Let the good times roll – W Brisbane turns one and you get all the presents

Since the moment it opened its doors in June last year, W Brisbane cemented itself as one of our city’s most opulent destinations – after all, it is the first five-star hotel that we’ve seen in 20-odd years or so. From the chic-yet-quirky fit-out through to the food and straight-up baller amenities, everything about the space shares a Bris-centric thread while elevating our city’s status to a giddy new height. If you’ve been hanging out for a taste of that luxe life but weren’t ready to drop the coin, let us convince you – to celebrate its first year in operation, W Brisbane is letting the good times roll with a seriously sweet birthday package. more

Striking the right balance between something beautiful and convenient can be a darn tricky business – but there’s an amazing spot that you may not have considered that is hiding in plain sight. For one day only on Saturday April 6, Brisbane Powerhouse is opening its doors to show you why it’s a killer spot for your most special day. more

Moving out – your last chance to check out the Bromley Room at West Village

All good things must come to an end, but this adage is particularly poignant when the thing ending is something as magical as the Bromley Room. The West Village art studio set up to display the amazing work of celebrated artist David Bromley has enjoyed a jam-packed visitor schedule since opening in April last year, but the time has come for the Bromley Room to go into hibernation. Before the doors close for good to make way for building renovations, we are getting one last chance to take a look through the arts and events space that holds some of David’s most exciting work to date. Mark Saturday March 24 and Sunday March 25 in your diary – it’s time to say goodbye to the Bromley Room. more

Introducing HOTA – the Gold Coast’s new Home of the Arts

Brisbane, we'd like you to meet HOTA (Home of the Arts). It's possible you've actually met before – HOTA was formerly known as The Arts Centre Gold Coast and as of today (Tuesday February 6) will be officially named Home of the Arts. This is way more than just a shiny new name – the announcement also marks the unveiling of the cultural precinct's $37.5-million outdoor theatre, which is underscored by a spectacular program of events that will take the city's arts and culture scene to dizzying new heights. If it's been a while in between trips, it's high time you ventured down to check it out. more
