I come here often to see plays, cabaret, circus, comedy - it is a regular of mine. The staff there are always lovely, drinks great and the atmosphere is wonderful. If you are looking for something a little different from the main city this is where to go - wonderful view of the river from the bar as well :)

What a great place to spend a few hours on a lazy Sunday. Live music, art exhibitions, good food and super views from the bar. Top this off with a very trendy crowd and here is a great few hours girl everybody.

This building is a gem, so full of interesting crooks and crannies, and is so photogenic. Well worth a visit. There are great food places and drinking places.

An excellent venue. Any time of the day is a good time to visit. Plenty of avenues for food and drink. An excellent venue to take in a show. I have visited many times especially to catch one of the many shows available. There is always some thing happening. Drive your self, catch a cab or jump on a river... More

The Power House sitting proudly by the Brisbane river is one of the best multifunctional sites in Brisbane. Free performances, ticketed shows, concerts, movies, stage shows, comedy club, restaurants, venue hire, weddings, art exhibitions, in door and out door. Apart from all the usual events going on I have found the architectural qualities a real inspiration and a classic example... More

The Powerhouse is such a great place to visit, set in the peaceful New Farm Park framed by the Brisbane River. Something there for everyone, the theatres are just the right size to allow close contact to the artists. Also the weekly markets are just so good, they create a very enjoyable way to buy goods and such a friendly... More

I have attended a few events at the powerhouse which have been great, but the highlight is definitely having Sunday afternoon drinks at dusk by the river at Watt bar - a must do for everyone visiting Brisbane

What a great little theatre to watch a show in. Quite comfortable with no bad seats in the theatre and easy access to seats with one of our party on crutches. This is the first time we have been to a show there but won't be the last.

The bar food is quite sophisticated and we really enjoyed the Tuscany wings and octopus. Nice view and live music. Can't ask for more.

My last stop at the powerhouse was for a coffee meeting and ended with a wander through the latest photography exhibition. Always housing something to look at, listen to or laugh along with, I rely on the powerhouse to provide something to do when my husband and I need date ideas or when I just need an escape. It never... More
