A Day of Luxury on James Street

Whether you’re a born-and-bred local, or you’re a visitor to Brisbane, James Street is a must-stop hub of the river city, and fast becoming one of its most popular precincts.

From boutique shopping to fine dining and plenty of indulgence in between, the best bit is you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy its offerings.

Merlo Coffee

Merlo Coffee on the corner of James and McLachlan Street holds luxury cupping courses… think of it as wine tasting but with coffee.

The course takes a minimum of four people on the coffee journey from bean to cup, with some interesting tidbits in between. You’ll never look at coffee the same way again!

Our must-try recommendation? The famous Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee with hints of wood, chocolate and stone fruit!

Palace Platinum at Palace Cinemas

Taking things up a notch, or several, this new movie experience sure puts popcorn and soft drink to shame… although of course, that’s still on offer if you’re a sentimental soul.

With Spanish-crafted leather recliners, a locally curated menu as well as first-class drinks list… you’ll find it hard to leave!

Choose from fare like Crispy Pork Bao, Peking Duck and Shallot Pancakes, Smoked Salmon Rice Paper Rolls and gourmet burgers… all washed down with a glass of first-class champagne.

Arc + Family

Homeware haven Arc + Family is owned and run by husband-and-wife duo Ben and Ash Keily. According to Ash, they’ve always had creative flairs and they hand paint each and every pot on sale. 

El Rosa

Just next door, serving up a bevvy of beautiful bevvies, El Rosa will have you in a social media frenzy as every corner boasts an imaginative and colourful stage.

Whether you want to hire the space for your next event, or choose from delicious shakes like the Jador Dior or Shake and Bake, one thing we promise is your Instagram will have plenty of colour!
