Have been here to see several different types of shows. Pub choir, corporate gig, bands and beer garden acoustic. Sound is fantastic, able to move around and drinks are reasonable.

The Triffid is my favorite place to see live bands in Brisbane. It is also a great place to get some good food including vegetarian options.

Love the Triffid for a lazy Sunday afternoon with good food & wine. Music is always great & small live bands perform each time. Would have loved to stay on for the pub choir that night but was sold out. Definitely next time.
