Hidden behind the copper doors of the heritage-listed Queensland National Bank building, European-style wine bar Maeve Wine comes from the brains behind Hello Please, with chef Jessie Stevens heading up the food offering and wine directed by former Movida Melbourne wine buyer Eleanor Cappa. As the name Maeve Wine might suggest, wine comes first and foremost here. Eleanor has curated an impressive wine selection, which leans towards smaller producers and less conventional, minimal intervention drops, plus a Coravin and reserve list where you’ll find some seriously rare bottles. If wine’s not your speed, there is a ten-strong list of both beers and cocktails to quench your thirst. On the food front, Jessie has created a seasonally driven menu to complement the wine selection, designed mainly to share but that can easily be consumed as a solo venture. Ideally located opposite QPAC (and neighbouring Fish Lane), Maeve encourages pre- and post-show imbibing, with the kitchen serving from 4:00 pm right up until close at midnight. With this in mind, the bar and restaurant is built on a flexible dining model, catering to all dining styles and time restraints, with the menu divided into snacks, small and large plates, sides and desserts.
