Cloudland is nestled beside (and within) the heritage listed Empire Hotel, which has been a part of the Fortitude Valley landscape since 1888.

Cloudland’s electric and dynamic architecture 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.

Nick Brunner, the mind behind the design and layout of Cloudland has been quoted on defining his style and design for Cloudland as “Whatever appeals to him” and it shows.

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.

There are also strong themes of multiculturalism and diversity throughout Cloudland with natural organic shapes and artefacts, Karma Sutra wall coverings and tiki style statues and ornaments.
