South Bank’s Little Big House is set to swing its doors open to the public on Friday 1 December, kicking off summer house parties with a bang.

The brainchild of celebrity chef Matt Moran, the former Collins Place Queenslander has a capacity of 500, bringing a fresh tropical vibe to Grey Street, with their vibrant cocktails, local beers, rotisserie chickens, and laid-back atmosphere.

General Manager Brendan Cox said the atmosphere is like no other location in Brisbane.

“Little Big House is going to feel like your mate’s place who always throws the best house parties – just with next level drinks and an epic roast chook,” he said.

The insta-worthy Cocktails in a Can grace the quirky cocktail menu including the ‘Feels like Apple Pie’ – a fresh lime, apple and fireball concoction – and the ‘Grape Expectations’ with Aperol, vodka, lemon, and grape soda.

There’s a play on ‘little’ and ‘big’ at the new venue, with small and large options available for beer and wine. The beers will be both bottled and on tap, featuring well known brews and exclusive craft stock.

Local Australian wines and a few international labels complete the drinks menu.

When it comes to the ‘pub grub’, the menu is described as simple yet fresh with an emphasis on quality, local Queensland ingredients mirroring the fun nature of the space.

The menu focuses on authentic rotisserie chicken, meats and seafood, served with gravy and chips, salad or vegetables.

Head chef Mathew Fulford has a passion for using fresh home grown produce, evident in his menu picks.

“It was the perfect opportunity to develop something that felt like you’re eating a wholesome meal at home, but a really good one,” said Fulford.

“We’ve even shipped in two rotisseries direct from France to elevate our chicken to what we believe will be Brisbane’s best.”

The Little Big House kiosk, just a stones throw from South Bank train station, will open from 7am daily for over-the-counter and takeaway breakfast, as well as ethically sourced coffee from Single O.

Little Big House will be open 7 days a week from early to late.
