We asked two very different travellers, Matt and Kate, to visit Brisbane for two very different weekends. They chose what to do, they took the pictures and they reported back to us.

ROAST ASSURED
We shake off the travel cobwebs and head to Bean (Laneway 181, George St) for a coffee hit. One of Brisbane CBD’s best cafés, Bean sources its coffee through Bellissimo (who, more than one friend tells us, are the best roasters in Brisbane). We grab some takeaway, staying for a minute to check out the art.

DAPPER DUDES
Ben and Nick Chiu have a reputation that these days extends to the southern capitals. And it’s all because of Apartment (aptmnt.com), the brothers’ Albert Street boutique that has been decking out Brisbane menfolk for eight years. We chat to the bros, before picking up some new Chup socks. Thanks Nick. Thanks Ben.

ENCLAVE OF PLEASURE
The Barracks (61 Petrie Tce, city) has become Brisbane’s hottest new precinct. We head up the hill west of the city and settle in at Italian eatery Cabiria (6 The Barracks, 61 Petrie Tce; cabiria.com.au).

RAISING THE BAR
Long before hip bars became a thing in Brisbane there was The Bowery (676 Ann St, Fortitude Valley, thebowery. com.au), which retains its reputation as one of the city’s best joints for an aperitif or cheeky cocktail.
