Food is forever the best way to unlock the key to someone’s heart. So, if you’re trying to romance your main squeeze, with the help of Treasury Brisbane we’ve curated the ultimate date night no matter your vibe and budget. 

Go All Out With Decadent Dishes

It’s time to step out of your loungewear and frock up. Whether you’re looking to seriously impress your new bae or you’re celebrating a milestone anniversary, Black Hide by Gambaro can absolutely deliver. Oozing over-the-top grandeur with plush velvet seating and moody romantic lighting, you know you’re in for an unforgettable night. 

Aside from the beautiful aesthetics—that will make for the perfect backdrop to your date night ‘Gram—they’ve also got an impressive menu to match. We recommend starting with freshly shucked oysters topped with red wine and eschalot vinegar, followed by Moreton Bay Bugs with grilled broccolini and lemon caper butter—it’s pure perfection. As for your main, Black Hide by Gambaro is a renowned steakhouse after all, so you can’t go past the rib fillet steak with wagyu fat roasted potatoes topped with rosemary, garlic, and red wine jus. If you really want to win their heart, you’ll end the night with a decadent chocolate mousse.

Fill Your Fork With Spicy Asian-Fusion

This exotic hideaway is dishing up Asian-fusion street food using revitalised traditional family recipes and locally sourced produce. Step into the bustling restaurant where the kitchen is on display to bring the Asian street food dining experience to life and diners closer to the action. The interiors at Fat Noodle are certainly something to marvel with woks used as chandeliers and a design piece made from golden chopsticks. 

It’s not just the stylish interiors that gets us hot under the collar here, it’s also the wallet-friendly Asian fare. With prices ranging from $12 to $29, (with the exception of the larger share and banquet dishes), treating yourself and bae won’t mean breaking the bank. Our top picks for date night go to the spicy Vietnamese chicken salad and the Atlantic Salmon sashimi to start. Next up, you absolutely must try the steamy and delicious 20-hour pho. Round out the night with a pandan coconut crème brûlée and your date will be swooning.

Grab A Drink With Views

Tucked away in the iconic Treasury Hotel overlooking Queen’s Park, Ryan’s On The Park is one of the most underrated watering holes in the CBD. Boasting old-world charm with dark leather armchairs, this is a top spot to recline with a drink in hand while enjoying the company of your date.

Ryan’s On The Park offers a variety of fine drops, beers, spirits and a bevvy of fancy cocktails. If things are going well with your date and you’re looking to stay a little longer than for just a few drinks, they’ve also got a range of bar snacks like burgers, pizza, pasta and chips. All in all, this is a versatile date night spot that ticks all the boxes from food to drinks and a sultry atmosphere. 

Ramp up the romance with an unforgettable night at Treasury Brisbane’s incredible watering holes and eateries. Plus, if all things go well and you’re looking to take this romance to the next level, we recommend making a night out of it and booking a romantic staycay at Treasury Hotel.
