Baxter Inn’s Jason Scott teams up with Jamie Webb in new Brisbane bar



One half of the Swillhouse Group, Jason Scott (Shady Pines Saloon et al) is partnering with Jamie Webb (Cabiria, Peasant) in a new saloon-style music hall in Brisbane. “It’s called Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall,” said Webb. “We are a country music hall with free music and a democratic door policy.”

“We’re on Caxton street in a heritage listed building started by the Labor party a long time ago,” said Webb. The site previously housed The Velvet Cigar — a gentleman’s club and rumoured illegal brothel, a link that the new bar will draw upon. “It’s themed like Deadwood meets Carnivale in a Louisiana brothel.”

They expect the bar to be open from mid to late May.
