Brisbane’s Hidden Gems | South Brisbane Precinct

With the chaos of the city on the outskirts, South Brisbane Precinct is a city dwellers perfect escape. Aria Property Group has assisted in created a hub of dining that is unlike any other in the city.

Habitat Restaurant & Bar

Good beats, great food and cocktails that are out of this world, Habitat is your ultimate down town destination. Australian rugby player, Scott Higginnbotham and business partner Malcom Watts have created a venture that has given life to the area. I was lucky enough to sample some of their marvels as pictured below. Their espresso martini’s are some of the best I have ever had.

Billy Kart Kitchen

If you haven’t already paid Billy Kart a visit, the best way to describe it would be a ‘home away from home’. It is the sister venue to the popular Billy Kart Kitchen in Annerley, showcasing dishes from Celebrity Chef, Ben O’Donoghue. The venue is hard to miss, located under the big, green Botanica wall. Some of my favourite options include the Truffled white bean puree with black olive crumb and the succulent oysters.


Saccharomyces Beer Cafe 

It’s the bar which I cannot pronounce even when sober. But I will tell you this much, I love the vibe of the place. Hidden away in ¬†Fish Lane, the venue is a treasury one stumbles upon rather than plans to head to. It is a destination where memories are made. So how do you pronounce it? Sac-ar-o-my-sees, or so I am told. How about I just refer to it as that cool bar.

Julius Pizzeria

Not too sure how these guys did it, but however they did it, it worked. Julius is a little taste of Italy. The restaurant is buzzing, the street is packed with laughter and the food…oh the food. It is amazing. It would have to be one of my top 10 date venues. The beginning of something great. What else does one order at a pizzeria? Pizza of course.

Maker Bar

Officially my favourite destination. If you haven’t already been there, then you probably don’t know about it. This is a gem, a hidden gem. A pop-up lane way bar that will impress! It almost reminded me of the streets of Paris,very mystical.
