The Tivoli

Brisbane's best loved music venue.

The Tivoli


The Tiv lives on as a gift to the music-loving people of Brisbane. At 102-years-old, The Tivoli continues to create history with a decadent program of local and international work.

The Tivoli Theatre was originally built as the Adams Bakery in 1917. It was later used by the State Library to store rare books, but with Expo ’88 reverberating in the city, a new owner, Ann Gams transformed it into The Tivoli Restaurant and Theatre - modeled on the Paradis Latin in Paris (1803) one of the France’s most famous cabaret theatres. In 2016, the venue was purchased by brothers Steve and Dave Sleswick after being earmarked for development. For further information about the amenities, location and parking, please visit The Tivoli website.
