Wheelchair-friendly places to eat and drink during Luminarium

Check out the wonderful cafe, bars and restaurants near Luminarium that are wheelchair accessible.



It’s a bit of a secret, but one of Park Street’s finest Café Bars is right here at St George’s. They have step-free access from Charlotte Street, where there is a lift to all floors of the building so wheelchair users and people with limited mobility can access the Café Bar.


The cafe, which overlooks Luminarium, has step-free access into the open bar area. Beside the bar is an accessible seating area with comfortable booth-style chairs and a clear pathway to the disabled toilets. Enjoy a burger or delicious ice cream, desserts and cakes.
