Tips For An Ideal Day Out In Brisbane’s New ‘West Village’
Soon to play host to the latest in world-class retail and residential developments, Brisbane’s West End is about to get a whole lot more exciting. The launch of West Village, at the site of the old Peters Ice Cream factory, will bring with it nine new apartment buildings and a range of new eateries, markets, boutiques and garden spaces. From the same people who have brought to life stellar concepts in Sydney such as Central Park in Chippendale and East Village in Zetland, West Village is set to become the ultimate destination for modern living in Brisbane. Stunning 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments are available but there’s a lot to check out regardless of whether you live there or not. To celebrate the upcoming launch of West Village, we’ve found a few great ways you can enjoy the new precinct with your partner (or soon to be) and have an awesome date.
During The Day
To kick off your date, head to West Village Brisbane in the afternoon where you and your partner can explore the beautiful architecture on show. Wander in through the intimate Peters Lane, inspired by the ambient laneways found in Copenhagen. Much like Melbourne as well, whose buzzing laneways really characterise the city, the ones found in West Village add a distinct personality to the area – one of a tight-knit and friendly community. Within the laneways, you’ll be greeted by boutiques and cafes aplenty. Grab a coffee and browse the bookstore before heading over to the lively Peters Square. Reminiscent of the iconic Chelsea Markets in New York, which is abundant with fresh produce, flowers and a great sense of community, you’ll find a similar vibe here. Explore all the beautiful artisanal food on offer and pick up a gourmet lunch for you both to enjoy on The Common; West Village’s public green space. The vibrant garden is the ideal place to kick back and enjoy the company of your date. Relax and unwind on the lush green grass of The Common while basking in the beautiful Brisbane weather before heading into the evening part of your date.
In The Evening
Offering a totally unique nightlife experience, Factory Lane in West Village is a Brooklyn-inspired hub of drinks and food coupled with a festive atmosphere. Taking note from the best of New York’s bar scene, Factory Lane has the power to transport you and your date to another era. Think whisky laced drinks in speakeasies with the sound of jazz and the buzz of people around you in the background. When you’re ready for some food, take a walk through the festoon-lined laneways between the old factory buildings to the various dining options on offer. It’ll be difficult not to be impressed by the spirited offering of Factory Lane and West Village at large.
