This genre-defying venue aims to unearth the city’s next headline artists, showcasing homegrown talent at the forefront of a dynamic rotation of live acts and late-night entertainment.

With its invigorating ambiance and breathtaking river vistas, the venue seeks to transport guests through a unique night of discovery, featuring heart-stirring solo performances, adrenaline-inducing headliners, side-splitting comedy acts, and classic Australian anthems. 

Whether basking in melodies or succumbing to the irresistible pull of the dancefloor, LiveWire will serve as a beacon for Brisbane’s burgeoning music scene.

Building upon the beloved LiveWire 24/7 Sports Bar at Treasury Brisbane, this newly announced venue provides an additional platform for Brisbane’s vibrant arts community. Alongside a dedicated Sports Bar, LiveWire aims to further enhance the entertainment experience by introducing a specialised live entertainment space.

Kelvin Dodt, The Star Brisbane’s Chief Operating Officer of Hospitality, emphasised that this exciting new chapter will honour the exuberant energy and entertainment synonymous with the iconic LiveWire brand whilst showcasing and celebrating some of the region’s biggest and brightest stars.

“The Star is committed to supporting and presenting the best of Queensland whether it’s local produce, art or music and entertainment,” said Mr Dodt.

“Brisbane is building a well-deserved reputation as a world class city and as such needs a vibrant night-time entertainment economy that thrives every day of the week.”

“LiveWire will contribute to Brisbane’s cultural fabric and ensure the city’s new multi-billion-dollar project reenergises a previously underutilised riverside precinct through entertainment, dining, art and unique experiences for everyone to enjoy and embrace their way.”

Boasting an open, lively atmosphere with panoramic river views, the sleek yet vibrant LiveWire venue will serve up a variety of signature cocktails, like ‘The Rocktail’ – a sweet, citrusy blend of strawberry and passionfruit puree, echoing the space’s energetic vibe. Special booth packages will also be available for events and celebrations.
