Perhaps most well-known for its always-pumping nightlife scene, and although still true, Fortitude Valley (or ‘The Valley’ as it’s known to locals) has evolved significantly within the last few years.
No longer is this inner-city precinct simply a place to enjoy a wild night out, but rather has become a go-to for some of the best restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping, and hotels in the city.
Here relaxed brunch cafes mix with cosy Chinatown eateries and upmarket European restaurants. Indie record stores and art galleries add a bohemian vibe, while the Judith Wright Centre showcases performing arts from contemporary dance to poetry recitals.
Explore the hidden Winn, Bakery and California lanes and the many unique stores that lie within. Enjoy the hottest gigs at Brisbane's brand-new entertainment venue, Fortitude Music Hall, located in the heart of Fortitude Valley.
For those interested in retail therapy, one cannot go past a stroll down the ultra-cool James Street.
