Restaurants - New Farm, QLD
Riverbank restaurant in a converted power station, for modern Italian food in a contemporary space.
Bar Alto is located at the Brisbane Powerhouse, which is a contemporary multi-arts, dining and conference venue nested on the beautiful banks of Brisbane River beside New Farm Park. The former power station has become a distinct Brisbane landmark, both as a stunning industrial creation and as a hub for everything creative, including theatre, music, comedy, film, visual arts, festivals and ideas.
Funded by Brisbane City Council (BCC), Brisbane Powerhouse opened as an arts centre in 2000 after its 30-year reign as a derelict power station. Bold industrial structures laced with European flair, raw textures and preserved graffiti walls combine to create the perfect artistic space and have earned the building a heritage listing.
The recently refurbished Brisbane Powerhouse precinct ensures a holistic arts and dining experience. Recent refurbishment additions include our our new cafe bar. Bar Alto, overlooking the Brisbane River, a reconfigured Turbine Platform to constitute a concert stage, a reconfiguration of the Powerhouse Theatre, an additional Rooftop Terrace and a roof on the existing Rooftop Terrace.
