Members’ Dining Room – Breathing new life into a timeless favourite

July 22, 2022

A rich part of the Club's history is being refreshed and new life is being breathed into one of the most cherished and iconic heritage spaces at Tattersall's - the Members' Dining Room.

With the opening of The Conservatory, and its contemporary flair, Members' dining offer choices have diversified. Now, the Club has embarked upon elevating its signature heritage dining space.

In its first phase, the newly-reopened space features fresh carpet, uplifting the room’s ambience.

Members can also enjoy a freshly polished menu and experience that heightens the room’s unique old world charm and celebrates the Club's rich history – and there’s more still to come.

Standing in the heart of the city for almost 100 years, the Art Deco Members’ Dining Room is an inimitable piece of Brisbane’s history and one of the most celebrated and exclusive dining experiences in Queensland.

With ten-metre high ceilings and walls adorned in Queensland marble, each aspect of Members’ dining experience has been carefully considered to honour the prestige and grandeur of the surrounds.

The room also gives a nod to the Club’s horse racing legacy with its showcase of statues and trophies.

From experiencing acclaimed culinary craftsmanship, to the exceptional expertise and attention to detail from your hosts, the Members’ Dining Room continues to appreciate as a rare jewel and one of Brisbane’s finest dining experiences.

Designed by the same architects behind Brisbane’s beloved City Hall, architects Hall and Prentice, Tattersall’s Member’s Dining Room is of a rare calibre of craftsmanship in Brisbane.

Built in 1939, the space is ‘quintessentially Tattersall’s’ and one of the most cherished aspects of the Club amongst long-standing and new Members alike.

The room features sprawling windows overlooking Queen Street Mall, diffusing natural light that reflects off the Art Deco style mirror-lined walls.

Also featured are four large oil paintings featuring local artists and subjects, commissioned from Queensland artists William Bustard, Charles H. Lancaster, Mel Haysom and P. Stanhope Hobday.

Measuring 10.5 feet high by six feet wide, the murals are set within the marble and between wall mirrors, each depicting Queensland industry, respectively honouring miners, timber-getters, agriculturalists and pastoralists.

In this beautiful space, Tattersall’s hopes its Members continue to enjoy the experience, cherish special moments with loved ones, and create a lifetime of unforgettable memories.
