- Food & Booze
Where to dine before heading to Suncorp
Suncorp Stadium is one of Brisbane’s hot spots for sport and entertainment, and it also happens to be nestled in a foodie heaven!
Whether you need to tackle your hunger before the rugby or fuel up for a night of dancing to your favourite artist, Suncorp’s ‘hood has you covered.
BREWSKI BAR | CAXTON ST
The name says it all. Not only is Brewski a short stroll from the gates of the stadium, but they also stock over 200 kinds of bottled craft beer and rotate eight different taps every day! Experts in American eats, the smells from their low ’n’ slow BBQ will make you think you’ve died and gone to heaven, while vegetarians can meat their match with the best vegan BBQ around, like pulled jackfruit tacos!
DARLING & CO | PADDINGTON
Darling & Co brings a touch of sophistication and a whole lot of boozy goodness to your Suncorp sesh! With a colourful dining space specialising in rustic eats and plenty of cocktails until late, Darling & Co can take you from pre-match dining to post-show drinks in charming style.
FRITZENBERGER | PETRIE TERRACE
Fritzenberger has you covered with their insanely delicious burger and snacks menu, and with add-ons like maple syrup candied bacon, how could you say no? As well as local craft beers, Fritzenberger have their very own beers on tap too!
HOPE & ANCHOR | PADDINGTON
Self-proclaimed “best little boozer in Paddington,” Hope & Anchor is the easy choice for pre-show eats with a few drinks. The only hard part? Deciding between ham hock and pea arancini with minted pea ketchup and ham jelly, or braised pork cheeks with creamed carrot and crispy potato. Why not both?
LIBERTINE | PETRIE TERRACE
If one course just isn’t enough to get you through a show, Libertine will dish up seven of them for you, each one as drool-worthy as the next. Fair warning: after a few courses of mushroom potstickers, BBQ duck crepes and twice cooked pork belly, you might just be too stuffed to make the short walk to the stadium.
SICHUAN BANG BANG | PADDINGTON
With an extensive menu of Chinese dishes, the only hard part about dining at Sichuan Bang Bang is deciding what to get – we won’t judge if you get seconds (or fourths). Take a peek at their duck, or sea for yourself how good the chilli crispy soft-shell crab is. And those are just some of the appetisers…
Where will you chow down before kick off?
