  Band playing at the Powerhouse
by Colzy

The Powerhouse is such a great chill out venue. Situated on the river in New Farm, at the bottom of New Farm Park, it takes its name from the old powerhouse situated here. The design of the building incorporates many of the features from the original building which gives it a kind of unique and interesting look.

There are restaurants here as well as a few different bars to hang out in. They quite often have free live music and comedy acts which is fun. There are often travelling exhibits featured here as well which can be quite interesting.

There are also awesome views of the river as well as being really close to the Valley with lots of other cool night spots.
