The Foundry is a unique creative hub, combining a 300-person live-music room with a bar, rehearsal space, band accommodation and 20 creative studios. Grab a beer, shoot some pool or kick back in the beer garden, before catching a gig in the adjoining room. Upstairs, what was once a bunch of backpacker rooms has now been converted into an office space for local booking agents, publicists, street press and 4ZZZ. Check out The Foundry’s gig listings via Facebook.
As of September 14, 2020, The Foundry is closing its doors at 228 Wickham Street. But do not fret, music lovers, this is not goodbye! While The Foundry is farewelling its original home, it will be moving into a new bigger and better space in Fortitude Valley so soon. The move was sparked by new ownership for the iconic 228 Wickham Street hotel building, with the new owners undertaking a refurbishment to the heritage building and reverting to its original name, The Price Consort. The refurbishment will introduce some exciting new spaces, and the hotel will remain a place where music is made and loved – more on this in the coming weeks.
