Brisbane’s Fringe Bar reborn as The Osbourne Hotel

The Fringe Bar in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley has been a local landmark for the past 15 years.  Its now been reborn as The Osbourne Hotel, reverting to its original name when the hotel was opened way back in 1864.

The newly-renovated Hotel has a 400-seat bistro and beer garden that features Quatro Design hemispherical bowls made in GRC concrete hanging from the glass-ceiling. Plants drape over the rims of the the bowls as part of the tropical, natural light-filled ambiance.

The charcoal-coloured GRC bowls were custom-made by Quatro Design.  They are attached to the ceiling beams by means of aluminium centre posts that have been powder-coated to a matching colour.
