Half Pint Kitchen + Bar
Bowen Hills watering hole Half Pint Kitchen + Bar is a laid-back locale that aims to be an extension of one’s living room – complete with games and snacks on hand. The 70-seater haunt boasts an Art-Deco-meets-industrial aesthetic, with interior and outside spaces perfect for leisurely lounging with pals or solo. Half Pint guests can pick up a tome at the bar’s mini library or initiate some friendly competition over one of the bar’s many boardgames or Foosball table. Half Pint’s menu offers up simple and satisfying light meals, drool-worthy share plates and hearty helpings ideal for hoarding. Groups can mix and match options, grazing on a combination of battered onion bites, house-made hummus, chicken-liver pate and crispy spiced-buttermilk chicken. If your hunger levels dictate a desire for larger servings, the menu features potato gnocchi carbonara, six-hour beef-cheek ragu, sauteed garlic king prawns, steaks, chicken schnitzel toasties and classic beef burgers. Regulars are encouraged to offer feedback on the menu configuration, with the Half Pint team eager to tailor the list based on community demand. The same goes for the bar offering, which encompasses local craft and mainstream beers and a punchy wine list (including a non-alcoholic variety), with a signature cocktail list currently in the works.
