Ahead of the launch David Carson, general manager of Platform, said: “We’re always looking to enhance and evolve what we do here at Platform.

"With Platform 1, we wanted to create a space that goes beyond the typical cafe bar experience.

"We've combined comfort with the industrial charm of the iconic building to offer a new sanctuary in the city that respects the past but is firmly focused on creating new memories for our guests. 

“It’s an exciting new addition to our multifaceted original restaurant, bar and events space and we can’t wait to welcome guests from November 16.”

The Herald:

Platform 1 will operate Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm to late.
