FAQs – The Prince Consort Hotel

I’VE HEARD THAT THE ELEPHANT IS CLOSING, WHAT’S HAPPENING?

The hotel is reverting to its original heritage name, The Prince Consort, and will also be introducing some new ones. Meet the Prince Consort and Friends, including La La Land, think super luxe supper club and entertainment hub; 400 Rabbits Tequila & Taco Cantina; The Garden Bar, complete with state of the art outdoor stadium screen; The Bowie Rooms, perfect for functions, events and late night antics; The Yorke Suites, a music district of offices and recording studios; and of course, Greaser, which is staying open and will remain a boiling pot for young bands and live music.

The Foundry/Live Music... What's Happening?

For 5 years the Foundry was one of Brisbane’s leading live music venues for local and touring artists. For the moment, The Foundry will be taking a break, with ticket holders contacted. Soon, there will be a new multi-purpose location created in the venue, that will rock (and roll). The Hotel’s love affair with music is as strong as ever, with a Resident Band to be announced, and tunes to be heard throughout the hallways, bars and in every corner, created by established and emerging music makers. Should you wish to get in touch with the foundry directly, you can reach out to bookings@thefoundry.net.au.
