|Also on Grey
Street is the Queensland Conservatorium. These are the
venues where locals and visitors can connect to what’s
significant in the past
and enjoy world-class music, as well as visual and
performing arts. Some performances can be savored while
dining, and some can even be
experienced for free. The street is also a food lover’s
paradise, as it is dotted with coffee shops and restaurants
catering to various culinary persuasions.
People can dine on Japanese food at Ginga Japanese
Restaurant, partake of Italian cuisine at Café Dell’Ugo, and
sample the Eastern offerings of Batavia, Ahmets Turkish
Restaurant and Timmy’s Restaurant, which offers East-West
fusion cuisine. They can also drop in at Greystone Bar and
Cellar for some beer or wine. These establishments all offer
vegetarian food choices.
To enjoy shopping and other recreation, one does not have to
leave Grey Street. The latest in clothes, shoes, bags and
accessories from all over
the world can be bought in shops like Izabel, Jonak and
Akuti Clothes Boutique. Shoppers can also go to Batavia for
colonial inspired home products,
or buy arts and crafts products in the weekend market.
For those who love watching movies on the big screen, they
can enjoy the 3D screen at the
IMAX® Theatre. A notable
proof of how cosmopolitan the establishments here are is not
only its openness to and show of international influences,
but also the consideration of the needs of the disabled in
their facilities. Grey Street’s attractions are just a step
off the rail system’s South Brisbane Station, which is also
on Grey Street.
