Bringin’ the heat – say bienvenidos to the new-look cocktail spot Southbeach

Summer is coming, folks. Soon we'll all be seeking out shady spots to soak up some rays with an icy cocktail in hand. When we want to party in the city when the heat is on, we like to do it near water – and the recently revamped Southbeach looks to be a prime spot for relaxed revelry. Boasting a blend of colourful Miami vibes and chic Palm Springs aesthetics, Southbeach has the look and feel of a breezy tropical beach club. Throw in a range of tantalising bites and specialty cocktails and you got all the makings of a heat-beating oasis. more

The round-up: Brisbane’s best bakeries

Let's be real for a spell – is there anything as pure and good as a freshly baked loaf of bread? We think not. If we are being completely honest with ourselves, a simple artisan-baked sourdough or baguette is enough to put a smile on our face, but place us in front of a cabinet filled with flaky croissants, picture-perfect pastries, tantalising tarts and dreamy doughnuts, and we're overcome with joy. Brisbane boasts a bevy of fantastic bakeries – each stocked with a salivation-worthy selection of goodies. Want to know who we consider to be some of the city's best? Read on ... more

Happiness in a can – Mr Black unveils a ready-to-drink espresso martini

RTDs, or ready-to-drink beverages, generally get a pretty bad wrap. Mostly sickly sweet or too basic, they rarely taste anything like the analogue version they are supposed to. Until now. After three (long) years of research and development, the legendary Mr Black Espresso Martini team has unveiled a 200-ml can to shake up and enjoy anywhere. Made using top-grade arabica coffee, pure Australian vodka, and a generous splash of Mr Black Coffee Liqueur (obviously), the new ready-to-drink offering means you never have to endure a mediocre espresso martini ever again. We'll cheers to that. more
