Eat, Shop, And Play At James Street’s Lush New Social Hub

A treat for the senses!  

By Jess Gee | 28th June 2021

The luxe and leafy James Street will soon be home to a thriving (and oh-so ‘grammable) dining paradise opening in mid-July. Featuring a bustling Lebanese restaurant, exotic nursery, and abundant flower bar, it’s set to become the lush heart of Brisbane’s go-to lifestyle precinct.

The Green, located at 27 James Street, is a landmark venue of the renowned pop-up Green Space, which has been satisfying all our coffee and plant needs since late last year. The extension of the existing hub is set to become every foodie’s dream – a Middle Eastern-inspired locale that nods to the owners’ strong Lebanese origins.

With international travel off the cards, The Green offers an escape into Middle Eastern culture, with an explosion of culinary and design elements that will transport you to another world. Guests of the Lebanese paradise can expect a pinnacle of modernism coupled with purposeful tradition. Alongside the freshly brewed coffees you’ve come to expect, you’ll also feast on bubbly flat breads, sweet honey-soaked cheese, and homemade falafels in one of the most design-savvy restaurants Brisbane has ever seen!

The Green is conceptualised by internationally acclaimed designer, Borhan Ghofrani, who set out to create a meaningful social hub that would slot seamlessly into the lavish James Street district. On a journey to share the captivating experience of the Middle Eastern culture, the team has created a stylish eatery that embodies the tastes of a region renowned for its fragrance, mystery, and passion.

Two-time Chef Hat winner, Warren Turnbull will be staking his claim in the kitchen as head chef, offering a menu that will rouse taste buds, featuring authentic Lebanese offerings. The kitchen will combine traditional home cooking with modern techniques to create a dynamic culinary experience that brings The Green’s culture to life.

The Green is now open at 1/27 James Street, Fortitude Valley.
