Doo-Bop Jazz Bar

Doo-Bop Jazz Bar

Great live music: From the Jazz Age to Cool Jazz and everything in between. The key experience we aim to give you at Doo-Bop is the true feeling of Australian jazz. As the late great Tony Ashby said, “You can’t explain it but when you hear it, you say ‘that’s it!’”

Formerly the Youngs Building, 101 Edward Street is now home to the Doo-Bop Jazz Bar – Brisbane’s newest jazz venue.

Constructed in 1910, the warehouse precinct was originally developed by Horace Edwin Broughton Young and Charles Ernest Young then later subdivided in 1923. As a Federation-era warehouse, the building features many early 20th century characteristics such as un-rendered brickwork, large wooden beams and fine detailing.

Doo-Bop Jazz Bar – Great jazz, casual dining, good wine, delicious cocktails – have we missed anything?

Our basement level showcases a large stage with a 1955 refurbished Steinway grand piano from New York and plenty of seating to enjoy everything Brisbane jazz has to offer. Shows include contemporary jazz, bebop, jazz fusion, swing, and Brisbane’s own style of trad jazz – a subgenre of jazz that pays homage to the original Dixieland.

Doors open 6pm until 3am Mondays to Saturdays and 12pm to 3am on Swinging Sundays! Ticket purchases are essential to enjoy Doo-Bop’s jazz greats downstairs.

Doo-Bop Brasserie and Piano Bar – Set in the classic Jazz Age Art Deco design, Doo-Bop’s upper-ground level piano bar restaurant is the perfect atmosphere for low-key dining. Showcasing a classic Yamaha C7 grand piano, enjoy the live entertainment while taking in our scrumptious menu.

The brasserie at ground level is open for coffee and breakfast from 6am to 11am and then transforms into the Doo-Bop piano bar, serving lunch and dinner until late.

Doo-Bop is the name of the last studio album recorded by (arguably) the greatest jazz musician of all time, American trumpeter Miles Davis. Released posthumously in 1992 as a collaboration with hip-hop producer Easy Mo Bee, Doo-Bop was awarded a Grammy and represents the influence that jazz has had on all forms of popular music.
