  • Great for brunch
  • Hot spot
  • Lively
Perfectly poised at the entrance of The Calile Hotel and spilling into vibrant Ada Lane, Lobby Bar is the ideal spot to wile away the day until it ebbs into the night. Head Chef, Andy Gunn has designed a progressive French style menu utilising local produce and rooftop ingredients for breakfast, lunch, bar snacks and dinner taster options so you can pop in at all hours, leave satiated and begin planning your next visit.

Behind the bar - a cocktail menu which nods to the classics while offering its own flavour of reinvention complimenting a wine list that celebrates local and international wine makers. With windows that throw open, breathing in the Brisbane climate, Lobby Bar is your destination for a single morning espresso or a night of working your way through the cocktail list.

A space that is a celebration of its surrounds, as perfect for one as it is for many, Lobby Bar will fast become your go to in James Street.

    The Calile Lobby Bar is an elegant and beautiful space to meet with friends just for a drink or a a drink and delicious tapas. It’s fun, with the added bonus of people-watching from the sidewalk space. This venue has a ❤️.

    It’s a wonderful ambience and divine for a drink or bite to eat. The burger wasn’t that great for the price unfortunately but other items looked very good.

    Always a great place for a bite to eat . The menu was not as extensive as it’s been in the past ( maybe due to holiday season ) Friendly professional service . Food is fresh and delicious.
