Playing home to some of Brisbane’s favourite designers like Gail Sorronda, Zimmermann and Sass & Bide, the precinct not only attracts those seeking a fashionable retail experience but also draws dedicated creatives who bring an intangible feel that is undeniably James St.

Queen Street Mall

5 minutes away
The Queen Street Mall is a vibrant shopping and lifestyle precinct that lies at the heart of Brisbane City and is Australia's most popular pedestrian mall, playing host to more than 26 million visitors a year. The mall offers an unrivalled mix of local, national and international labels and flagship stores. More than 700 retailers have made their homes here – many enjoy mall and street frontage, others are tucked away inside world-class centres and heritage-listed arcades. Must-visits include the sparkling high-end QueensPlaza, Wintergarden with its diverse range of retailers, the magnificent and historically significant Brisbane Arcade and Tattersall's Arcade, the convenient MacArthur Central and the ever-popular The Myer Centre. The Queen Street Mall is not merely the state's shopping hotspot, it is also Brisbane's heart – the place you head with friends and family if it's fun and entertainment you seek. More than 1,000 events take place throughout the mall each year, buskers take over the streets on a daily basis and The City Sounds fills the air with music on Friday nights and weekends. In addition, there is an Event Cinema, countless eateries, a farmers market, beauty salons, the Treasury Casino and Hotel, a Hilton Hotel and NEXT Hotel that all take pride of place on the mall. And parklands, museums, galleries, cafes, day spas, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance from the mall. The Queen Street Mall truly is Queensland’s premier shopping and entertainment destination.

Fortitude Valley

2 minutes away
Fortitude Valley is a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat, and heritage-listed properties proudly stand among contemporary buildings. The Valley, as it is affectionately known, was Australia’s first dedicated entertainment district and continues to be a hive of activity. Live music thrives and international DJs are drawn to the clubs and chic bars. The impressive Chinatown Mall is a hub of exotic Chinese supermarkets and restaurants. The Emporium complex channels a European village feel, James St showcases Australian fashion labels and Brunswick St is home to multicultural dining options.
