From dining, to shows to working out, the powerhouse knows how to turn it on. Food is 5 star and the service is fast efficient but not rushed.

An interesting spot to stroll through. Filled with art installations, and a place to eat. Worth walking through for the architecture, and the acknowledgement that Brisbane is a great place on a human scale. You catch that sensibility in New Farm especially. A definite stop no matter how long you stay in Brisbane.

A great heritage refurbishment, turning a disused Powerhouse in to a perfomance space/ restaurant bar, sitting by the River.

This is a converted electricity generator. It has been gutted but beautifully restored to host several terrific bars and restaurants. The internal theatres are great with a constant range of alternative as well as mainstream live productions. Set in the beautiful New Farm Park.

Really good atmosphere. Love the old-style modernised building. The show was good, good seating. Only real downer was that there was only 2 toilets outside where we sat & there was a huge line-up. The toilets were almost out of toilet paper, I was lucky there was just enough for me & probably the next person, but there was paper... More

We visit regularly mainly to see the various entertainment on offer. Great food, wine & beer list, great views of the Brisbane River with the passing vessels, cyclists, walkers and not to mention the expensive homes across the way. Shows on offer vary changing regularly they include anything from comedy, musicians, photographers, plays etc. Most shows do have a charge... More

This is a multi-purpose venue with shows, restaurant and café/bar. We stopped here during our cycle ride along the river for a cup of coffee. What a lovely setting just watching the world go by. The café frontage has just been refurbished and now has hydraulically operated windows that rise up and fold out of the way giving a wonderful... More

My interstate friend took me for lunch and I was surprised that I thoroughly enjoyed the food wine anD service was great. We ordered mostly all the entree because we didn't want to rush we just wanted to enjoy the great Brisbane weather, and the river site. My friend was very impressed too. Food wine and service are great.
