Canvas – delicious ambience, share plates, alco bevs and wall art. BYO friends. Perfect.

The G20 is coming to Brisbane, bringing with it a little madness and a lot of security exercises.

It’s the perfect time to step into the retro enclave at the end of Logan Road near the famous ‘Gabba…

It has some of our favourite places all in one street. We love Canvas, with its delicious ambience, share plates, alco bevs and wall art. BYO friends and you have perfection.

The Crosstown is a place you, well, cross town for. Always a pleasure..

Meanwhile the Crosstown is, well, a place you’d cross town for. Always a pleasure…

For a little vintage shopping or browsing pleasure, start at Absolutely Fabulous. The sign on the door says it all: Prepare to shop (you’ve been warned).

Move onto Lavish for ‘interior styling and home staging’ (I love a good tagline).

Or slip back into the rockabilly and pin-up couture of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s at That Shop.

 

If you’re feeling the music in you, visit the beautiful Ilja Grawer Double Bass to Violin shop.

Or if you’d rather slip into some lycra and peddle your heart out, Planet Cycle will get you going.

But wait, there’s more…gorgeous antiques, a very cool bridal bazaar, and more fabulous cafes and restaurants.

And next weekend, you can join a street celebration of food, music and eclectic wares at the End of the Line Festival. Seems like the perfect time to kick back and absorb the retro atmosphere in one of Brisbane’s secret treasures.

Might see you there…
