Enjoyed the Saturday morning market and the bar (didn't have food but it looked good) but found the venue a little difficult to access - some info and signs but not sure what happens there and when.

Great place to visit. Have been here several times for comedy shows. The theatre has a great atmosphere and the bar is a great place to meet friends prior to the show.

I have been here a couple of times. One to a Photography Display the other recnently a comedy performance. One of the premier sites in Brisbane. You will find alot of theatre performances as well as other attractions at different times of the year. The Powerhouse offers alot of variety and is an important contributor to the arts community.

We have been twice in 2 weeks. On the river, the Brisbane Powerhouse has been converted into a theatre/concert/band and restaurant space that is most unique. Enjoyed both Judith Lucy & Mary Wilson (Former Supreme). Reserved a table at Bar Alto before the show & it became a truly memorable night out. Arrive early as it's only a small car... More
