A 26-year-old man is due to appear in court charged over the assault of a man inside a popular Ipswich cocktail bar.

Police were called shortly before 1.30am on Sunday, November 3 to reports of a man being attacked inside Degero in St Nicholas Street.

It is understood the 29-year-old victim was involved in an altercation with the suspect outside the bar's toilets.
