DATE NIGHT

Love is in the air… and doesn’t it make you hungry?

Are you thinking it’s time to treat your better half to a night more special than just Netflix and 2-minute noodles? Then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got romance, we’ve got candlelight… and some of the best drinks and eats Brisbane has to offer.

Start off the evening at the start of the lane, with a delicious pre-dining sip from the one and only Maker. With its beautifully bespoke mood lighting and the artisanal cocktails made customised to match, there’s no better place to enchant your partner and begin the night.

For those Romeo’s looking to romance, there’s no better place to confess your love than under the moon at La Lune. Besides the steady flow of relaxed wines on offer to keep the nerves under control, their decadent winter menu of Buckwheat Pappardelle and Wagyu Teres can even do the heart-warming for you.

The couples past the honeymoon stage and thinking of taking the next step in their relationship will feel right at home at Punjabi Palace, who’s family-friendly feel is the perfect place to grow a food baby. Fall head over heels for their rich lamb masala or tandoori mains before stepping back into the lane and strolling to the next destination…

End the night with a sweet note – after all, the best deep and meaningfuls always happen over a scoop of gelato. Prepare to spoon and make love-eyes over any one of Gelato Messina’s thirty-five flavours. As for suggestions, nothing says ‘I adore you’ more than Strawberries and Cream, which is both sugary sweet and generous in flavour.

The art of ardour lies in art itself – therefore, remember to feast not only your stomachs but also your eyes over all the beautiful murals adorning the walls of the laneway as you make your way through it tonight.
