Brisbane Powerhouse opened as an arts centre in 2000 after its 43-year reign as a power station. Bold industrial structures laced with European flair, raw textures, and preserved graffiti walls combine to create the perfect artistic space and have earned the building a heritage listing.
The recently refurbished Brisbane Powerhouse precinct ensures a holistic arts and dining experience, with Bar Alto overlooking the Brisbane River, a reconfigured Turbine Platform to constitute a concert stage, and an additional rooftop terrace.

This took him to the Cayman Islands where he found himself under the tutelage of Chef Stephen Wagner and veteran restaurateur Vico Testori at Ristorante Pappagallo.
Here Sajith had the opportunity to work alongside some of Venice’s finest chefs from the famed Cipriani Hotel who would come to the Caymans in the off season. This experience built on Sajith’s love, knowledge and technique for regional Italian cuisine and would form the basis of his food philosophy.
Sajith worked under Pablo Tordesillas during Bar Alto’s opening and the following three years. This time would teach Sajith the art of combining traditional Italian cooking philosophies with Pablo’s modern techniques, fastidious attention to detail and uncompromising attitude.
In 2009 he took on the position of Head Chef at Bar Alto.
