Great little venue. Lots of history, good to walk through. Also a great spot for a beer on the river on A sunny afternoon.

I've noted a few contributors were terribly disappointed to find nothing happening when they visited...that's because it's a PERFORMANCE VENUE and when nothing is happening (pretty much the case in the daytime), well there's not much to see. It's an interesting building as far as it goes, having been reborn from its former state as a decommissioned and decrepit power... More

Great settings for plays and the theatre. It's Tate-esque and nice location by the river. Good alternative shows.

I didn't attend a show so can't comment on quality or types of show. The restaurant meal was quite good, but the view from the table was best. We had out-door seating and could watch river traffic. Rather liked the "City Kitties" gliding low in the water. (Yes, I know that's not their real name). It's great that the old... More

My sister and I attended the Powerhouse to see a play. I am local to the area but had never been inside, only knew that the building had been restored and looked great from outside. It's well worth having a look at the internal restorations. If you are going to see a show I'd recommend taking a light jacket as... More

We lived in New Farm for 2 years and the Powerhouse was 5 minutes away from our house. Great place to have a coffee / drinks / food with alternatives for theatre and oter cultural activities, with a great view towards the Brisbane River, and very close to the New Farm Park and CityCat station.

Attended a concert here and had a great time. The food was great and the prices where with in reason for any other good place in Brisbane. The visit highlighted that it would be great to use for functions, the food, view and facilities would surely impress.
