The year might be getting on, but Brisbane is still seeing plenty of new restaurants, cafes and bars actually open of late. Seems every week we're ranting and raving about the next newbie, bringing its own proposed offering/theming/novelty viral food item to this fine city of ours. Here's a useful little list for you to get excited about, in case you're despondent over having eaten at Every Brisbane Venue Ever. Take heart, there's plenty more where that came from.
The newbies we're counting the days for.
$5 million has been committed to develop a business case for the proposed complex.
By 2022, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre will be home to five theatres, including a new 1500-to-1700 capacity venue.
It'll sit atop a podium covered in street art, with the development also featuring a five-storey atrium.
The New Farm precinct will soon be home to a seven-storey hotel, a Greek restaurant, 12 retail shops and five yet-to-be announced bars and eateries.
