The venue re-opens after full renovation
Bonny View Hotel has undergone an extensive $1.3 million renovation to make it the perfect venue for the local community, whatever experience they are looking for. Formerly Bonny View Tavern, the landmark hotel will reveal its new look on Thursday 20th August and guests can look forward to a fun opening weekend from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd August.
Patrons will notice the transformation immediately, with Brisbane architects Push completely revamping the outside to create a contemporary and welcoming look.
Every space within the venue has been renovated and the modern dining room now offers a relaxed, family-friendly environment that is ideal for casual weeknight dinners, long weekend lunches and group celebrations. The outdoor bistro seamlessly flows from the inside and customers can enjoy the Queensland weather while the little ones play in the new kids’ area.
The menu has also had a re-vamp, now offering locals an elevated, gastropub-style experience. Alongside the pub classics, guests will find a range of quality Riverina Angus steaks and new mains such as salmon fillets, plant-based bangers & mash and Bonny View Chicken Kiev. The grazing menu is perfect for the alfresco spaces, with choices including pulled chicken tacos, wagyu brisket croquettes and baked half-shell scallops.
For those looking for a pub atmosphere, the front bar is classic public bar territory, complete with live acoustic music on the weekends. There are screens to catch all the live sports action as well as a TAB offering. The public bar leads to a beautiful covered outdoor deck that is sure to be popular in the summer months, especially with the new cocktail pitchers as refreshments. The bar menu is filled with all the pub classics, as well as the Bonny View signature dish, the Parmi Dog – perfect to enjoy with an ice-cold beer.
Furry friends are not forgotten, with a dog-friendly area outside and puppy snacks available.
The opening weekend celebrations will include a locals’ night on Friday 21st August, where customers can enjoy a selection of free roving tasters of food and beverages. Sunday 23rd August will be family fun day so children can try out the new play area and enjoy kids’ entertainment from 1–3pm in the outdoor dining area.
And, for those keen to try Brisbane’s first parmi hot dog, 150 parmi dogs will be given away over the opening weekend (Friday–Sunday), customers simply register online to claim a voucher. But they had better get in quick as the parmi dog takes parmis and hot dogs to another level – a crumbed chicken sausage on a soft hot dog bun topped with sweet Napoli sauce, crispy bacon and liquid cheese.
After being a landmark hotel for over eight decades, Bonny View Hotel is looking forward to revealing its new look and welcoming back locals.
