Set at the southern end of QPAC, alongside the Playhouse Theatre, is the charming Russell Street Wine Bar. It boasts a warm and stylish design and spectacular views of South Bank and The Wheel of Brisbane.
Meet up with friends before the show and share a charcuterie board, cheese plate or a selection of tapas. The wine list is extensive, and is distinguished by a contemporary selection of organic and carbon-neutral wines. Relax and explore the flavours, chosen for their character and tangible sense of origin.
Russell Street Wine Bar is proud to currently host artworks from Judith Wright and Claudia Moodoonuthi as part of the ARTBANK initiative. This initiative incorporates Australian contemporary artists into more diverse spaces. 100% of the revenue generated from leasing the artwork goes back into supporting Australian artists.
Please note that the Russell Street Wine Bar is only open prior to Playhouse performances. Due to the nature of a performing arts venue, hours of operation may vary, please refer to our opening times above for reference.
