In the past few years, the airport end of Fortitude Valley has become a precinct of hipster hotels. Some are hanging their hat on trendy restaurants and rooftop bars, but Alpha Mosaic has taken a more traditional route, focusing on quality and harnessing a slightly more sophisticated edge. In June, it is celebrating 12 months of open doors. It hasn’t positioned itself as a go-to nightspot, which probably means it’s not bathing in the same word-of-mouth glory as its neighbours. But those who’ve found it couldn’t be happier.
