While my wife and I were a bit unsure of what we would experience our fears were quickly laid to rest. With just the right balance of Thrones icons and parody we had a wonderfully entertaining night. The three person cast were brilliant and kept us entertained throughout the 1.45 hour show. Great stuff.

On every visitors bucket list or it should be. Next to beautiful New Farm Park and fantastic river views with live free comedy and music often. The theatre is smallish but comfortable and the restaurants are very good.

Great restoration efforts which kept the original character of the powerhouse but added industrial chic and artsy touches throughout the building. Visited a few times and seen a show but also had heaps of fun just exploring the building. Great if you are in the area to just explore the place and even better to catch a show there.

We visited the powerhouse when we went to visit the New Farm park and the powerhouse was nearby. It was packed during lunch hours with diners and we were unable to get a seat. At night you can also dine here and enjoy the entertainment. On Friday nights, we were told that there are stand up comedy shows here too.... More

We visited this place for the first time based on a recommendation and enjoyed the leisurely city cat ride from Eagle Street Pier. Had a great meal at Watt and then later took a look around to view the artworks and visit the Mirror maze. Was a great way to spend a beautiful sunny day in Brisbane, enjoying great food,... More

Went there on a Friday night to catch the stand up comedy. It was nice and funny. Location is beside the river so it's cooling. Overall nice place to chill with friends.

Great spot for an evening out with friends. Place caters to a large number of people so great for people like me who are sick of little cafes and restaurant with communal feel taking over cities these days. Great drinks and ambiance to enjoy with friends or someone special by the water.

the powerhouse is a fantastic venue. even if you're not seeing a show it's definitely worth checking out. grab a drink at the bar and enjoy the views over the river. on weekends there are food trucks outside the venue. we went in a friday where they have free comedy performance which is great. if you can't get a car...

Finished an awesome weekend in the valley with a pretty average breakfast at powerhouse. Service was ordinary and ran out of ingredients with our meal which somehow still took an hour to get to our table. We had to confront them with regards to not receiving full meal as paid for. Maybe good for dinner and drinks but will not... More
