Inside Portside – September 2018 – The Ultimate Girls Day Out
Spring is here! What better way to celebrate than spending the day with your friends! If you’re stuck for what to do, we’ll let you in on some of the best kept secrets about spending the ultimate day at Portside Wharf.
Start your morning by sweating it out at Studio Pilates. It’s the perfect way to clear your mind and get energised for the day ahead. Try one of their 40-minute morning platinum studio workouts to get those endorphins pumping. Trust us; after a Pilates session, you’ll be ready to conquer the world!
Once your work out is done, sit back and relax with a morning coffee or breakfast at Cruiser’s Alfresco. If you’re in the mood for a treat (you’ve earned it) then order the European inspired Mediterranean breakfast. For the sweet tooth, try the strawberry waffles, we can’t go past them!
Workout, tick! Breakfast, tick! It’s pamper o’clock! Stroll over to Tigerlamb salon for a blow dry, fresh cut or a full colour service! These ladies are professionals at making you feel like a million dollars and their talented team know just how to give you a phenomenal hair experience. #hairgoals
Once you’ve stepped out of the salon feeling like a new you, complete the pamper experience by heading to KC Nails! This season’s on trend colours include lilacs, lavenders and baby pastels, so it’s time to update last season’s nail polish! If you’ve got the time why not stay for a fresh mani or pedi? Trust us; you won’t regret it and neither will your girlfriends.
After all that pampering you must be hungry! Get the ultimate Japanese dining experience at Sono. With so many delicious options it’s hard to choose, but to get a little bit of everything opt for one of their lunchtime Bento Boxes. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, try the lunch tasting course, it’s perfect for sharing with the girls.
Five o’clock has rolled around and doesn’t a cocktail at Byblos sound enticing? Byblos has an extensive cocktail menu full of unique and delicious flavours and who better to share a cocktail with then your girlfriends! Welcome the night by sitting by the river and sipping on one of Byblos’ sensational creations.
If you can’t get enough of seafood, try Fresh N Wild’s seafood platters. We recommend trying the coconut barramundi, tempura seafood baos, or for something to share, the cold seafood platter with cooked prawns, natural oysters, Moreton Bay bug and marinated octopus.
For something hearty and very picturesque, then dinner at Belvedere Bar N Grill with its backdrop of the Brisbane River is the spot for you. Finish off a well spent day by sharing the mushroom arancini, beef carpaccio or the antipasto share platter. You’ll be in comfort food heaven and extremely satisfied.
End your night with a movie; Dendy Cinemas always has a fantastic range of movies from the action packed blockbuster to the newest romantic comedy. There’s no better way to end the day than with popcorn in hand and the best flick out!
