Heritage Bank Bar – Opening Soon
The grand heritage-listed Bank of New South Wales Building on the corner of George Street and Queen Street Mall is set to have a new lease on life, reimagined as an impressive 1930s-style bar. A development application has been submitted to Brisbane City Council, with the proposal taking inspiration from the likes of London’s The Old Bank of England bar and The NoMad Hotel in New York. Preliminary plans will maximise on the building’s already resplendent heritage space and finishes, featuring a large central bar, lobby and several seating areas, as well as proposed outdoor seating in Queen Street Mall. Styling will have a distinct 1930s feel, with the application presenting dark heritage colours, timber panels and Chesterfield lounges offset by lighter finishes and colours in the double-height space. The bar is yet to be approved by Council – we’ll keep you posted.
