Hospitality entrepreneur Damian Griffiths is the man behind many a Brisbane venue: Alfred & Constance, Kwan Brothers, Limes Hotel, Les Bubbles, Mister Fitz, and Doughnut Time, to name few.

Alfredo’s Pizzeria closed last month to make way for Griffiths latest project, Alf’s Place, a pop-up bar concept that will support young chefs and bartenders. The new venue will launch 14 September and will transform each week to house a new dining concept. Booking will not be available; the restaurant take walk in only.

The first theme Alf’s Place will showcase will be Sticky Fingers Smokehouse, being led by Joshua Lawson (BVLD) who has won more than 50 national barbecue championships.

Lawson will be serving up real-wood smoked meats over ironbark, including pork spare ribs, grain fed beef brisket, and smoked sausages. Each plate will be served with homemade seasoning and sauces, plus all the trimmings: mac and cheese, coleslaw, and potato salad.

Following Lawson will be ex-Masterchef contestant Danielle Dixon, who will will turn Alf’s into Brisbane’s first Midnight Dining Club. As it’s name suggests, it is a late night dining experience. 

Apart from her stint on Channel Ten’s Masterchef, Dixon has worked in some of the top kitchens in the country, including Quay and Rockpool. Midnight Dining Club will be looking after those late diners whoare in search for more than just the usual fare. The concept will serve up some dishes that change daily was well as a ‘pantry’ list featuring ingredients that you can select from and ask the chefs to create one of your favourite late night cravings.

More events will be announced as the venue continues to host an array of chefs and their unique dining  concepts. Don’t like the food? Come back next month to try out a ‘new’ restaurant.
