WE’RE BREATHING LIFE INTO ONE OF OUR CITY’S MOST HISTORICAL SITES BY BRINGING THE BEST OF BRISBANE TOGETHER. COME DOWN TO THE RIVERFRONT AND RE-IMAGINE THE WAY YOU EAT, DRINK, PLAY AND STAY.

HSW – for Brisbane, by Brisbane.

Howard Smith Wharves, Brisbane’s newest entertainment and lifestyle destination. Celebrating the site’s unique position beneath the Story Bridge, it’s city and river views add yet another cultural dimension to our lively inner city.

A new riverside precinct loved by residents and visitors; a place to connect and celebrate the best of what Brisbane has to offer.

We’re bringing life back to the river – a reimagined green space dancing on the edge of the concrete jungle, the bright lights a beautiful backdrop for our vibrant new world. Howard Smith Wharves is now home to Felons Brewing Co, Mr Percival’s Overwater Bar, GRECA Greek Taverna, ARC Dining and Wine Bar, abundant green spaces and picnic areas, two unique indoor event spaces, a brand-new boutique hotel by Art-Series ‘The Fantauzzo’, and additional riverside restaurants still to come.

Come on down to the riverfront and celebrate the best of what Brisbane has to offer!
