From Mantra on Edward you can stroll and discover Brisbane's newest laneway bars and restaurants or arrive at the Eagle Street Pier eateries within a matter of minutes. There are plenty of dining options dotted along the Brisbane River to suit all tastes and budgets and, if the mood takes you, the famous Story Bridge Hotel is also within walking distance and is a Brisbane institution.
You're never far away from a wide range of dining options close to Edward Street. The Eagle Street dining precinct known for Brisbane's best riverside dining and bar scene is just a few minutes away on foot; the Queen Street Mall and surrounds offer a variety of pubs and al a carte dining and is the gateway to Brisbane's burgeoning laneway dining. Venture out a little further and you'll find yourself in the heart of Fortitude Valley – Australia's first Special Entertainment Precinct - with its allure of night life, live music, alfresco dining and late night clubs.
A short cab ride from the hotel and you'll stumble upon Teneriffe with its funky micro-breweries or the Brisbane Powerhouse – a contemporary multi-arts and dining venue – it's great for Sunday brekkie. Across the river, South Bank is brimming with excellent eateries and to the west, Caxton Street brings hipster funk to Brisbane. Add to this the plethora of eating options within the James Street precinct or the multi-cultural delights in Brisbane's West End (paradoxically adjoining South Brisbane) and you're spoilt for choice.
