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!
