Little Big House
The Queenslander for Queenslanders, Little Big House is the ultimate Brisbane bar-come-party house that will put a smile on your dial every night of the week.
Hovering above Collins Place, and conveniently right next to the train platform, Little Big House is the result of a major refurbishment. They salvaged the bones of an 1889 two-storey Queenslander on stilts, complete with tonnes of balcony space to catch rays and breeze, and with a past life as a police station (hence the name), it really is a thing of unique beauty.
This sets up Little Big House as the perfect place to bend the elbow when you’re in the mood for a damn good cocktail or local brew and a rollicking house party, ever more appropriate when you consider they’re kitted-out with a secret karaoke room (free to use by the way), a pool table, and no fewer than two bars.
On drinks, Little Big House bottles the taste of endless summer with their totally cute (read: IG-worthy) cocktails in cans, house frosé, and a long list of local brews. The brainchild of Matt Moran, the food at LBH is also outstanding, naturally. Changing the game for pub food and bar snacks, menu standouts include the chicken parmy spring rolls and their super succulent rotisserie chicken, roasted on site each day.
Whether you’re after a casual lunch, a lazy Sunday sesh, or just a seriously good time, Little Big House is the only place you need to go.
