NEWS: The brand new Business Lounge at the domestic terminal in Brisbane, along with the fast track entry, has been opened. It is a delight with uprated dining options, and interior design inspired by Queensland.

The new Qantas Domestic Business Class lounge at Brisbane is a great new space, with a pizza and wine bar, craft beer, and a god relaxing area. It really is one of the best domestic lounges in Australia.

To find the lounge, go through the exclusive Lounge Entry channel for Business and Gold / Platinum Frequent Flyers. This has a dedicated check-in area, bag drop, security screening and escalator with direct access to the new Lounge Precinct.

The Brisbane Qantas Lounge Precinct itself is a bit of an oddity, with a long curved space, with vast amounts of wood panelling. There is also a small hut serving coffee - however it can be quicker to head into the main lounge, which is on your left through the doors marked Business.

Effectively the Brisbane Qantas Domestic Business Class lounge is a sub-lounge within the main Qantasclub lounge, for Business Class and top tier Frequent Flyers.

The Brisbane Qantas Domestic Business Class lounge is long, thin, and shaped like a big curved L, with a wide area and main bar overlooking the tarmac, before it narrows to a thin point overlooking the carpark, with the small coffee bar.

As you walk in, you are faced with the 'Library' with a few books and magazine. Then, on the left is the small coffee bar, while to your right the space gracefully curves around to form the main bar, at the end of which is the 'Quench' drinking area, and then the pizza and Mexican station.

A huge step up from the previous lounge with a luxurious design "inspired by the beauty of Queensland's landscape." the Brisbane Domestic Business Lounge is 30 percent bigger than the previous facility and boasts a number of dining features including a cantina serving fresh Mexican dishes, unique to the Brisbane Business Lounge.

Offering seating for more than 350 people, Woods Bagot has designed a space using local materials and a colour palette inspired by Moreton Bay at twilight. Planting and natural light has been maximised to reflect the bright outdoor Queensland lifestyle in the L shaped lounge which faces out towards the runways.

During the early morning, there is a barista Vittoria coffee and a hydration station - Quench - a concept first introduced in the Brisbane International Lounge, focusing on hydration before flying by serving non-alcoholic beverages including a Rockpool signature tisane blend and infused water.

Qantas has worked with artist Jenna Lee of Brisbane-based Indigenous design agency Gilimbaa who has created a contemporary light and glass artwork called Rhythm of Our Stories.

The artwork is installed in the new communal lounge precinct and represents the teaching, learning and sharing of culture between generations. The light display was created by capturing a dance performance by the Ruska family with bloodlines descending from the Yuggera, Quandamooka and Yugambeh people of South East Queensland.

The colours of the artwork are inspired by the fire lit at the beginning of the performance and the pattern on the glass represents the dancers' strong connection to the land.

The Brisbane Qantas Domestic Business Class lounge is a lovely area to start your flight, and in the afternoon is a haven of calm. This is totally different to early mornings, when it is all bustle and a bit hectic.

Food

It is the dining options which set the lounge apart from it's Qantasclub cousin next door.

Celebrity chef Neil Perry has designed seasonal menus and they really work. They really do. Alas, from about 6.30pm in the evening, just when you want dinner, all the food disappears.

The Brisbane Qantas Domestic Business Class lounge has introduced a new dining feature, The Cantina, serving freshly made Mexican dishes including empanadas, soft corn tacos, roast sweetcorn and quesadillas.

And don't forget the new pizza bar. It's really good.
