Doo-bop Jazz Bar
Doo-Bop Jazz Bar brings great jazz and fine dining to the streets of Brisbane, with a Brasserie and Piano Bar that on any day of the week resemble a happening New York jazz bar.
With jazz art deco adorning the walls and coloured lighting to set the theme, it’s the perfect place to wind down after a busy day or to enjoy the ambience. There is booth seating, general dining and bar seating available.
Downstairs is where the party erupts - the basement level showcases a large stage with a 1955 refurbished grand piano – all the way from New York. This is where the jazz magic happens, as evenings in the basement are ticketed events for all the hottest jazz artists in town. There is plenty of room for relaxing on the couch, dining on tables or grooving to the music.
The menu in the Piano Bar features Improv dishes which are ideal for snacking with a few beverages. Otherwise, order off their main menu which includes light dishes that are ideal for sharing, as well as some delectable mains. Popular dishes include the slow roasted pork belly, which is served with salted cod polenta and pickled fennel.
The confit duck leg is another highly recommended dish, served with a beautiful braised lentil salsa, red cabbage and bacon. Be sure to leave room for dessert, as the banoffee pie is heaven on a plate.
The drinks menu is abundant with high quality wines, tap beers, bottled beers, cocktails and cold drinks. These are available both downstairs in the basement and upstairs in the piano bar.
Events in the basement feature a range of talented jazz bands, with events happening each and every week. Ensure to pre-book to secure a ticket as they are sell outs.
Need to know – Limited paid parking is available around the CBD.
