215 Brisbane Road‚ Booval

The Racehorse Hotel has earned a reputation for its diverse offerings as an entertainment and family-friendly dining hub.

An impressive line-up of gigs by renowned touring artists in the huge public bar has helped cement its place as a major live music venue in the city.

Birds of Tokyo, Shannon Noll, The Black Sorrows, Pseudo Echo, Thirsty Merc, The Superjesus and Shepherd are just a few of the many acts to have performed there.

In late 2018, the hotel’s new Grillhouse restaurant was unveiled, revealing a contemporary fit-out, a produce-driven menu and an extended wine list.
