The Regatta Hotel est. 1874 – for every generation.
Queensland’s Hotel of the Year 2013
For 140 years Brisbane has met, mingled and created memories beyond the iron-laced verandahs of the iconic Regatta Hotel.
First established as a modest, single-story affair in 1874, the Regatta Hotel has witnessed some of Australia’s most memorable moments in time. Home to legendary sporting achievements and one of the first feminist insurgencies, our Grand Lady of the Brisbane River has withstood flood, fire and more than a century of change. Despite her evolution over the years, some things remained the same: her love for a cold beer, a great steak and the people who shared in her history.
Today, the Regatta family – here, interstate and abroad – return to create new stories each day. She now boasts the Boatshed, Front Bar, Courtyard, Street Café and Gaming Room, the results of a $10 million restoration following Brisbane’s 2011 floods. Her contemporary spaces also salute her history, making her a great pub that locals love. Driven by a passion for quality, authenticity and great customer service, the Regatta Hotel team is here to help guests relax and socialise in her beautiful, elegant surroundings.
The variety, sophistication and timelessness offered by the Regatta Hotel saw her crowned the reigning “Hotel of the Year” by the Queensland Hotels Association. And now, with her own CityCat terminal, the Regatta Hotel continues to carve her unique place in history.
Here’s “cheers” to the Grand Lady of the Brisbane River.
