As June approaches, get ready for Brisbane’s annual culinary celebrations to transform The City into an epicentre of epicurean extravagance. From June 1–30, a sizzling selection of more than 55 of Brisbane’s best restaurants and bars will showcase ​its spectacular food scene with a jam-packed program full to bursting with culinary events as part of Dine BNE City.

Gather in the Garden
The perfect way to Thank God It’s Friday and welcome in the weekend is to head down to Gather Bistro’s Gather in the Garden on June 7. For one enchanted evening, nature’s embrace meets urban elegance in an event tailored to delight all of the senses. Immerse yourself in the lush greenery of a rainforest garden bar, sipping on an array of handcrafted cocktails and spritzes, and snacking on a delectable selection of offerings from classic cicchetti to authentic Roman pinsas, all while the rhythmic beats of a live DJ transport you to a world of sonic serenity. The perfect blend of relaxation and revelry, Gather in the Garden is free to enter for all. Find out more here.

On Saturday June 29, traverse through a treasure chest of Brisbane City venues like Babylon, Embassy Hotel, Miss Demeanor, Port Office Hotel, The Gresham, Tillerman, Walter’s Steakhouse & Wine Bar and more as they transform into urban cellar doors.
