Nice, relaxed and refined atmosphere with a wide drinks selection. Didn't end up eating there, had food at The Terrace bar upstairs instead which was very tasty.
BUT - the Piano Bar knew nothing of our reservation - they DON’T take reservations on Friday & Saturday nights, despite it being available/bookable on Open Table. Luckily they were quiet and had plenty of seating available.
Was also disappointed the advertised live piano/jazz wasn’t on over the Christmas/New Year period, this is the main reason we wanted to go.

My expectations of an Emporium dining experience were high (my Terrace dinner had been amazing) so I chose to bring my guest for ‘High Tini’ at the Piano Bar. But...
- firstly, my booking should not have been accepted on the website because there was a private function on in the Piano Bar at the time of my booking and it was closed to everyone else;
- the Food
- the waiter in Belle Époque seated us at the table under the dripping air conditioning unit. Thankfully it was a table for four so we moved ourselves to avoid the drips landing on my guest’s plate.
- the fruit flies hanging around the tiered plate and zipping around our heads did not make for relaxed conversation.
I was disappointed and embarrassed overall. Sadly, I learned that there are better value, lovelier environments for high tea in Brisbane.

Went for the High Tini on a Tuesday, was a lovely calm experience, the waiter/bartender was extremely attentive and kind. Food, coffee and mocktails were lovely too. Went with a friend and her newborn and we all enjoyed our High Tini experience.

Great place - fun experience. High tea with a difference. Would definitely recommend this option at The Emporium.
