The Rabbit Hole Ideation Cafe reopens in Fortitude Valley
West End expat The Rabbit Hole Ideation Cafe has reopened in Fortitude Valley, situated within a restored 1930s bacon factory. Home to adjoining artist studio space The Meat Locker, with Fries Need Mayonnaise and Ion Design already quite settled in, The Bacon Factory is now, too, home to the renewed The Rabbit Hole Ideation Cafe.
Currently just running on ‘phase one’, Rabbit Hole is open for tea and coffee, with ‘phase two’ involving the beloved desk and boardroom cubbyholes up and running again. A rustic, paint-chipped, exposed brick wall frames the space, while power cords loop from the ceiling and bare bulbs form an industrial edge. A collection of books and magazines are on hand to inspire, with DESIGNerd and decks of cards ready for play (read: procrastination) time.
When the food licence kicks in, simple fare of cakes, sandwiches and toast will be on offer, with plans in the works to open for after-work knock-off drinks as well. Starting October 10, The Iron Ladies will set up out the front for Waffle Wednesday, providing passersby by with delicious Norwegian waffles.
Originally created as a compromise space for freelancers to work in a cafe and not feel guilty about sitting about all day, the new Rabbit Hole space will also host exhibitions and events. This Fortitude Valley locale will also act as a hub for the Brisbane design scene to reconnect – with Design College Australia’s creative and old-fashioned letterpress studio soon to be sharing Agnes Street with the techy design agencies.
