“Great multi-cultural, character suburb.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

West End has always been very multicultural and, despite being across river from Brisbane CBD, it has retained it's character. Great little cafes & restaurants, op shops and not too much redevelopment.

“Great suburb in Brisbane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

I have lived in West End for a while and although I don't anymore I still go back regularly. There are lots of little great cafes, restaraunts and music spots for all tastes. Some of my favs are Sling (cocktail bar), Three Monkeys (cafe with lots of little nooks to sit and relax), Lock and Load (Great food and really great music acts that play there). There are plenty more places to enjoy and is definitely worth exploring.

“LOVE THIS PLACE.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

West End is a alternative funky little area located near southbank. There are endless shops, cafes restaurants, street performers, pubs and the biggest pool hall ive ever seen. I highly recommend a coffee at either 'the three monkeys' or 'the gun shop cafe'. The service is always impecciable, polite and friendly.

“A bit of the Melbourne "village scene" in Brisbane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

A great spot for a casual bite to eat, live entertainment, shopping for things you can't buy in mainstream shops, people watching...not to mention great produce from the West End markets. Brisbane's 'alternate lifestyle' epicentre but a place that is welcoming to everybody.....
