California Lane is the latest funky hidden laneway to be unveiled in Fortitude Valley. Named after California Café, a Brisbane institution that stood on the corner of Brunswick and McLachlan Streets for more than forty years, the legacy lives on with this new laneway destination.
California Lane has a relaxed, West Coast vibe – think palm trees, pastel walls and pink flamingos – with plenty of al fresco dining space.
*Access is currently via Brunswick Street’s long-term residents such as Reverends Fine Coffee, Ltd Espresso and Fat Dumpling. New tenants, located in the laneway, will be revealed soon but include a boutique, beauty salon, cocktail bar and tiki bar/barber.
Watch this space!
*Correct at time of visiting in Sep 2018.
