Eat & drink in Brisbane's very own urban oasis.

Cloudland is nestled beside (and within) the heritage listed Empire Hotel, which has been a part of the Fortitude Valley landscape since 1888. It’s eclectic and dynamic design is something for all generations bringing the class of old world glamour and the eccentric and vivacious themes of the new world. Cloudland takes you into a fantasy land that must be revisited time and time again, to uncover all of the hidden gems. There are references to a love of nature with over 15,000 live plants throughout the venue, vast internal waterfall and hundreds of intricate natural elements that brings the outside, in.

Cloudland boasts a carefully curated food and drink offering that is approachable yet unique, but without compromise, always fresh, inspired and made with love! The menu is Italian-inspired, produced by Chef Paolo Camisotti using classic techniques honed in his homeland Ferrara, in the Emilia-Romagna region in Northern Italy – but through a modern lens, using only the freshest and most sustainable local ingredients. All our pasta is made fresh in-house and the pizza hand-stretched and wood-fired. Whether it be for lunch or dinner, an intimate experience or a group celebration, Cloudland’s Italian menu will surprise and delight. View the lunch and dinner menus here.
