Bookings/Eats

We do take bookings- and this is a good idea on the weekends as we usually fill up to our maximum capacity.

JUNK PARTIES-  As of January 2014 we will be taking group bookings for 50 or under any night of the week now including Friday and Saturday nights in our brand new room The Skukum Lounge. Just email Mia on the contacts page for any enquiries.

Junk is the perfect venue for celebrations of any kind. We have a function food menu consisting of delicious platters from Cheese Platters to Thai and China Platters, Sushi Party Trays and even good old fashioned Pizza to complement our delicious 70’s inspired cocktails. Feel like you are hosting your own 70’s house party complete with table service so you and your friends can just sit back in your own section of the bar and let the waitresses look after you.

Your own couches, dim lamps, deer heads, amazing vinyl spinning all night long-

Just email Mia if you are interested in perusing the Function food menu.

HAVE YOU MADE DINNER PLANS? NO NEED! WE HAVE IT SORTED!

Finding Us

It’s half the fun.

Junk is hidden on Ashgrove Ave, at the corner of 215 Waterworks Road, Ashgrove.
No neon, no flashing lights- just look for the sliding door with the velvet curtains.

If you find somewhere and you don’t like it- it’s probably not the right place.

There is a constant stream of cabs and buses out the front, which makes getting to and from us easy.

NEW CITY GLIDER MAROON BUS SERVICE-

You can now travel from Coorparoo, Wooloongabba, Stones Corner, The City and Paddington straight to the heart of Ashgrove on the Maroon City Glider.

It will drop you off at stop 44 on Stewart Road which is just a hop, skip and a jump away from us- and travels every 10 min in peak hour and every 15 minutes in off peak.

This service also operates till 12.25 am on Friday and Saturday nights so it’s never been so easy to get to and from Junk on public transport. This service stops in the city at The Cultural Centre, Ann St and Roma St stations. Call 131230 for more information.

If catching public transport, catch the 379, 380 or 381 from the city to St Finbar’s stop no 15/16 Ashgrove. (This is just across the road almost from us).

 

There are cabs ever ready out the front to take you home.
