Summer is about to get a whole lot better for those in the CBD with Aria co-owners Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan opening their latest creation this Friday. Located on the promenade level of Riparian Plaza, Riverbar & Kitchen aims to represent the Queensland lifestyle with a laid back, outdoor restaurant that turns into a hot nightspot with prime river and Story Bridge views.
Open seven days a week, Riverbar & Kitchen will appeal to the many local lunchtime diners, but also tourists looking for a picturesque eating spot, and for revelers looking to celebrate.
“The aim is for Riverbar & Kitchen to be the ultimate casual one-stop-shop for people to eat, drink, and socialise along the river,” Sullivan said. “Our menus offer options to take people through the week and into the weekend, from morning coffees to after-five drinks and cocktails, and light breakfasts to evening bites of shared plates, grills, and pizzas.”
The cocktail menu can be enjoyed individually or in shared punch jugs. For those looking to share a fresh summer drink in this hot weather, Riverbar & Kitchen will be serving jugs of Pimms and white sangria ($25). Food you can expect to enjoy includes the snow crab slider with pickled cornichons and buttermilk bun ($9), as well as a bucket of prawns with lemon and cocktail sauce ($20).
A 20-metre-long bar extends from indoors out to the boardwalk beer garden, which features several big screen televisions and a tropical garden setting. The venue’s interior is inspired by quintessential Queensland elements, such as VJ weatherboards, bleached wood, and an eclectic mix of nautical vintage pieces.
Riverbar & Kitchen sounds like the Queensland dream, we cannot wait to try it.
