Night Dining Now Served04 Jan 2020
The cult worthy reputations and cues say it all. Think Italian woodfire pizzas, authentic Shanghai dumplings and the most swoon-worthy views over Brisbane’s CBD – if night dining is what you are after, QP is sure to impress.
Here is a rundown of QueensPlaza’s new tried-and-tested dining hotspots to check out on your next night out.
Stanton Cafe and Bar
One step into Stanton Café and Bar and you’re instantly transported to a boujee breakfast, a luxe lunch or decadent dinner setting.
Curated by award-winning interior designer Melissa Collison, the space marries strategic lightening, eclectic style and chandeliers with antiques, woven Persian rugs and bespoke wallpaper ready to grace your Instagram feed. Think Old Melbourne meets lofty New York City.
With lounge, sit down dining space and an outdoor terrace overlooking Brisbane’s CBD, it is easy to see how afternoon drinks could transition to a late-night dinner.
Whilst the venue may be luxurious, Stanton offers comfort foods and bite sized shares galore. Popular orders include the signature Stanton pie, steak fries and chipotle burger. For those wanting something a little more deluxe, try the light double baked crab soufflé – something not often found on an inner-city menu.
Finish with a drink at Stanton’s rounded timber bar, perfect for after work drinks or a post shipping sip and choose from a carefully curated wine list showcasing boutique brands and an extensive high-quality cocktail list. We recommend the spiced rum and ginger.

New Shanghai’s signature dumplings have secured a deserved cult following. The menu is filled with genuine Chinese specialties - including a variety of wontons and dim sums, crab meat Xiao Long Bao, braised pork belly and salt and pepper prawns.
