Breaking: Newstead Is Getting A Fabulous New Foodie Hub?

Geez, Brisbane. Will you chill? I mean, we do love your ‘cant stop, won’t stop’ attitude, but we need a second to get our bearings—there’s so much newness.

A girl can’t keep up…

Alright Brissy, the next suburb to have well and truly on your foodie radar is Newstead. Yes, yes, it’s only a skip and a stroll from vibrant Fortitude Valley, but other than the ever-expanding Gasworks and a handful of long-standing restaurants, there’s not much to this quiet mini ‘burb.

So, we’re going off like a frog in a sock about the new proposal for the Wallace Bishop HQ site on Commercial Road (stay with us now!). Other than getting a mammoth—and might we say, very beautiful façade makeover—the site is expanding to accommodate five (FIVE) brand new vendors; three of them being reserved for bars and restaurants! That’s more like it, Newstead!

Right now, the deets on this project are pretty sparse (tbc on who will take up these sought-after spots right now), but it’s yet another notch on the post for Brisbane’s bar scene.

We will of course keep you posted on all the updates as they come in. Meanwhile we’ll start mentally preparing for another new bar hang. Excited much?
