The Valley Is Getting An Insane New Bar And Dining Destination

Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE hanging in the valley as much as the next person, but when we got word that an incredible new venue was on the horizon, we never knew what was missing in our lives until now.

Enter, X Cargo: a stunning new multi-level new venue in the heart of the valley, connecting James Street to the rest of Fortitude Valley by way of a kick-ass new bar and dining hub. A true day to night venue, X Cargo is totally unique to Brisbane—and gee, does she look gorgeous!

Made out of shipping containers, X Cargo will be the first of its kind in Brisbane on such a luxe scale; we’re talking multiple outdoor bar and dining areas, a scattering of rooftop terraces—SO GOOD—a tropical garden, there’s even going to be an outdoor cinema (!), and it will we open morning to night, 7 days a week. We’re dizzy!

To top it off, X Cargo will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with speciality coffee and quick bites in the morning, and then firing up their jewel in the crown, Eats Alley, in the afternoons and evenings. Eats Alley will feature multiple food outlets serving up some of the state’s finest produce, and will feature ever-rotating Brisbane food trucks.

Given that we see more than 300 days of sunshine a year in Brisbane, X Cargo has been specially designed to suit our sub-tropical needs with a gorgeous aesthetic and light, airy spaces perfect for taking drinks from day to night (we’re already picturing cocktails in hand on the rooftop terraces—dreamy), and we cannot wait for it to open!

Flagged for an early spring opening, we’ll keep you up to date with XCargo’s official launch date.
