An exciting addition to Brisbane’s restaurant scene, Mews is heating up the Howard Smith Wharves precinct with a playful culinary experience, allowing guests to dine amongst a living street art gallery, with Brisbane creatives leaving their mark on the venue. Located inside Crystalbrook Vincent, Mews heroes hyper-local, sustainable produce through a unique, laneway-inspired menu.
A truly experiential dining experience, the Crystalbrook Vincent team have engaged local street artists such as Mr.Sor2, JORDACHE and James Ellis to fit-out the space with custom pieces. Diners will be transported to the streets of New York City as they soak up all the energy of the vibrant precinct.
The design and concept of Mews offers a seamless addition to the Crystalbrook Vincent experience. Brave, bold and bursting with energy, Crystalbrook Vincent is locally integrated with an environmentally conscious #ResponsibleLuxury philosophy. The five-star hotel embraces a lively extravaganza of dynamic designs and sustainable amenities, luxury accommodation, over 500 prints by acclaimed Australian artist Vincent Fantauzzo, radical entertainment, events and dining experiences – all with a modern sophistication about it, in the vibrant Howard Smith Wharves in Brisbane’s city centre.
Brandishing distinctly Brisbanesque cuisine, Mews embraces communal dining with everchanging menus working with seasonality and availability. Current highlights include:
- Macquarie wagyu intercostal croquettes with smoked bonito and ribery, grains and seeds.
- Fried Moreton Bay bug with spicy cornbread and myrtle, Everton Park honey jus, succulent pickle, and citrus paint.
- Roasted karbullah lamb from local producers Vicky and Mark in Goondiwindi, with seasonal Mapleton farm vegetables, native mint salt, and volute
Executive Chef Andrew McCrea works in partnership with local artisans, farmers and fisherman to secure the finest quality produce, with 80% of produce sourced from within three hours of the venue. Aligning with other Crystalbrook Collection restaurants, Mews also features ‘Climate Calories,’ whereby diners can see the environmental impact of their dish through a creative labelling system.
Behind the bar, guests are spoilt for choice with an extensive wine list showcasing the incredible breadth of Australia’s wine varietals, from up-and-coming producers, as well as some of the country’s most iconic drops. These include nearby producers such as Witches Falls and De Beaurepaire Wines.

These include the ‘Salute The King’ featuring Brookies Mac, Brookies dry gin, mint, and sweet+ sour.
