Travelled to Bris from Gold Coast to see Perry Keys playing at the Junk Bar. What a GREAT venue..Just loved it !!!! 2 rooms, one is a lounge bar for drinks and eating. The other a small intimate Music room, with great acoustics .. Staff so welcoming and happy. Will definitely be back to try the menu and chill out.

My wife and i called on after looking for bars in the area. Certainly not what you will expect but defiantly worth a visit. Interior design querky and retro don't let the curtain from the outside put you off, everything in there is as the bars name says, junk.

I absolutely love this place, it's so quirky, like stepping back in time with its funky decor and amazing vinyl classics playing in the background. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the food is really yummy, it's the perfect place to chill with mates. The cab sav is devine too! Go check it out! you won't regret it.

A brilliant smattering of many different genres. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. Food was excellent (albeit only Hors d'oeuvre, we went elsewhere for the mains) and drink prices were reasonable. They have gone to a lot of effort to create a crazy ecclecticism which borders on the surreal. I absolutely loved it.

Staff are good and tried to make our drinks as asked. Music was not for our age but it never is these days, Trendy place but not pretentious so will go back again.

You'll hear the word "eclectic" in reviews for this place a lot, and in this instance it is most apt. Went here one evening on a friend's recommendation and wasn't disappointed. You wouldn't even know from the street that it was there. Lot's of little nooks to disappear into with the "eclectic" decorations, impressive cocktails (the Junk Mojito has quite... More

My friend and I met here yesterday and it is fantastic. It is like walking into 1930's ecclectic bar with soft lighting and music that allows you to hear the other person. There was food available but we only had a wine and beer. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was it is a little pricey. Overall... More

Caught up with friends I hadn't seen for ages. Junk bar was a cosy little "bar" with an eclectic mix of unique and quirky furniture reminiscent of your great auntys lounge room back in the 70's - I loved it ! Great cocktail range and you can order food to share as well. Hosts were great and attentive. Music -... More
