Five of the Best Places for a Birthday Celebration

New year, new birthday! Whether you’re planning on a full-blown celebration or a quiet one with those you love most, finding the perfect restaurant to blow those candles out is an essential. Without further ado, we present you with our ultimate guide to b-day celebrations at The Bank…

1. The Charming Squire
A notch above the average bar and grill, The Charming Squire offers an INCREDIBLE dining experience, right in the heart of Grey Street. All about honest and unfussy (yet so delectable) food, they’re sure to tick everybody’s boxes; they even brew a selection of their famous James Squire beverages in-house… we’re sold! PLUS, if you’re looking to cater for an army, they have multiple function rooms that are set to impress.

2. French Martini
This sophisticated and sexy French restaurant makes for one incredibly aesthetic experience (*cough* Insta-worthy *cough*). French fare such as baguettes, parfait and charcuterie are the specialty at French Martini – how else would you want to celebrate your b-day? They also serve up arguably the best crème brulee in town. Treat yourself, it’s your birthday, after all…

3. The Sangria Bar
Who needs an excuse to drink sangria? This little treasure is tucked away next to its sister restaurant, Ole, dishing up authentic Spanish cuisine within an intimate, beautifully styled setting. The Sangria Bar also serve up seven varieties of sangria (hello, crowd pleaser!), and so in our opinion, is the ideal spot to celebrate your birthday!

4. Popolo
Mamma mia! If you like Italian (don’t we all), we’ve sure got a goodie for you! With fresh antipasto, pasta, pizza and all-things Italian, Popolo ticks allllllll of the boxes for a fabulous birthday celebration. There’s something super heart-warming about indulging in Italian eats made with love, whilst overlooking Brisbane’s amazing skyline… it’s your birthday, you deserve it!

5. Denim Co.
Who said brunch was off the cards for the ultimate birthday celebration? No matter how many new brunch spots pop-up in Brisbane, we’ll always be loyal to Denim Co… we just can’t get enough of their decadent breakfast fare! Tucked into Little Stanley Street, this fun and quirky café houses an irresistible selection of sweets, coffee and casual dining options for the ultimate start to your birthday.

Take me to The Charming Squire and French Martini and The Sangria Bar and Popolo and Denim Co.
