Brisbane’s best Late Night Restaurants

From dumplings to greasy burgers, we've found Brisbane's best late night restaurants to satisfy any late night hunger cravings.

By Lucy Stephens | 4th September 2014

Whether it’s wanting a late romantic dinner after work or a post Friday night out food binge, we have all experienced the inconvenience of restaurants closing too early. This often results in ending up at a 24-hour Maccas and leaving with a greasy burger in your hand. Instead of making your way to the nearest drive through the next time you’re feeling peckish after 9.30pm, redirect your appetite towards one of these; late night restaurants dishing up dinner at a time that suits you.

This award-winning restaurant perched high above the CBD’s legal precinct boasts sophisticated late-night nosh, including their famous KFD (Kentucky Fried Duck). Which tastes even better washed down with some of the best cocktails in town.
