BlackBird Bar and Grill
The newest addition to Brisbane's bar and restaurant scene, BlackBird Bar and Grill, made up of a beautiful restaurant and two bars, has a lush Gatsby era decor and stunning views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge. While the food alone is worth a visit (the Heritage Australian menu has a strong seafood and steak focus, the latter of which is grilled before diner's eyes), it's the highly unusual bar fit out that makes this venue a must-see. The two large bars are split into 'dark' and 'light', reflecting the two moods of the '20s, prohibition speakeasy, and opulent Gatsby style. BlackBird Bar and Grill also has extensive private dining facilities, if you'd rather not mingle.
