Stock Exchange Hotel Re-Opens Under New Management

Stock Exchange Hotel, one of Brisbane’s iconic establishments, has been acquired by a new operator following a brief closure in late 2020.

Now owned by rawGROUP, the hospitality company behind establishments like Madame Wu, Casa Cibo, Beach House Bar & Grill, Chu The Phat, and The Duporth Tavern, the revatalised Stock Exchange Hotel will continue to be a favoured hangout for many locals after its soft re-opening on 21 April 2021. 

The hospitality group has made significant changes to the restaurant and bar with a few redecorations to make the venue more female-friendly. 

The bar and the game room on the ground floor have been repainted with light and bright colours to appeal to all-inclusive guests. Upstairs, the private function room has been redecorated as well to create more space for 125 guests whilst the rooftop area now looks like a Mediterranean watering hole.

Executive chef Shaun Hunt runs the kitchen that will focus on Mexican and Asian dishes. The bar, on the other hand, will serve trendy craft labels and heaps of cocktail drinks. 

Hip-hop nights at The Stockie will be revived on Sunday nights, which used to be very popular with the Gen Z crowd but Adrian Rosato of rawGROUP believes that their concept will attract a wider market. They plan on introducing more live music and DJs in the coming weeks. 

In November 2020, Riversdale Group confirmed that it will not renew its lease to the Stock Exchange Hotel after seven years of operation. The property, constructed in 1863, has been one of the oldest surviving hotels in the city and it’s currently owned by the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane.
