The George Bar & Bistro will open early next month, with GG espresso already open for business.
The Gregans have taken out a five year lease on the mezzanine level café and the ground floor bistro in the One One One Eagle Street office building in Brisbane CBD.

GG espresso opened earlier this week, serving Allpress Coffee to hundreds of returning workers.
The bistro will open from early to late Monday to Friday, with the aim to become a ‘local’ for breakfast, lunch and dinners and a place for shared plates and wines in the afternoon, meetings and more. Their priority is to deliver their bistro style menu and wine list at affordable prices.
Owner Erica Gregan said, “Brisbane is a city that is very dear to our hearts. We have an incredible base of friends here and have been waiting for the right space and opportunity to become available – One One One Eagle is definitely the right fit for us. We have a huge connection to Brisbane through our network of friends and business colleagues, it is also the city that’s home to George’s favourite ground in Suncorp Stadium.
The Gregans take over the two spaces previously tenanted by Brisbane restaurateur Philip Johnson. His operation closed toward the end of last year.
