Two weeks of dining deals arriving in Brisbane


By Georgia Parsonson 

Brisbane residents will be offered two weeks of dining deals in May as an initiative to revitalise the city’s dining scene drastically affected during the pandemic. 

More than 50 different restaurants and bars are part of the “Dine BNE City” from 13 to the 30th of May.

“Brisbane has amazing restaurants and bars, offering everything from sophisticated suppers to relaxed riverside lunches and hidden laneway cocktail bars,” Brisbane’s Lord Mayor, Adrian Schrinner, said.

“This campaign will make it incredibly tempting for locals and visitors to enjoy a meal or drink out, with 80 delicious lunch, dinner and bar offerings across 50 city venues.

“From a $25 lunch and drink deal at Blackbird Bar & Grill to a $99 eight-course Japanese tasting menu at Sake, people will be able to experience some of Brisbane’s best venues at a very competitive price.”

Many of these restaurants and bars experienced a decrease in lunch and post-work patronage with the pandemic and have not yet recovered.

“I’m confident these two weeks of offers will bring the economic boost many of these traders have been patiently waiting for,” he said.

Dine BNE City will conclude with ‘Sea to the City’ on Sunday the 30th of May. It will mark the return of Moreton Bay bugs, oysters, and a seafood trail throughout the CBD.

“There will be 16 riverside restaurants putting forward their best seafood offerings on this day, so if you love sensational seafood, this is the event for you,” Schrinner said.
