Settle in for morsels and moonshine at GreenHill Bar and Dining

Modern moonshine has come a long way since the shiners in the backwaters of Kentucky. You'll be pleased to know that the white lightning we're referring to won't impair your vision, but there's no guaranteeing it won't become a little hazy after a tipple or two. Enamoured by Melbourne Moonshine on a research trip, Geordie Smith and Bernard Puz decided to bring it home to Brisbane, making it the star of the bar in their latest project, GreenHill Bar and Dining. more

Art and food collide at Spring Hill’s Tumbling Stone

Let's get something straight first up – this is a restaurant, not a typical hotel restaurant. Despite the fact that it adjoins Spring Hill's soon-to-be-opened The Johnson Art Series Hotel, Tumbling Stone holds its own as a stand-alone eatery and bar, which can often be a difficult feat to achieve. Ahead of The Johnson's official opening on Friday September 16 (we'll have more details on that next week), Tumbling Stone has opened its doors early to offer graze-style dining in a laid-back setting. more

Beers ahoy! Hope and Anchor arrives in Paddington

Being part of the European Union is not something that the United Kingdom does well. What it does do well though, is good old-fashioned pubs and cosy bars. You're often greeted by the warmth and familiarity of yesteryear, a fireplace crackling, and some bloody good booze accompanied by simple and delicious comfort food. In light of Brexit, we can understand if you're not overly keen on visiting the UK at the moment. Instead you can just trot on over to Paddington, and find yourself a cushy nook in new bar and eatery Hope and Anchor. more
