‘Tis the season to explore all the shiny new places that Brisbane has to offer! With summer in full swing, you’ll be glad to know that there’s plenty of places to get ice cream, milkshakes, cocktails and guilt-free desserts to help you keep your cool. If it’s a proper meal you’re after, well we have your burger needs covered…
Calories don’t count in December, right?
#10 Get on the Pineapple Superfood Express
If you’re working towards getting that summer bod, join the health-train and indulge in some cocowhip or acai bowls at the Pineapple Superfood Express Box. The little sister of Pineapple Express is on James Street and is open til late to suit your all-clean-eating needs.
#9 Lickety Split into Lick! Ice-cream
I scream, you scream, we all head to Lick! Ice Cream in Graceville for our summer staple! If the traditional ice cream/cone combination doesn’t do it for you, try their doffles (a doughnut waffle hybrid), or attempt to be healthy with a banana split.
#8 New School Cocktails at Barbara
Sick of the oldschool cocktails that you drank to death over the winter? Bring in the new season with new cocktails in the new bar, Barbara, where no one’s a stranger and everyone’s welcome.
#7 Floss Like A Boss At Secret Trees Coffee
Go to the place where your childhood and adulthood collides, and enjoy coffee accompanied by huge fluffy cloud of fairyfloss at Secret Trees Coffee nestled in the localised backstreets of Robertson.
#6 All The Homewares at Living Edge
Once you’ve finished your acai bowls, wonder up James street and check out Living Edge’s collection of authentic and iconic designs for the home, office and everything in between, with items from leading luxury furniture brands from all over the world.
#5 Row Faster George! Launches
Beach towels are another summer essential, and the guys behind Row Faster George! have you covered! The inaugural collection of three limited edition 100% luxury cotton beach towels is the result of a collaboration between contemporary Brisbane artists Stephen Mok, Michael Phillips and Adam Lester.
#4 Alquimia Tequila Bar Is Here
A wise man once said, “Tequila is a man’s best friend…” Maybe that’s not how it goes, but it sounds good enough! And there’s no excuse to not party with tequila this silly season with Alquimia Tequila Bar now open on Ann Street.
#3 Getta Pie In Your Milkshake at Getta Burger
Yes, a pie. In your milkshake. Apple pie, peanut butter pie, cherry pie, any pie. Getta Burger has just opened in West End, and you can order a megashake unlike any other in Brisbane, that has a whole slice of pie combined with all your milkshake staples. Yes please!
#2 Eat, Drink + Drive-In To Eat Street's Outdoor Cinema
Just when we thought that the Eat Street Markets couldn’t get any better, it did! Now we can indulge in all the food that Eat Street has to offer, and then relax in the comfort of our own cars or in the Moon chairs provided, and enjoy some quality film whilst enjoying the luxury of purchasing snacks, ice-creams and drinks from the roving mobile Segway crew (awesome?!) from the American Diner.
#1 Ze Pickle Burgers Are Here!
There’s a new burger joint in town, and this one takes burgers to a whole new level.
