Caxton Street

Home > Brisbane > Shopping | Food and Wine
Published November 15th 2010
Want restaurants, clubs and entertainment all within one convenient location? Then look no further than Caxton Street in the groovy inner city suburb of Paddington.

Caxton Street has long been a destination for locals who are enticed by the wide selection of restauarants (the iconic seafood eatery Gambaros [33 Caxton Street] is one of Brisbane's oldest) and clubs (like good-time favourites such as Hotel LA [68 Petrie Terrace] and the Caxton Hotel [38 Caxton Street]). For a fun night out, there's also the Sit Down Comedy Club (186 Given Terrace), Le Blanc Contemporary Art gallery (The Barracks, Petrie Terrace) and live music every Friday night at the Palace Cinema. But Caxton Street is more than just a nightlife destination. For a unique, high end shopping experience, try The Barracks (61 Petrie Terrace).

Opening in 2008, The Barracks has come a long way since its early days as Brisbanes first jail. These days, the modern shopping centre houses retail outlets, gourmet food retailers (including Bittersweets - the Chocolate Boutique) and fine dining - try The Chelsea for breakfast, Peasant for tapas and Libertine for a gourmet night out. The Barracks is also home to The Palace Cinemas, one of Brisbanes few remaining (and perhaps the most elegant) art house movie theatres. Shoppers are entitled to two hours free parking.

More than just a post-Suncorp Stadium venue, Caxton Street dishes food, fashion and fun every day (and night) of the week.
