Check it out at dusk from Kangaroo Point when the lights come on, beautiful.

Great for a wild night out on the town. Get a bite to eat and BYO drinks at Pho Hoang Gia for some well priced Vietnamese food or Bow Thai for something a little more special, depending on your mood. Check out La Ruche for a cocktail and something more glamorous, followed by Our Place for a tea pot, Oh Hello for a boogie and then Capulet for a night cap. The morning after go to Freestyles Tout at the Emporium and have dessert for breakfast. For a Sunday sesh try InCider Trading or Elixir Rooftop Bar.
Start at Jade Buddha for a beautiful lunch on the river, Shadow Lounge underneath for an afternoon beverage, then head to Fridays Riverside and watch the sun go down.

The heart of Brisbane full of shops, cafes and a few bars. Venture out to Elizabeth St Arcade and Adelaide Street for boutique stores. Stop for a coffee at Brew on Albert Street, then go stock up on chocolate at The Dark Chocolatier.

Check out Boundary Street, full of good eats, cigars and coffee. You pretty much can’t go wrong wherever you go, but here are my favourites. The Gun Shop Cafe for breakfast, Dodomi Korean Restaurant for great cheap eats, gluten free options and BYO. Lychee Lounge to keep it classy with a cocktail. The Loft for a Sunday sesh. Finally, make your Monday better by checking out Paladar Fumior Salon for a coffee and cigar.
