About the function space

The heritage listed Lord Alfred is one of the truly iconic pubs of the late 19th Century, and is full of character and charm.

Situated opposite the Petrie Terrace Police Barracks on the north-eastern end of the Caxton Street entertainment precinct, LA has public transport within walking distance and Suncorp Stadium just down the road. It is indeed a great place to have a party.

The Basement Bar has its own glowing, well stocked and staffed bar, and looks onto all the on-street action of the area while being tucked into a cavernous enclave. It is rustic and charming with exposed brick and timber as a backdrop for your party.

The food is made fresh onsite and the team takes pride in tailoring the ideal function to suit everyone's needs.
