Fortitude Valley is a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat, and heritage-listed properties proudly stand among contemporary buildings. From the cranking of a coffee grinder to the final closing doors of nightclubs – Fortitude Valley is the suburb that never sleeps.
The Valley, as it is affectionately known, was Australia’s first dedicated entertainment district and continues to be a hive of activity. Live music pumps and international DJs are drawn to the clubs and chic bars. From local acts at the tiniest dive bar, through to big names at The Fortitude Music Hall –Brisbane's live music scene was born, raised and continues to thrive on these streets.
For a pre-music feed, Chinatown Mall is a hub of Chinese supermarkets and restaurants where it's easy to get a quick, tasty meal at BYO restaurants.
By day the suburbs chic laneways and upmarket James Street run the show. Along the leafy James Street find 130 boutique Australian fashion and homewares stores alongside trendy cafes and a gourmet markethall. The suburb's quirky laneways – Bakery Lane, Winn Lane and California Lane – are known for their tiny shopfronts hosting small-time local fashion designers and pop-up stores.
