Love the place, with the history ambiance, but drink prices are way over the top. Went to a lovely performance last night ( Emma Dean), and bought a pre show drink. $11 per glass, and no glasses left for the sparkly wine, so we’re given a normal wine glass, and the sparkles were non existent. Otherwise, lovely place, and the performance was amazing. Maybe drop the drink prices a little, and people might go back for a 2nd one, without breaking the bank.

Went to see the bulding and to see what was going on. It is a performance and arts venue, not a museum or gallery, so if you go just for a poke around outside of a show there isn't much going on. The riverfront cafe is fabulous.

Great venue - with a very niche/arty vibe (compared to most other theatre venues in the city) and surprising parking options (if you're not wanting to pay, do a cheeky google, there are a whole load of free options). Bar is cute & reasonably priced. There are great views from/of the Brisbane river and a lovely garden area outside the venue also. Have seen a few fabulous/wild/interesting shows during this year's Brisbane Festival!

Riverside place on walkway is good place to stop and eat or drink. Innovative use of the old building. We ordered our food and drink and paid at the bar but had a wait before we picked up our own food as there is no waiter service. Our chicken dish was good.

Comedy Nights at the Powerhouse, but the place has food and a bar.
Desperately need more toilet facilities, and disabled toilets too. Often there are a few thpusand people here at a time, but only 1 toilet each for men and women. Very poor

Visited the Brisbane Powerhouse in December 2022 to attend a Cirque de Solais circus. The venue is really nice, right on the river with beautiful views and parking is
plentiful. The restaurants within the venue are also of a high standard.

Had a small portion of my photoshoot being done at the brick wall. It was out of our way to drive up to the place, and only really has the one wall that everyone takes photos next to. If you live nearby or don't mind the time spent to get from there and back, then it is a great location, as you won't find anything similar to it. But just for a couple of photos, it isn't worth it.

I always love going to the Powerhouse. Great atmosphere, staff and I always enjoy the events. Just watched the Ocean Film Festival World Tour. What an amazing film. If you're passionate about the Ocean and the environment this is a must.
