Baby, it's cold outside...

The Winter Bucket List

Looking for a place to thaw out this winter?  These James St encounters are the perfect antidote to those winter chills.

 

SCREEN TIME

Cosy up with the family and the biggest bucket of popcorn you can find at the Palace Centro Cinema.  There is nothing better than switching off and enjoying some down time when it’s cold outside.

GET MOVING

Nothing will warm you up like a good yoga session – especially a complimentary one! Salute the sun with lululemon every Sunday morning from 8:30am and work out those winter kinks.

SUBLIME TEMPERATURES

When it’s freezing cold out (and your office heater is blasting at full speed), it’s likely your hair will start paying the price.  Book into Sublime Hairdressing for a treatment and a trim to get your hair back into the groove.

 

READABLE FEAST

Learn a new winter warmer recipe that will impress everyone at the dinner table. Scrumptious Reads plays host to a collection of unique cookbooks, from hearty dinner recipes to vegan desserts.

SPA DAZE

The ‘Be-All End-All’ spa treatment at Endota Day Spa is the perfect way to combat the beauty problems that arise when the mercury drops. It may be grey and wintery outside, but your body will think it is high summer.

FOOD & WINE TRAIL

It’s not a Brisbane winter unless you’ve attended the James St Food & Wine Trail – a gastronomic edit of all things James St!  We’ll see you there from the 30th of July to the 1st of August.

 

THIGH HIGH

Splurge on keeping your ten little toes warm with a new pair of boots from ZOMP. Don’t hold back – the thigh is the limit!

COMFORT FOOD

Warm up from the inside with a full belly of pasta from Bucci. Throw in a glass or two of Italian wine, and you’ll be dreaming of the Amalfi sun in no time.

BAKED EGGS

Head to Gerard’s Bistro on a Sunday morning to feast on Shakshouka – the perfect winter breakfast dish. Team it with seriously crispy sourdough and piping hot coffee for the ultimate heavy head cure.

 

 

NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Turn your house into the ultimate winter nest with expert advice from the team at Magnolia InteriorsDisclaimer: Once they’ve got their hands on your place, you’ll never want to leave!

WINE NOT?

The best winter drinks are red, so stock up on pinot, shiraz and merlot at Cru Bar & Cellar and enjoy a few bottles with friends in New Farm Park.

GET WHISKED AWAY

Indulge in a whiskey-laced cocktail in a cosy nook at Sixes and Sevens. Get comfortable amongst the pillows, and lose track of the time (and the temperature!)

 

 

SUIT UP

The cooler months are the perfect time to get tailored Don Draper style.  Richards & Richards have you covered (and fitted). Ditch the classic QLD summer style and adopt a new look, inspired by the Northern Hemisphere.

WOOD FIRED

Stay warm by grabbing a seat next to the oven at Tinderbox and feast upon wood fired pizza until you’re ready to pop.  The funghi pizza is a sure-fire way to over-indulge in the best way possible.
