Wongabel Street, Kenmore

Kenmore is a leafy family suburb that sits roughly 10 kilometres south-west of Brisbane’s CBD.

Cal Rein offers over 30 years of local, national and international experience at his stylish barbershop: Cool Man Hair. He has cut hair in LA for the likes of Matthew Perry and Frank Stallone.

Wongabel street in the heart of the suburb is host to three delightful restaurants showcasing a range of international cuisine. Sichuan Bang Bang offering specialty Chinese, recently opened Stavros The Greek and Pizzeria Violetta serving up authentic pizzas from Naples. The area is growing and diversifying with what is on offer for an evening’s dining and these restaurants are a hype of activity at the end of the day.

For the early risers, looking for a caffeine fix, Espressivo is an intimate cafe decorated with cheery red umbrellas and space for customers to relax both on the pavement out the front or on the deck out the back. The café is owned and run by Dennis, one of the friendliest baristas around.

Urban Yogi is a modern-day yoga studio providing an array of yoga classes to suit all levels. They teach a contemporary hatha Vinyasa and students can see the benefits in all areas of their lives. Some of the regulars can often be seen heading down to Stavros after class for a cocktail.
