If wining and dining is your kind of party, City Winery is a team experience to remember, or savour a feast of bold Thai flavours at the Naga Thai. Fatcow Steak and Lobster’s array of dining areas and succulent menu and beverage options will be a treat for your guests, while a festive fiesta is a guarantee at Rico Bar & Dining. While overlooking the Brisbane River, it would be rude not to sample Australia’s freshest seafood at George’s Paragon, or dive into the innovative Japanese culture at Saké Restaurant & Bar.
