Introducing the Yorke Suites

Welcome to the Yorke Suites, a music and arts hub inspired by Mr. Ritchie Yorke, cultivating connection between Brisbane’s makers and shakers. We are home to musicians, local businesses, not-for-profits and most of all, music lovers. It’s a community of creatives that Ritchie would be proud to call his mates.

The space is named in honour of Mr. Ritchie Yorke, the legendary Brisbane music journalist, author, broadcaster, music critic, band manager and peace activist. A prominent figure in the Australian music industry, Ritchie made his mark nurturing the nations rise to music maturity during his stint as music editor for the Courier Mail. Head upstairs and view some of the prized archival collection throughout the Yorke Suites, accompanied by recording and photography studios, rehearsal spaces and businesses.
