West End

Inner-city West End is a mix of the young and the old, the hipster and the new age, the transient and the fixed.

Its quirky charm is captured in independent boutiques, international restaurants, intimate coffee shops and organic grocery stores. There is something happening almost every hour of the day – from multicultural celebrations to markets, book readings to political symposiums. West End’s hallowed pubs and clubs have forged a legacy in Brisbane’s music scene, sprouting greats like the Go-Betweens and the Saints. Find out who’s playing; it’d be a sin not to see live music while in West End.
