The iconic Caxton Street Festival will be celebrating it’s 21st Birthday this weekend on Sunday 7 June 2015. We recently got to do a tasting tour of a couple of venues on Caxton Street to get a taste of what’s in store for this weekend!
First stop of the night was at Brewski, with my craft beer obsessed boyfriend being completely blown away by this venue and summed it up in his own words saying “these guys are serious about beer!”. We got to try Brewski’s ribs, and yes, they were as delicious as they look!
We then popped across the road and visited Statler and Waldorf, upon walking into this venue we felt like it was never ending and we ventured all the way out the back to a new section of the venue, a beer garden like area complete with ping pong table and a stage which will be used to have live music on weekends! Pictured below are sliders from Statler and Waldorf.
Our third (and personally our favourite!) venue that we visited was the luxurious Gambaro Hotel. The Gambaro Hotel has recently been awarded the best Seafood Restaurant in QLD and the best function centre/caterer in QLD by the Restaurant and Catering Savour Awards. Their sister restaurant Black Hide Steakhouse is also an award winning restaurant, recently being awarded the best Steak Restaurant in QLD and nationally and the Brisbane Restaurant of the Year. Pictured below are the Korean BBQ Beef Ribs and Albondigas Spanish Style Meatballs from Black Hide Steakhouse, the Korean BBQ Beef Ribs were cooked to perfection and just melted in your mouth. Also pictured is the BBQ Herb Marinated Squid which will be served at the Caxton Street Festival with Gambaro fat chips!
Our last stop on our Caxton Street Festival Tasting Tour was at Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall. What a venue! We honestly felt like we had stepped back in time and didn’t want to leave Lefty’s at the end of the night. Stepping into Lefty’s feels like stepping on to a movie set and into a Saloon complete with Johnny Cash style music, craft beer and décor to match! Lefty’s is a must do on Caxton Street!
