The winds of change..
Brisbane is like a fine bottle of wine; over time the quality improves, and each sip is greatly appreciated. Our city is continually evolving and maturing, producing breathtaking venues that never cease to amaze us. If it's not an entirely new concept, it's a renovation or re-brand. Let's just say, if Bris were a TV series it would either be Packed to the Rafters or Keeping Up With The Kardashians - wouldn't you agree? No month is the same in this town and we wouldn't have it any other way!
New menu, who dis?
Out with the old and in with the new (well, sort of). Staying on top of seasonal foodie trends and produce is something most Brisbane eateries take pride in #lucky. Menus are continually being updated and tweaked to suit, not only our wants and needs, but also, what's current, fresh and locally sourced. We've had the privilege of taste-testing a number of new breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink menus over the past few weeks, and we think you should try them too. Be quick though, time fly's when you're having fun and before you know it, it'll be spring and the menus will be different again!

Lets get feast-ive
Let's be honest, Christmas can be damn stressful. Somehow we go from September to December in a matter of minutes and the next thing we know, we're out until 11 pm on Christmas Eve picking up last minute gifts. The thoughts 'What the hell am I buying right now?' run through our heads the entire time, and we either end up spending $4000 on weird, useless ornaments for everyone or we admit defeat and walk out with nothing but chocolate-filled stockings and a not-so-jolly attitude. Well sorry to say, we can't help you in the present buying department but we can help you find the perfect Christmas party venue. Give your colleagues the gift that keeps on giving this year (yes, we mean flowing booze and drool-worthy food) and throw them a bangin' Chrissy soiree they wont forget. We've done the research and listed a few of Brisbane's hottest venues to get festive in. Let the feasting begin..
