Motorwagen

Brisbane Cbd

Motorwagen is a stunning contemporary café, restaurant and bar found in Brisbane’s CBD, offering a refined dining experience without pretence.

Named after the world’s first petrol powered car, patented by Karl Benz, Motorwagen is a collaboration between restauranteur Sam Pask (Otto Brisbane, Urbane) and Mercedes-Benz.

This stylish city eatery is striking with an industrial chic fit-out – think exposed brick and concrete. Customers can dine al fresco on the terrace overlooking Adelaide Street or in the sophisticated dining room with burnt orange banquet seating.
