Aura Bar - Stacking up to $1,500 in savings weekly with Bartercard

Aura Bar is a hidden gem in Brisbane’s gritty Fortitude Valley serving up some of the best and most affordable bistro-style Mediterranean cuisine in town.  Mixing traditional flavours with contemporary style backed by the warm approach of a family-owned business, Aura Bar has attracted a loyal and steady following since opening its doors to Brisbane three years ago.

At first impression Aura Bar has the feel of a traditional taverna with a modern twist, sprouting from its European roots – although the culture is most certainly authentic to the core, from the handpicked wine to the traditional baklava and the signature espresso. 

Owner Con Papamitros, who has 35 years of experience in Brisbane’s restaurant and catering scene, said he attributes recent success at Aura Bar to Bartercard.

Joining the business marketplace at the start of this year, he’s since seen a spike in customers and significant cash savings.

“Bartercard customers make up approximately 10 per cent of my clientele, and word-of-mouth referrals stemming from the extra business has attracted many more visitors to Aura,” he said.   
“Conserving cash with Bartercard has also stacked up to significant savings. 

“I source coffee, bread, fruit and vegetables, plants for the garden, electrical work, plumbing, a refrigeration mechanic and so much more which allows me to pocket between $1,000 and $1,500 in savings each week. 

“I have also bought furniture and a commercial deep fryer which has saved me $7,000 in cash combined.”

He added that Bartercard has been an absolute asset to Aura which has also benefited the catering arm of his business by being promoted across the network of 20,000 members.”

Aura Bar opens its doors to customers for breakfast and lunch at two locations in Fortitude Valley, and in addition to its bistro it specialises in catering and functions.
