Grand Central Hotel
When it comes to the major categories for assessing the merits of a quintessential Australian pub, a few key categories have to be looked at. Food, drink and entertainment are crucially important for the success of any pub, and the Grand Central Hotel on Ann Street scores highly in each category. The iconic drinking and dining destination has been bringing the goods for years. As a place to eat and drink, Grand Central offers three distinct nooks – Fihelley’s Bar, Platform Bar and The Dining Car – to park your caboose for the evening. The food menu offers a great range of burgers, schnitzels, grilled dishes and unique mains, while the bar is stocked with a great range of beer, wine and spirits. On Saturday nights, the Grand Central Hotel plays host to Trainspotters, one of the longest running live and local music nights in Brisbane. Grand Central also offers function packages for those seeking a central location to hold their next event.
