What's Golden is Brisbane's newest intimate music and performance space, located right inside The Tivoli.


A new golden era for live music and performance has dawned in Brisbane since our intimate entertainment space What’s Golden has opened, boasting a program of diverse shows from across the globe.

The brand-new 300-person standing capacity performance space with a custom-built stage, sound system and lighting rig sits within The Tivoli’s central foyer, complementing the main auditorium of our iconic and much-loved Fortitude Valley venue. 

In case your brain is wondering, shows will run either in What's Golden OR in The Tivoli's main auditorium - but not at the same time. 

What’s Golden meets Brisbane’s growing appetite for boutique venues and intimate arts experiences, and will serve as a draw-card for the highest-quality local, national and international artists and acts.

The What’s Golden name and brand is derived from deep within the history vaults, drawing inspiration from the good ol' days when our century-old building was home to the famous Adams Bakery

We also pay homage to the glorious, late Ann Garms, who was the founding owner and director of The Tivoli from its inception in the 80's. We stand on the shoulders of giants. 

Whether you love old-school music or contemporary and cutting-edge performing arts; whether this is you first time at The Tivoli or your 101st time; What’s Golden celebrates Brisbane’s passion for live entertainment in an intimate setting.
