Sitting pretty next to The Westin Brisbane’s Mary Street lobby is The Charles’. Named after aviation royalty Sir Charles Kingsford Smith and Charles Ulm, this street-side jazz bar offers a charming welcome to guests and revellers. Natural sunlight beams through floor-to-ceiling windows, highlighting The Charles’ retro-cool furnishings – each splashed with bold colours and funky shapes. The Charles’ will firstly act as a handy meeting point in the mornings, with a daily pastry selection available in addition to a concise breakfast menu of eggs your way, Belgian waffles and overnight oats offering some nourishing day starters. As the morning shifts to afternoon, an array of crusty French baguettes, tapas-style eats including artisan cheeses, cured, smoked and marinated meats and fish arrives alongside larger plates such as Noosa prawn spaghetti and house-smoked turkey BLTs. A curved bar offers everything from seasonal cocktails to local craft and international beer and a curated wine list, while a champagne and sparkling trolley spruiks a selection of Australian and international bubbles.
