i love this place. we have been coming here for over 5 years when we are in brisbane (every month or so) and it is always a special "zen space" with funky noise of course!!! but it always is so relaxing to come here. any spot is a great place to sit, staff are always attentive and professional day or night (robbie is a standout during the day) and the food is always simple and perfect to offset one of their many cocktails or wines. food is quick to come out and you could honestly have a fix and food and be out in less than an hour if you needed. dessert is a definite standout here, they do it very very well and the calamari and or croquettas are too too too good for a drink snack! it is always very busy so i tend to book ahead now, as i have teenage kids in tow and they are always made welcome, do not feel you cannot bring teenage children (accompanied by parents) during the day as they cater. later at night is obviously all the beautiful peoples' time out so that is not appropriate for young ones. toilets are always clean. staff do their upmost to fit you in however they can. such a relaxed atmosphere makes a great time out. the only negative that i would have to say is breakfast is not their forte. i would definately recommend from 11 am onwards as a wonderful wonderful place to go. i cannot recommend this place enough! well done cru bar and staff!

Cru Bar is a restaurant and bar that also has a fantastic and upmarket bottle shop attached where you can get the very best from all over the world. The windows around the restaurant open up the side of the building on James Street to allow a summer-like bistro ambiance. The food is pretty good (over may visits) and the service is attentive. This is one of the places "to be seen"

When I use to reside in Brisbane I would frequent Cru Bar often for a casual drink and a bite and I was not once disappointed. I love what James Street has to offer and most certainly this bar is one of my favourite spots to meet up with friends or family.

Cru Bar never changes - it just stays the same but the vibe is great, the food awesome and the wine cellar out of this world. Great for weekend lunches and brunches and Fridays nights are huge.
