“It’s a Persian joint, the best food you’re going to get in Brisbane in my opinion. It’s in one of the suburbs that my mate used to live in and is an Arab spot that’s known by the locals.”More Info
“Zarraffa’s has the best coffee in Brisbane. I thought they had them everywhere but recently found out they’re only up here. It’s like a Starbucks but better.”More Info
“Blackbird is a classy joint: nice bar with a view of the Brisbane bridge and the river. It’s a good spot for people who have never been to Brisbane before. Good spot for a boujee drink.”More Info
“A French restaurant that’s open 'til like 12am, there’s not many in the city open that late. There’s a big Eiffel Tower on the roof. The food is really good; if you can’t afford to go to Paris go there.”More Info
“If you want to go for a nice run or walk hit Kangaroo Point, it’s along the river and you can see the whole city. It’s real nice. There’s a cliff that you can see the whole city from there too, there’s families doing picnics and shit. It’s real wholesome.”More Info
“You walk in and it’s a bar, but if you like games they have all the old arcade games like Pacman, Street Fighter, Racing Games. My favourite game is the basketball one but it’s real cool if you like games. I’ve been trying to crack Stacker for 15 years so if you crack it let me know, that shit’s rigged.”More Info
“If you want a space and a sauna place to relax, there’s a hidden one that not many people know about. There’s six separate spas, a cold spa, a sauna and a steam room with magnesium water.”More Info
“If you want a luxury dinner or want to take someone out, you got to take them out to anything in James St. Hellenika is cool, they have a lot of shared plates and there’s a pool. It’s very moody.”More Info
