New bar opens in Woolloongabba

May 3, 2017 by  

A bar with the name Electric Avenue has recently opened within Woolloongabba.

Electric Avenue is being operated by Canvas, which already runs another bar in the area. Flyers from Woolloongabba may now be used to promote both venues.

Electric Avenue was Crosstown Public House in a former life, and the new bar offers a vintage element. Dan Rodriguez, Nick Royds and Bodie Schofield are the proprietors of the place. Rodriguez, explaining his intentions, told Good Food:

“We really want to light up Logan Road. Make it an even more awesome precinct to enjoy some of the best food and booze in Brisbane. By the end of the night we want people to be dancing.”

The list of bar snacks includes pork crackling, chips and burgers, and the meals have been described as ‘Euro-style’. Customers can order duck breast with smoked potatoes, while quail and mushrooms is an alternative selection. Chestnut and artichoke ravioli is also on the menu. Emphasis is being placed on the delivery of customer service.

The chef is Will Quartel – an American who has worked at Teneriffe’s Sourced Grocer. A range of cocktails are on offer. A concealed bar upstairs is called Jack Rabbits, and this stocks additional treats.

The bar opens at noon and closes at midnight. People can eat and drink there from Monday to Saturday.
