Brisbane is getting a slick new jazz venue that wouldn’t be out of place in Greenwich Village.
The Doo-Bop Jazz Bar, named after the last studio album recorded by Miles Davis, is set to open on Edward Street in June.
It’ll be spread over two levels and dedicated to all things jazz.
The ground floor will be a jazz cafe by day and a piano bar by night, where you can dine while you sit by the classic Yamaha C7 grand piano and enjoy live entertainment. It’ll be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a full cocktail bar.
Downstairs in the basement level, you’ll find a full-on live jazz venue, complete with a large stage graced by a fully restored 1955 Steinway B grand piano from New York.
Shows in the basement will include jazz trios, jazz fusion, big band, and Brisbane’s unique style of trad jazz. Of course, there’s also a full cocktail bar in the basement.
The Doo-Bop Jazz Bar (101 Edward Street, Brisbane City) is expected to open in June. The ground level will be open from 6am to 3am, while the basement will open from 6pm ’til late.
