WHY BOOK RIC’S?

Ric’s Bar is a historical hotspot for Brisbane’s burgeoning music and art scenes. Set up in the early ’90s by Ric Frearson, a local artist, it was first used as an art exhibit space, and was soon to include regular band residencies by some of Brisbane’s most infamous music alumni. National and international performers to note since include The Microphones, The John Steel Singers, Velociraptor, DZ Deathrays, Yves Klein Blue, I Heart Hiroshima, The Mint Chicks, The Presets, The Grates, Straight Arrows, Violent Soho, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cloud Control, The Brunettes, and many more.

Ric’s features three very distinctive spaces: Upstairs, Downstairs (Ric’s main band room + bar), and Ric’s Backyard. Whether you’re looking to book a unique private function with a view, a gathering in our backyard with a private bar, or if you’re a band looking to play a part in Ric’s rich unfolding history – we have you sorted.
