A slice of Spain in the suburbs – Botellón brings wine and tapas to Graceville

Typically, once you cross the Walter Taylor Bridge at Indooroopilly and head down Honour Avenue towards Graceville, your options for cosy watering holes diminish. Well, good news for locals of Brisbane’s deep west – a new uber-chic wine bar is looking to change this. Botellón is a cosy Spanish-inspired tapas and vino bar that is blending a classically cool interior with flavoursome share plates that will have you crossing the bridge far more often. more

Unwined Bar & Kitchen pops the cork on new Racecourse Road hotspot

A stellar list of vino and a menu of Nepalese-inspired eats are on the cards for Ascot’s newest eatery, which is set to open its doors to the public on Friday May 17. Unwined Bar & Kitchen is setting up shop in the cosy former home of The Stables Craft Bar & Kitchen, shifting gears from the froth-focused offering to concentrate on new-wave wines from young, emerging makers. In good news for Ascot locals, Unwined is also looking to set itself up as a low-key late-night haunt for night owls starved for suitable options. more

Vino but not as you know – Wine Playground returns to showcase our country’s most progressive drops

When it comes to the world of wine, things can come across as awfully serious. For those of us who enjoy a good drop, it can be hard to imagine just hanging out with the actual people that make wine – you know, the folk off in the vineyards tinkering and perfecting all of the delicious varieties we enjoy on the regular. One beloved event that puts a personal spin on the world of viticulture is Wine Playground, a day for vino-loving folk to sip and sample drops from some of Australia’s top winemakers – all while the winemakers themselves are present. Returning to Happy Boy (and its sibling Snack Man) on Saturday May 25, this is one sipping spectacular you won’t want to miss. more

Sold on Seoul – why this South Korean hotspot should be at the top of your travel bucket list

For a while now, Japan has held dominion over Australians seeking an exciting and enriching Asian escape. No shade at all to the land of the rising sun, but we’ve caught wind of another holiday destination that is well worth your attention – we’re talking Seoul, South Korea! From the delectable food offering through to the breathtaking vistas and killer cultural scene, this city is a diamond just waiting for you to discover it – not to mention you can get there in just over nine hours. Getting curious? To celebrate the fact that they now do flights directly to South Korea, we’ve teamed up with Gold Coast Airport to bring you the best bits of Seoul. Be warned – this list will incite some serious wanderlust and have you wanting to hop on the next available plane (which you can find here, by the way). more
