We took a Brisbane ferry boat down the river to enjoy lunch at the Powerhouse. Sitting at an outside table we were adequately sheltered from the sun but some tables are in direct sunlight - so be aware of this when booking an outside table. I really enjoyed my meal here and washed down with 150 lashes made for an... More

The Powerhouse has some of the most cutting edge cultural events in Brisbane. Also great eating spots and wonderful place to have a cup of coffee and enjoy the view.

We went to the Powerhouse as a family group for an after work drink, including 2 preschoolers. It was a greatspot, with fantastic views on a hot afternoon. There was a riverside walk too, to help keep the children amused. The drinks were good as was the service. Set in a heritage building, we enjoyed the experience.

The interestingly designed Powerhouse (once an old power station) is probably the best and most diverse non-sporting live entertainment venue in Brisbane. The location is fantastic, being right on the river in New Farm and is close to a plethora of New Farm bars and eateries for maximum pre-show and post-show entertainment options ("Watt" and "Alto" bars are included within...

Nice job has been done a converting the old building, and its very nice inside. Nice restaurant overlooking the river and it includes a museum to view at additional cost. Not a bad place for a cuppa after visiting the new farm markets, personally i will never return.
