Friday’s Riverside Review

Review By Ellen Begley

Fridays Riverside is an iconic nightspot situated alongside the Brisbane River in the heart of the CBD. Boasting views of the historic Story Bridge, Friday’s Riverside is the perfect location for after work drinks or an enjoyable night out. It offers a toned down clubbing experience with a few bars, a decent dancing area, good drinks and a well-dressed crowd.

The decor at Friday’s Riverside is modern, with the recent addition of the Glamour Bar adding some sparkle to the venue. The Glamour Bar is an intimate cocktail bar nestled away at the back of the venue in a laneway-like space with soft lighting. Outside, there is a large seating area overlooking the Brisbane River and the outdoor bar areas are sleek and clean. There are couches inside to help you relax, music you can dance or sing along to and enough bartenders to keep the drinks flowing.

With such an impressive outlook, the drinks at Friday’s Riverside are not as cheap as some of Brisbane’s other bars and clubs. Basics are about $8.50 and there is a decent cocktail list to choose from too. If drinking isn’t for you, a full dine – in menu is available at the Terrace Grill and some nibbles are also on offer from the Glamour Bar. The staff at Friday’s Riverside like to look after their patrons, so there is usually buckets of bottled water on offer to keep you refreshed throughout the night.

Friday’s Riverside tries to maintain a somewhat exclusive atmosphere, with a dress code enforced at the door and a $12 cover charge imposed after 9:00pm from Thursday to Saturday. Male patrons may also be charged a $6 cover charge at other times. As the venue’s name suggests, Friday is the busiest night of the week at Friday’s Riverside and arguably the best night to take advantage of this renowned nightspot.Early in the evening, Friday’s Riverside is a buzzing bar where young professionals unwind after a hard day. As the night wears on, it takes on a more club-like feel as university students, some travellers and other young people looking for a good night join the crowd. Sporting stars and local identities often frequent this city establishment, so you never know who you might see!

Although the queues to Friday’s Riverside can sometimes be quite long, the overall experience offered at this venue is definitely worth the wait.

A 2nd Fridays Riverside Review

Review By Catherine Torbey

Overlooking the river and the glistening nightlights of the city, Friday’s Riverside is a central aspect to Brisbane. Planted right in the middle of Brisbane’s heart, Friday’s is the perfect place to relax with friends, enjoy a meal or dance the night away, making it the number one place to be on a Friday night!

Located on Eagle Street, Friday’s is simply a walk from many of the workplaces and business districts in the city, making it the perfect place for after work drinks. On a Friday afternoon the place is buzzing, filled with workers who have retired from a busy week, and gradually gaining a younger crowd as the night wears on. It doesn’t only come to life on a Friday though: the vibrant and energetic heart of this restaurant, bar and club is beating throughout the weekend! Saturday nights tend to adopt a more youthful atmosphere, as the majority of clubbers are under 30 and are looking for a big night out on the town.

Friday’s is glossy, modern and glamorous. The highly sought after riverside views are just a bonus to the stunning decor and sleek architecture. Consisting of the Terrace and Grill, Glamour Bar, Grand Deck, Wine Room and Waterline Restaurant, Friday’s creates a modern take on a classic Brisbane hotspot. There is a large outdoor area with tables and seating which overlook the river, and an indoor section with some killer DJ’s just for dancing! Couches are also situated around the venue in order to create a comfortable and relaxed experience for you. If you decide to grab a meal before hitting the dance floor, Friday’s restaurants include a delectable and eclectic menu that caters to all. This bar and restaurant also caters to functions, big and small, and pride themselves on making your event memorable.

Whilst the prices at Friday’s may be a bit more expensive than your typical bar with basics starting from around $8, you will be enjoying mouth watering cocktails in a place with the best views in Brisbane! A dress code enforced at the door as well as a $12 cover charge after 9 pm ensures that Friday’s remains exclusive and elite; one of Brisbane’s top notch and finest quality clubs. The atmosphere is fun and entertaining, with all its club-goers there to have a great night out. Whilst Friday’s is usually packed and bustling with people, the friendly and hard working bar staff manage to attend to each person with little wait, leaving you with no complaints!

Good food, drinks and dancing, with amazing riverside views – what more could you want for a night out? A central part of Brisbane’s heart and soul, Friday’s is the place to be seen this weekend!
