As Easy Mo Bee put it:
A little taste of be-bop sound with the backdrop of doo-wop and this is why we call it the doo-bop.
Got it? Good!
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!’”
Dining at Doo-Bop
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 6.30pm until 3am every day and 1pm to 4.30pm 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 7am to 11am and then transforms into the Doo-Bop piano bar, serving lunch and dinner until late.
History of 101 Edward Street
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 unrendered brickwork, large wooden beams and fine detailing.
