Corporate Dinner and Drinks Spots to Impress
Raise a glass, but don’t ask for a raise. Unless that’s ever gone well for anyone? (asking for a friend)
Whether you’re trying to close the most important deal of your career, seeking a meeting spot that won’t trigger a single sigh of disappointment, or simply want to shower your colleagues with a delicious reward for all their hard work (please, let us send you a world’s best boss mug), we’ve rounded up a list of corporate dinner and drinks spots that are set to impress.
Mecca Bah | Fortitude Valley
If we had three wishes, they’d summon Brisbane’s best mezze, meat platters and tagine. Mecca Bah is dressed to impress, serving mouth-watering modern Middle Eastern and Mediterranean inspired cuisine amidst captivating surroundings. Hot tip: order your boss a spiced old fashioned to quickly become the new favourite!
Heritij | CBD
Render your colleagues speechless with a healthy hit of spice. Owned by a Michelin-starred chef, Heritij is an intoxicating modern Indian restaurant overlooking the city and staring right into your deepest desires. Traditional meals cooked in authentic Tandoors will land a nod of approval from even the fussiest eater in the office, with an extensive wine list to pair perfectly with your dinner.
Saké | Eagle Street Pier
One of Australia’s best contemporary Japanese restaurants is Saké, which just so happens to live in our humble city. Starters of mouthwatering wagyu gyozas and sashimi tacos are ideal to pair with their incredibly impressive saké list, while traditional and modern flavours are fused throughout the menu. Impressing your clients will be easy peasy.
Black Hide at Treasury | CBD
Hiding your satisfaction will be near impossible after you leave. Black Hide is set up at Treasury by the Gambaro group, specialising in world-class Australian wagyu and Angus steak. Order a series of share plates, indulge in premium wine and spirits, release your inhibitions, and take a personal day tomorrow.
Isles Lane | CBD
Live life in the Isles Lane. A CBD hotspot that uplifts social gatherings and exudes a wave of luxury around every corner is an obvious choice. Meet and eat the likes of whole lamb shoulder with fresh herbs and confit garlic, and crispy pork belly with caramelised pear purée and compressed apple. If you’re after drinks, the cocktail list will wow, and then some.
The Charming Squire | South Brisbane
For a more relaxed setting that won’t skimp on impressing, opt for The Charming Squire. This classic South Brisbane restaurant and brewhouse puts the fine in dining with handmade potato gnocchi with wild mushrooms, peas, pumpkin and Grana Padano, and a selection of beers on tap. Drink in the outdoors with an open setting, and settle in for a well deserved post-work tipple.
Stokehouse Q | South Bank
Right by the river, Stokehouse Q is one to impress clients from near and far; exuding a feeling of wealth and importance, with an exquisite menu to match. Splurge silly on a menu of razor prawn and passionfruit ceviche, pancetta wrapped chicken with roasted peach, almond and spring onion jus, and wash it down with a creative cocktail. I hear the sound of a successful deal on your end!
Regatta Hotel | Toowong
From The Boathouse to The Henley Room, the Regatta Hotel features versatile spaces on every floor. Select the vibe you’re going for, and your ideal space will be ready and waiting. Menus and beverages also rank high on the versatility scale, meaning an all round perfect situation for any corporate affair.
