The Gresham is the only Bar with a heritage License in Queensland.

Steeped in history, we have done our very best to maintain and preserve our historical surrounds.

The Gresham offers some of the highest calibre rum, whiskey and wine in the country. The extensive and progressive cocktail list are only able to be crafted by the best bartenders in the industry.

Table bookings not accepted – First come, first serve – Group bookings available (groups of 15 pax and up, minimum spends apply).

Opened in late 2013, The Gresham is certainly a unique space. We pay homage to our heritage and history not only through the various items displayed in our venue, but also through our old-schools service that remains, hospitable. The Gresham has a progressive view on drinks – we appreciate trends, however we are not one to follow the crowd.
We welcome people regardless of what they are wearing, it makes for a more interesting clientele and dynamic within The Gresham – we opened our doors with the opinion, we have an attitude policy, not a dress policy.

 The Gresham isn’t a specific whiskey or rum or cocktail or wine bar – but it does have all of the best on offer.
We are on a constant quest, purveying the finest beverages, and bringing them to Brisbane
