James St has established itself as the prime shopping and entertainment district in Brisbane and Australia. From their inner-city industrial roots, the street and surrounding area have evolved into a high-energy urban shopping zone.
Individuals seeking a design-forward shopping experience in a lush outdoor urban setting flock to the area. There are approximately 110 specialty shops to visit, including various fashion businesses such as bassike, BESPOKED by Ian Chang, Elka Collective, Natasha Schweitzer, and more. Award-winning restaurants and cafes include Gerard's Bistro, which is routinely named one of Queensland's and Australia's best. Another is James St Bakery, a purpose-built bakery that offers the finest handcrafted all-natural sourdough and patisserie choices.
In addition, James St is also home to art galleries, design havens, and health & beauty shops. The district also hosts pop-up stores, workshops, and other events, such as the James Street Food & Wine Trail. On July 31, from 10 p.m. to 6 p.m., the Market Day will return as part of the James Street Food & Wine Trail. Save the date for the most delectable day on James St. A stretch of the street will be closed to accommodate gourmet market vendors as the restaurant scene on James St has grown since the last instalment. The 2022 edition will surely be the tastiest street-wide celebration yet.
