These days it seems The Fox Hotel is no stranger in the vocab of the token millennial. It is the home of popular neon haunt Dandy’s Bar after all. Perhaps though it’s best-kept secret is right, under, your, nose. Trocadero Long Bar is the darling downstairs space on Melbourne Street, just a skip and hop from Fish Lane and situated perfectly to make this your newest after TAFE and uni hang. With word of a new dessert menu, three girlfriends and I piled into the Fox on a stormy Saturday with our sights set firmly on hearty wet-weather comfort food. Along with a warm sense of hospitality from everyone we encountered, that is exactly what we found.

In celebration of Montrachet‘s move to the vibrant bustle that is King Street, there will be a mini champagne themed festival held in the laneway occupying Machinery Street. How gorgeous! The Parisian themed affair will include three pop-up bars and offer a selection of twelve premium champagnes for the event’s starry-eyed guests. Think, an assortment of vintage and rosé champagnes accompanied by all your favourite French pastries. Montrachet’s new digs will also mark the opening of a traditional French-style boulangerie with Australian artisan bakers trained by Patrick Delbar from Lyon, France. I can already smell the almond croissants and chocolate eclairs! Tickets are $49pp and in true tradition, they will include a drop of Montrachet’s very finest NV Louis Roederer Brut Premier on arrival…

Bisous! Book tickets here.


Where: Machinary Street, Bowen Hills
When: Saturday 9 December, 10AM to 2PM
Ticket price: $49pp

It’s official. Lonely Planet, yes, THAT Lonely Planet (to reiterate the very same one that awards accolades to the likes of dreamy Paris and London) has named *our* Newstead one of the three coolest neighbourhoods in Australia. I’m sorry but we can’t help feeling like a proud mum. Territorial even, like a die-hard, day one fan of an underground indie rock band everyone’s just discovered playing on Nova. Alas, it’s no surprise this neck of the woods has made it in the big league! Newstead is a treasure trove of exclusive restaurants, bars and cafe’s alike. So without further ado, here are ten reasons we love this leafy riverside ‘it’ suburb. When I say reasons, I mean more like – fantastic places to consider putting on your mental list of places to eat next. As always though, you’re welcome.
