Here’s five that absolutely need to be on your radar…

posted by Karlicca Culalic December 1, 2017 0 comments

Arkie Barton is a formidable fresh-face on the Brisbane design scene and undoubtedly a name to remember.

Most recently, you could find Arkie running rainbow illustration workshops to spearhead the dreamy Yayoi Kusama exhibition at GOMA. With a new collection in the works, we had a quick chat with Arkie about all things that inspire her multi-hued design aesthetic!

#1. A new botanical bar *slash* tropical garden oasis opens up in West End

Brisbane meet Covent Bar, opening TODAY in your West End backyard. It’s a nod to London’s iconic Covent Garden – super-lux, super-vibrant and super lush! Think of this space as a perfect afternoon treat yourself to play catch-up’s with your nearest and dearest and try a selection of Covent’s 100 craft gins. There will be contemporary share-plates as well as Pimms and Aperol Spritz flowing. If you’re feeling adventurous, Covent also has a seasonal house speciality appropriately named The Garden of Eden. It’s a clever mix of Tanqueray gin, absinthe rinse, fresh pressed apple juice, medicinal syrup, charred lime and white pepper tincture. YUM. A haven away from the hustle and bustle of the neighbouring city and BT is all about it!
