Suburban Social Holland Park – Opening Soon
In December 2016, Chapel Hill locals were blessed with the arrival of neighbourhood hang Suburban Social. The brainchild of Kris Dadson and Luke Dillon has been ticking along sweetly ever since, and now the duo are set to expand with a new 90-seat Suburban Social location in Holland Park due in late March. As locals are moving to Brisbane’s outer belt in increasing numbers, the Suburban Social team saw a great opportunity to replicate their brand of hospitality along these growth corridors. Kris and Luke have secured an old character-filled building (formerly a convenience store and fish and chippery) for the expansion, and are currently in the process of giving it an eclectic, mismatched industrial-inspired makeover. The structure’s high sloping roof will be complemented by new bifolds, added skylights, a double-fronted bar, a mural and a new deck – creating a lived-in oasis for the local community to enjoy. The team is using the opportunity to give the menu a long-overdue overhaul, adding vegan-friendly and vegetarian dishes alongside a refreshed selection of burgers, mains and share plates which will be on offer at both sites. As for the drink, Suburban Social’s eight taps will pour independently owned craft beers, while boutique wines and Australian-made house-pour spirits will also be available.
