From hibernation to happening: The Jetty South Bank is back!

This spring has not only herald in flowers, festivities, and fun, but also the rejuvenation of the Jetty Southbank, one of Brisbane’s favourite dining venues.

Instead of hibernating inside snuggies and binging on Netflix during the bitter winter, owners Jason and Katie Coats kept warm by knocking down walls during their revamp of the Jetty South Bank, and the results of their labour are truly pier-turesque!

The first thing guests will notice when walking into the venue is its impressive split design, that now situates the bar at the forefront of the space – giving us the chance to drink in the views as well as our cocktails! The Jetty now offers morning takeaway coffee and delicious pastries from 7a.m. daily! Filling the need for delicious cups of java alongside the River Quay, it’s the perfect place to spend the morning before (or after!) a big night relishing their tantalising new menu.

That’s right guys, the layout is not the only new addition to The Jetty Southbank! In the spirit of spring and all things innovative, talented Head Chef Rhett Willis has devised some delicious new modern Australian dishes. Combining peanut crunch, pickled pawpaw, and chilli caramel with charred beef rib, Willis’ makes flavours that usually don’t work together, work together so well.

Further sprucing up the night-time menu is beef cheek simmered in pho stock with soft noodles, and, for those craving carbs in the form of delicious pasta, a spaghettini dish infused with sand crab, chilli and confit garlic. For those seeking a more informal dining experience, the bar area offers a smaller menu which is sure to please.

At the other end of the scale, intimate dinners for groups up to 20 can be hosted in their beautiful private dining room.

Bouncing back with both a creative new menu, layout, and breakfast options, don’t miss out on The Jetty South Bank next time you’re strolling through River Quay!
