Donna Chang

Giving a gentle nod to Sichuan flavours and authentic Cantonese cuisine, Donna Chang unites a respected team of industry leaders from both international and interstate origins to open our new venue this July. Modern Chinese is the goal here, having sourced the very best local ingredients to create inspired dishes that educate & excite, with a wine & cocktail list that follows suit. As with the menu, the venue’s design pays tribute to old and new with a refreshed interior, alongside the original neo-classical features of the stunning Heritage-listed building in which Donna Chang resides. Truly, a dining experience that ignites all the senses.

Coming soon...

Boom Boom Room

Opening this July, an opulent basement-level cocktail lounge where the building’s bank vaults once were. Boom Boom Room fuses avant-garde design and an elevated cocktail list to form a unique lounge bar experience that pushes the envelope for Brisbane. Tributing the building’s age, jazz, blues & soul sounds can be enjoyed from the luxurious booths, as can our premium table-service concept which will leave you wanting for nothing. An evolved experience, Boom Boom Room is not a step back in time nor an urban construct, instead, it projects its own silky reality that is eclectic, superlative and above all, a good time.

Coming soon...
