Successful restaurateur and bar owner, Nick Pinn opened Malt Dining in June 2011 to rave reviews.
Prior to Malt, Nick opened and operated Glass Bar in Fortitude Valley and Aquitaine Brasserie at River Quay, Southbank.
With two successful restaurants boasting menus of tantalising flavours, it’s surprising to discover it was the liquor side of things that originally drew Nick Pinn to the hospitality industry. While studying hospitality management, Nick initially thought he’d go down the beverage route, opening his own bar or club. But food lured him in, resulting in the opening of Malt and Aquitaine.
Having worked in hospitality on and off for 20 years now, Nick is well-versed in what makes a dining experience a memorable one. The success of Malt Dining and the many diners who return are testament to that.
Market Street is home to the iconic Wenley House, historically famous as Queensland’s first municipal marketplace, built in 1863.
It is within this building that Malt Dining is situated. Its vintage white exterior and robust brickwork characterise its working-class beginnings and well-loved nature.
We have restored Wenley House’s grand architectural features to their origins and have integrated layers of contemporary design to visually enhance the space.
