Tibetan festival

Fantastic to see a real Tibetan yoga class in action. Lovely cool foyer, lovely coffee shop (but a bit noisy for us)

Music, food, wine, people watching - and a wonderful old historic building - a lovely place to spend time. Restaurants and bars are all very good and welcoming

Not only are there great markets, wonderful surrounds, one of my favourite restaurants in Brisbane there the array of events, shows etc at this venue is truly wonderful...its such an edgy place. Worth a vist and a drink in the bar before hand or a meal if you can peel yourself away from the restaurant to go anywhere else.

We recently had our wedding and reception in one of the upstairs rooms/verandahs at Brisbane Powerhouse, and it was great! Exceptional service and friendly, knowledgable and professional staff, great food from accompanying catering company Zen Catering, beautiful views out over Brisbane River from the verandah, and a spectacular room and table set up inside. We have visited Brisbane Powerhouse on... More

Great location, but drinks are very expensive. The Powerhouse is a repurposed electricity substation. they have kept the graffiti which gives in character.

This place has been redone inside and looks fab. There are a few theatres for stand-up etc and a few restaurants. Parking is there but if packed there is street and nearby park parking.

I attended the "New Years Geek" party here, obviously on New Years Eve. The building is big, easy to navigate, and surprisingly comfortable. The bar staff were friendly, and efficient, and all drinks prices were reasonable, with a large selection available. The place also has a great view of the river, and is easy to find. Great place for events... More
