Mouth-watering dishes, drinks to delight every taste and the who’s who of the South Brisbane music, foodie and bar community will gather on Saturday May 7 at the Fish Lane Festival for a memorable night for your tastebuds.

After a precinct revamp by Aria Property Group, Fish Lane is becoming a destination of culinary delight as it mixes the free-spirited character of West End and the culture of South Bank at its location between Merivale and Grey Streets.

The festival, which will run from midday until 10pm, will feature signature dishes and drinks from West End and South Brisbane icons such as Julius Pizzeria, Madame Wu, Bird’s Nest Restaurant, Billy Kart Kitchen, the Fox Hotel and more, as well as a delicious cameo appearance from the highly-anticipated, soon to be Fish Lane operator Gelato Messina.

Just an example of the dishes that popular West End icon Bird’s Nest Restaurant will be serving at the festival.

Michael Zaicek, of Aria Property Group, said the Fish Lane Festival would be a celebration of the area’s emergence as a premiere dining and drinking destination. “The evolution of Fish Lane from run-down underpass for the train line above to a dining and entertainment precinct is a great example of urban renewal for our rapidly evolving city,” Zaicek said. “It’s an atmospheric and intimate space adjoining the mass traffic generators of QPAC, GOMA and the broader cultural precinct. All food stall operators are local businesses who ply their trade in and around Fish Lane and South Brisbane,” Zaicek said. “The Fish Lane Festival is a showcase for local business. It is extremely popular – a place where people want to hang out.”

Proudly presented by Aria Property Group and The Fox Hotel, Fish Lane Festival is a free entry event and is open to all members of the family. Taking place on Saturday 7 May at Fish Lane, the day-and-night event is not to be missed. More information and updates can be found on the event’s Facebook page here.
