The WallOur dedicated artist’s space. Always fresh, always local
Quirky, kitsch, classy or cool – all ways to describe a James Street local going about their daily business within a hotbed of cultural and creative happenings. Springing up from industrial roots, this tree-lined stretch in New farm is the place to see and be seen. Mixing Brisbane's balmy temperatures with a high energy urban community, our locals don't have to travel for their kicks - throwing on their Technical Cashmere™ to grab their morning coffee from Chester Street Bakery through to finishing off the day with a nightcap at Sixes and Sevens (directly opposite Kit and Ace – how about that?), James Street abounds with effortless cool.
