A great place to spend a Sunday sangria drinking and people-spotting. We enjoyed the view of the river and the voice of the talented singer. The Powerhouse is a cool venue and we would love to come back for one of the art happenings. The toilets were fresh and clean, too (as everywhere in Australia).

We went to DAAS on Saturday night. I'm not reviewing them - they were fantastic! BUt rather the Theatre. Really funky architecture - great idea to convert an old powerhouse and leave many of its guts on view. The blue lighting is really effective outside as well. It was lovely to stand outside on the river at the bar whilst... More

Brilliant show of course; DAAS are amazing still. Now down to the actual review of The Powerhouse; attentive and friendly staff, good temperature for a live show, somewhat comfy chairs, good acoustics. There are food/drink options (sampled previously and nice but not on this occasion.) I would recommend taking a taxi though as parking options inadequate in the car park... More

Been here many times for comedy nights or cabaret type performances. It's a fascinating group of spaces, quite eclectic with constant exhibitions on of photographers. There are two restaurants, one a proper sit down one, one a more small but good fare snack style.

I have enjoyed a number of theatrical and musical performances recently at the Powerhouse. Each night the venue has delivered a great night out, with a lovely setting on the river for pre and post show drinks and nibblies. I haven't tried the restaurants yet but the bar has a menu for light grazing before and after shows which is... More

Great venue with bars backing onto Brisbane River ...just not much onsite parking. The upper levels in main auditorium are quite restricted viewing.

power house is a great place to see a show or an exhibition. it is easily accessible by either the ferry from the river or bus. the adjoining parklands are perfect for picnics, dog walking [has a dog park, family fun or exercising. The regular suitcase rummage markets are a must with second hand clothing and handicrafts/ art and crafts... More
