Pair riverfront views with classic Aussie flavours

If you’re looking for a place to wind down with mates after work or spend a leisurely lunch with the family, head down to the river and visit Watt. The outdoor seating takes advantage of the location, which also gives you easy access to local parks and the comedy, theatre and gigs performed at the Brisbane Powerhouse.

But it’s more than just a room with a view: they dish out a menu of modern Australian eats with an American accent. Try a Reuben bagel, the pulled pork and lettuce tacos or share a charcuterie board while you sip Champagne. If you’re just looking for a tipple before seeing a show, Watt has a selection of quirky cocktails that match the colourful character of the venue.

Get the gang together for the ‘Sunset Sessions’ and for $45 you can mix and match three plates and a cocktail jug. Or on the weekend, grab a beer and listen to live music sets. And don’t leave you’re pooch behind – Watt welcomes every member of the family, even furry friends.
