What a fantastic space for creative pastimes. This was our first visit and we loved it. The architecture is outstanding and this place has a real buzz. If we lived in Brisbane we would come often.

Attended a private function on the roof top terrace. The food and service were outstanding, views fantastic. This venue is ideal for a corporate event, plus it has character and interest - it's not just another venue.

We went along on Saturday afternoon and were fortunate to procure last minute tickets for the matinee performance of Joh for PM. They were in row O, one row from the back, but we could see and hear well. The photographic exhibition presented a wide...More
