Functions

The Junk Bar is perfect for parties and functions.

Currently we are taking function bookings for all nights and depending on the number of people you can have the private lounge or enjoy the whole bar and it’s two rooms!

The Junk Bar has its own self-contained bar and vinyl sound system and if you hire Junk,  you’ll hire one of the best venues in Brisbane with the records spinning and the drinks flowing.
All you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself, and soak up the adoration and admiration of your guests.

This is where you want your next party or function.

And we’ve got options, baby:
• If you want you can run a tab for an amount of your choosing, or if it’s easier just have everyone buy their own drinks – we want to make it easy for you.
• We can also help you customise your drinks tab. We’ll be happy to send you costings on how much a white, red, champagne, premium beer and basics tab is for your group.
• Special event and you want cocktails on offer all night? We can do that too.
• Cocktails on arrival and then basics after that? Whatever you need we can make it happen.

The music for your party will be drawn from our awesome collection of vinyl – this is what our bar is all about. We are happy to take record requests in advance and curate a vinyl playlist for you. Let us know if there is a genre you love (70’s/soul/rockabilly etc, – our vinyl library is amazing).
If you hire the entire bar you can also create your own playlist and play it off your own device – just let us know this in advance.
The function space does not include the use of the stage or the PA for live music.

The Junk Bar is quirky and unique with a vibe that’ll ensure a great night; there’s nothing quite like it in Brisbane. Having a function at The Junk Bar is all about escapism, warm attitudes and fabulous drinks. We’d love to look after you.
For more information just go to the contacts page and email Chris and he will be happy to help with any questions you have.
Or your welcome to call Chris directly on 0468353977 or Karen 0410460804

Hi Mia,
I just wanted to thank you, Andy and Sam so much for taking such good care of me, my family and friends on Saturday night.
For someone who was very reluctant to have their first ever birthday party I couldn’t have asked for a better night! 
By the way, that Lemon and Lavender cocktail is an absolute winner 👍
Hannah xoxo (2019) 

“Hi Mia,

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.

Upcoming Shows at the Skukum Lounge

Sunday 22nd November

Essential Workers of Comedy

Artist photo

The Butcher (Anthony Long), The Busker (Stephen Denham), The Teacher (Colette Andersen) & The Anchorman (Liam Daley) feature in the Essential Workers of Comedy

Anthony Long is a local supermarket Butcher whose comedy recounting his daily work life and ongoing beef with society is as sharp as the blade he uses everyday.

Stephen Denham’s burgeoning videography career was finally going well enough to drown out the cries of “Film-school Reject!” that kept him awake at night. But, with the global pandemic putting him back at square one, Stephen has had to fall back on his other monetizable skill as a busker singing dumb songs.

Colette Andersen is a teacher as well as a mother self described as bitter with a twist. Her various stories from life as an educator and mother will have you laughing and learning at the same time.

Liam Daley is an anchorman (on YouTube) who brings his own special blend of pointing out the obvious and looking at things a little differently with his unique clean but edgy observational style humour.
