Perched above Brisbane’s CBD, retreat, rendezvous, revel or all the above at The Inchcolm By Ovolo. The neo-Georgian design from late 1800’s pays homage to the building’s time of prestige and resident physicians, with subtle hints of musical undertones and an air of rhapsody.

Bringing back the golden age of dining to Brisbane with timeless classics, The Inchcolm Bar’s carefully crafted menu pays tribute to a bygone era when cocktails were clinically endorsed, martinis and spirits were king, and bartenders celebrated.

We invite you to choose the perfectly cosy spot and unwind, relax and enjoy a tipple or two in solitude.

    It was a lovely evening to perfection. Three margaritas and two courses. The food was to die for, drinks perfect, service wonderful and attentive, ambience the best. The only negative was the jazz was too loud which made it difficult to talk. He was a great singer but just needed to turn it down a bit. Make it softer.

    Food was superb, and cocktails potent(!). The single live jazz ambience made for a warm, relaxing feel, though a 2 or 3 piece may have fit the marketing better. I love the charm of historic building- the entry, front parlour, bar and hall, but the dining area with that curtain drawn didn’t give any sense of it.

    We visited this venue on a Saturday jazz night. Expecting to be entertained by 2 musicians, but was one keyboard/singer, who was delightful. Ambience, food, service was all great. My biggest problem was the AC was close to not working. We and the other patrons were quietly suffering, which distracted me from enjoying the entire experience. The building, history, decor etc are also worth a visit.

The atmosphere is amazing, the staff are always incredibly attentive and always seem genuinely happy to welcome you with a big smile and excellent service. The food is always delicious and I look forward to going whether it be for dinner or just a quiet drink. Thankyou for a very pleasant experience always.

    We had the 3 martini and 2 course lunch for $79. The venue, food and cocktails were fantastic. It was however, the customer service that blew me away - probably the best I have had. I wish I had taken note of our waitress/Supervsior’s name. The dogs coming in and out of the hotel added something extra. I will definitely be going back and an overnight stay is now on my to do list. I am going to try their other hotels/restaurants.

    The 3 Martini dinner is wonderful and great value. The ambience is lovely. The service was disappointing. There seemed to be lots of staff but they pretty much left us alone and we needed to ask for more water and our next round of drinks. We might have ordered deserts, coffees etc. if we'd been asked.

    Fairly disappointing experience after hearing otherwise good reviews. Poor service and lack of awareness by staff I.e. waited approx 20 minutes for water, after having to ask. 2/3 meals brought out were incorrect. Otherwise, ambiance was good and drinks were nice.

    First time for dinner and we would go back. The food was nice but my fiancé ordered medium well for his steak and it came out closer to medium rare. Not a huge selection for meals but an extensive drinks menu. The jazz musician was a lovely touch and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our wait staff were second to none, so very attentive, happy and actually smiled while providing their service. The service and atmosphere is what would have us come back.

    Went for the 3course martini dinner. The drinks were the best part of the dinner. Some of the staff were excellent and gave a great vibe but there was unfortunately one who was so aloof that it brought it all down. Service was very slow. The area used for dinner must normally be a bar and should stay that way. As a hotel they had guests checking in with bags etc and dogs - that is all normal but didn’t create the “Parisian salon” Experience they try to promote.

    Thanks for your honest feedback Tmcc, it seems you dined on a night that didn't meet yours or our normally high expectations! I would love the opportunity to get you back to show you we can wow our guests with an expectational experience. If you would like to reach out via email (sent privately) we'd love the opportunity to show you the real Inchcolm experience. Thanks, Josh Bereshezckiy Venue Manager

    Our experience at The Inchcolm was unforgettable. Everything was perfect - the ambience, the staff, the food and the three martini’s we enjoyed as part of the the Martini Dinner special. Have dinner for us at the Inchcolm bar was more of an experience than just dinner. The staff treated us so beautifully. It was perfection! We have already started recommending it to our fiends. Thank you so much for making my husbands birthday so memorable, including singing happy birthday to him and putting a candle on his tiramisu. We will be back for sure!

    We dined at the Inchcolm for the Three Martini Dinner, it was truly exquisite 👌🏼 the choices for each course well and truly cater to everyone’s tastes and the martini’s were really well matched, it was also great to try some drinks we probably wouldn’t have just chosen off the menu, I’ll definitely have the three they recommend again. Can’t wait to come back and try the other items on the menu 🙌🏼😋
