John Mills Himself is a Hidden Gem in the Heart of Brisbane


As a long-term local, I'm amazed when I find a hidden gem in Brisbane. It's a delight to stumble across someplace new and fun. Last weekend I went on a high tea walking tour that finished at an establishment I had no idea existed - and it's right in the heart of the city.

John Mills Himself is a cafe and bar that can be accessed via Archive Books on Charlotte Street by day, but by night, can only be accessed via a driveway off Elizabeth Street that, at first glance, appears only to lead to a car park. The location, originally inhabited by a printer (the aforementioned John Mills) has charming decor and sense of history you rarely find in Brisbane. Almost everything on the menu, including the alcohol, is sourced locally and ethically.

I love discovering hidden gems just like John Mills Himself, so I'd love to hear from you about the hidden gems you have found and what you thought about them.
