Drawing inspiration from its Italian roots, Antico will seamlessly blend the familiar elements of leather chairs, intricate tiling work, and a captivating black marble bar, all reminiscent of the group’s other two esteemed establishments in Brisbane.

Guests will be able to savour the flavours of Italy through a selection of delectable bar snacks, including bruschetta, cheese, and cold-cut meats. These tantalising offerings are set to complement the bar’s classic cocktail-oriented concept.

The team plans to present a house Negroni featuring their distinctive vermouth blend, Campari, and a joint gin creation with Nosferatu, a distillery based in Bowen Hills.

In preparation for its July opening, Antico has transformed the space formerly occupied by Super Whatnot, giving it a whole new look and feel. The industrial vibe of Super Whatnot is gone, replaced with a warm and welcoming atmosphere that’s designed to make people feel comfortable and eager to be back.
