Herve's Restaurant and Bar


Herve's Restaurant and Bar is a stunning loft-style French restaurant and bar occupying the top floor of an old dance studio in an historic Albion timber mill.

Run by a posse of esteemed hospitality veterans, including Herve Dudogne (ex- Hotel de Crillon in Paris, Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong, Merivale in Sydney, Palazzo Versace and Stanley at Howard Smith Wharves) and his wife Cristina at the helm, with chefs Chris and Alex Norman in the kitchen, Herve's is a new shining star in Brisbane's dining scene.

The jewel in the crown of Craft'd Grounds, the old timber mill-turned dining and drinking hub, Herve's is accessed via Brewtide downstairs, where, to the rear, a set of stairs and a lift take you to the next floor.

The striking raked-ceiling space is divided into two, with a chic lounge bar featuring a terrazzo topped bar to one side of the stairs and elevator and the dining room, with its exposed iron beams, polished wooden floors and bespoke lighting to the other.
