Mr Percival’s: Brisbane’s First Overwater Bar at the Howard Smith Wharves is now Open

Brisbane’s first overwater bar has opened, located at the Howard Smith Wharves and underneath the historic Story Bridge.

Mr Percival’s officially opened on 29 November 2018, and is the latest drinking and dining destination to open at the Howard Smith Wharves development after the successful opening of Felons Brewing Co.

Anna Spiro was responsible for the impressive design that breathed life to this 340-seat bar and eatery. The inspiration was taken from European beach clubs and rotundas found in Brisbane parks; featuring an octagonal-shape design, terracotta-coloured marble top, salmon pink umbrellas, timber walls, and retro-inspired interior.

The octagonal-shaped bar is helmed by chef Damien Styles, former head chef of The Fish House. The menu features Aperitivo-style inspired bar snacks such as Zucchini fritters, lobster rolls, whipped cod roe served with a warm baguette, and anchovies topped with olive oil, lemon and garlic.
