The Terrace’s Bar

  • Written by Emma Brown


The Terrace, Emporium Hotel South Bank’s magnificent rooftop bar and dining venue, has launched a brand-new signature cocktail menu just in time for summer.  Reflecting the subtropical tropical luxe character and refreshing vibrancy of the spectacular space and location, the menu showcases a range of premium, locally sourced ingredients and seasonal inspirations with a degree of theatricality and original presentation.


The new cocktail menu utilises a range of techniques to create unique flavour profiles, aromas and textures for a memorable experience with an element of surprise.  The selection of delicious cocktails also feature a variety of fun with share-style creations for two to four people.


The Terrace’s Bar Manager, Jacky Chu, said,


“Our new signature list provides a completely unique, elevated cocktail experience.  We have focused on raising the bar to create a multi-sensory offering through a progressive and modern approach.  This all adds to the stunning backdrop that we have at The Terrace.”


“There is simply no venue in Brisbane like The Terrace, with its unbeatable views, inventive design, vibrancy and energy.  It provides the ultimate oasis of luxe contemporary elegance and has been a key source of inspiration in crafting this menu.  Our range of cocktails is in keeping with our theme of surprising and delighting our guests.”
