Patina at Alumni Court

Patina at Alumni Court is a contemporary restaurant seating up to 90 people across indoor and outdoor dining areas, while also providing a private dining room and premium catering services perfect for meetings, workshops and events.

A brand new restaurant has been constructed in Alumni Court, the dining space also incorporates heritage-listed former Radon Laboratory, while accented with flairs inspired by its inner-city sister venue. Those familiar with Customs House’s iconic copper dome may notice Patina’s brass and copper-coloured finishes and luxe interiors that flourish in the open-air atmosphere created by the surrounding Alumni Gardens.

Alumni Court was originally built in 1970 with the help of The Alumni Friends of The University of Queensland Inc, and the design of the new development takes this history into account, incorporating the existing structure of the heritage-listed Former Radon Laboratory as part of the overall dining space.

Open from Tuesday 15th February for Coffee and Takeaway Breakfast.

Restaurant lunch and dinner bookings can be made for dates from Monday 21st February.

At the helm of the UQ outpost is Patina’s Executive Chef, John Offenhauser (previously Chef de Cuisine and Marco Polo at the Treasury Hotel) who will oversee both venues, and Chef Nick Murtas (previously Palazzo Versace and Emporium Hotels) who is set to head up the kitchen.
