Where are the best areas to stay in Brisbane?

I'm starting to plan a trip to Brisbane and I want to stay in an area that has a lively, trendy crowd with great restaurants preferably within walking distance. Where would be the best place to stay with these options? Would love hotel recommendations as well :)

    Hi Mira,

    If you are after somewhere trendy and friendly, check out West End. There are a bunch of apartments and hotels in this area and the South Bank Parkland area that are within walking distance to the Brisbane city.

    In West End, the Gunshop is great for brunch or breakfast, the Archive is good for a huge selection of craft beers and Greek Tavern is great for authentic Mediterranean food.

    And along South Bank Parkland there are a few bars and restaurants (they can be a little more expensive).

    Spring Hill is also a good place to stay. It's near Caxton St and The Barracks, where there are plenty of great restaurants and bars that are open until late. Peasant has good food.

    Along Eagle Street Pier Ferry Terminal are some lively bars and places to eat with a great view of the Story Bridge.

    Fortitude Valley (aka The Valley) is good for a late bite and clubbing. Chinatown is also nearby and has a good selection of Asian food.

    Be aware of new lock out laws - I think pubs are staring to close their doors earlier than usual (3am).

    Enjoy!

    I really enjoy staying at the Emporium Hotel Brisbane. I assume my answer is too late for Mira, but hopefully someone else will find the information useful. Brisbane is a great city!

    Best areas would be West End or Fortitude Valley. They are older areas of Brisbane, lots of great places to eat in both of them and fairly easy to get to the city and other sites from there. Try West End - it's a bit different and close to Southbank and the Cultural Centre, GoMA (Gallery of Modern Art), and so on.
