The team behind the Brisbane underground live music venue, Brooklyn Standard, will launch its sister venue, Chingn, later this month.
An established business in Melbourne, Chingn will also reside on Eagle Lane, offering Mexican street food and a range of cocktails, as well as boutique beers and wines, and premium tequila and mezcals served with either sangrita or verdita.
“The first Chingn was started by our good friends the Balleau brothers in Melbourne in 2012. We loved what they were doing down there and thought it would be really cool to bring it to Brisbane,” said Brooklyn Standard co-owner, Adam Barton. “Plus we thought that it fit in well with the vibe of Brooklyn Standard and the upcoming Cuban bar – we want to make Eagle Lane a really awesome laneway precinct.”
While the menu is yet to be finalised, popular items from the Melbourne site include grilled garlic prawns, chipotle crema and lime; and char-grilled achiote pork with pineapple and capsicum salsa, rolled in a handmade soft corn tortilla.
