Foodies, rejoice – a brand new eatery is coming to South Bank!
Solotel, the group owned by Bruce Solomon and Matt Moran, is breathing new life into the heritage-listed Collins Place, located at Southpoint on Grey St.
The building will be transformed into a modern Queensland pub with design features that stay true to its rich heritage and Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate.
Originally built around 1890 for Ship Inn proprietor Michael Foley, Collins Place has lived many lives, from a fashionable residence to police station and restaurant Spaghetti House during World Expo 88.
When it opens in June 2017, the new restaurant will no doubt follow in the footsteps of its sister venues, Opera Bar, Aria and Riverbar, to become a must-visit eatery.
For those who can’t wait that long, never fear, new eateries are set to open at South Bank on Friday 17 February!
Also located within Southpoint precinct, the eateries include Neil Perry’s Burger Project, Mrs Luu’s Vietnamese Canteen, Pourboy Espresso and Stone Artisan.
They will soon be joined by The Pantry on Grey, a fresh food market set to open later this month. The Pantry on Grey will feature fresh fruit and vegetables, a full service delicatessen with an extensive local and international cheese selection, a butcher specialising in dry-aged beef, fresh juice bar, florist and espresso bar.
Adding to this gourmet mecca will be an in-house chef to prepare delicious take-home meals, salads, sandwiches and wraps.
And if you’re looking to pick up a few essentials at South Bank, Woolworths in Southpoint is now open, and a Terry White Chemmart Pharmacy will be opening its doors around the same time as The Pantry on Grey.
