If you haven’t heard about the hype surrounding the opening of new Valley entertainment precinct XCargo, you must have been living under a rock, deprived of any kind of communication for the last two years.

Announced in early 2017, the social hub has finally flung open its shipping container doors, and to say Brisbane foodie enthusiasts are losing their minds is the understatement of the year.

Two VERY long years in the making, the open-air shipping container is so much more than just a new venue. With outdoor dining and bar areas, rooftop terraces, beer gardens and even a cinema, XCargo can keep you fed and watered from 6am til late.

Start your morning with lattes and pastries in the sunshine, or stop by for lunch and graze on Cuban inspired bites from Eats Alley whilst sinking pints of Low Tide and High Tide, the venues in-house brew, in the beer garden.

When the sun sets, move upstairs to the Flamingo Lounge and enjoy a cheeky glass of the house Pink Panther rosé as you admire pastel murals and soak up the 70s Miami vibes.

The super instagrammable, super chic surroundings are the perfect backdrop for anything and everything from morning coffees with mum to partying late into the night with the gang.

Call it a precinct, call it a super club, call it the new Valley paradise – we are just calling it worth the wait!
