Proud Mary is a sprawling New Orleans-flavoured riverside bar restaurant on the ground floor of the Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm.

Afternoons and evenings, this is a great spot to enjoy a casual bite to eat either before or after a show upstairs at the Brisbane Powerhouse or a light breakfast or lunch while on weekends Proud Mary serves a signature brunch that is unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere in Brisbane.
