Dawn: New Mediterranean Bar Opens in Spencer Lane

Spencer Lane’s latest bar and restaurant, Dawn, offers Brisbane a new venue for people to enjoy Mediterranean-inspired meals with an expansive cocktail menu.

Dawn, which recently opened in late March 2021, sports a design inspired by the French Riviera, featuring grey marble furniture, plush booths, and a bar counter. The restaurant currently occupies the former site of the now-closed Spencer Lane restaurant, The Euro Garden.

Their menu draws culinary inspiration from countries like Spain, Italy, France and Greece, consisting of snacks and share plates like their cheese and charcuterie boards, their jamón ibérico with honey fermented garlic and bread, or their saltbush and mountain pepper fried calamari served with chili mayo and lemon.

The venue has more to offer than just food, however. Featuring a curated collection of alcoholic concoctions from their award-winning mixologist Marco Nunes, Dawn offers their customers a variety of drinks to complement their meals. Rare spirits, aperitif and curious cocktails are all present in the bar’s drink menu.
