“Great funky alternative urban village”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

A wonderful (and eclectic) range of restaurants. A fascinating collection of shops, great bookshops including one of Brisbane's best bookshops (Avid Reader). Multiple good live music venues. Interesting and diverse inhabitants all within walking range of the CBD. Public transport is good and if you venture out of Boundary street to the river you'll find beautiful leafy river front parks.

“Interesting food, interesting vibe - love going here!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

When we head to Brisbane we always try to stop in West End to buy takeaway from the Indian place.

The whole area has a certain multicultural vibe that we love although that is slowly changing with all the new coffee shops etc.
