The Ship Inn
The name of this ornate building reflects its history. The Ship Inn was built in 1864 during South Bank’s run as a bustling shipping area, and it quickly became a popular haunt for sailors. As South Bank has grown, so has The Ship Inn – it is now a well-known restaurant, bar and function space.
The Plough Inn
Built in 1885, The Plough Inn originally served as a hotel and eatery. It was constructed during South Brisbane’s commercial boom and was designed to reflect an era of prosperity. In 1988, The Plough Inn became part of World Expo ‘88’s festivities and today it operates as a prominent bar, restaurant and function space.
