cocktails (Watermelon Cooler all the way), you can also find plenty of old school favourites including Margaritas, Espresso Martinis, Long Island Ice Teas and so much more.
Retro’s will be celebrating their relaunch and 4th birthday with a classic Retro’s party on Friday August 23 kicking off at 9pm.

Harbouring an unhealthy addiction of watching too many dog videos, Danica is a lover of the great outdoors. While her greatest skill may be the ability to rap ‘Fergalicious’ perfectly, her inability to remember her left and rights has proven to be her greatest downfall in life. When she’s not on the beach or hiking up another mountain, you can expect to find her trying to satisfy her Tim-Tam addiction with surprise, suprise… another packet of Tim-Tams. It seems like no-one told her they aren’t a suitable daily breakfast.
