After months of waiting, locals will soon witness the much-anticipated opening of the latest food and party destination in the Valley. Mark the date: 28 July 2018.

The Social Hub X Cargo on McLachlan Street in Fortitude Valley will welcome you to a tropical paradise. Boasting of summer-y vibe enhanced by tropical terraces, the multi-functional space will offer a number of bars and dining areas.

Expect a dedicated area for all of your local food truck favourites at the site’s very own food truck alley. With a stack of shipping containers acting as the venue’s pièce de résistance, your morning coffee runs and night catch-up with friends will become more relaxed and fun.

Not only will X Cargo cater to anything that you can put in your mouth, it is also set to bring entertainment such as an outdoor cinema and boutique events.

On the ground, you will feel welcome at their main beer garden, The Lawn, which features a 40-foot bar and entertainment area. The Eats Alley will also be on the same area. Their kitchen, cafe space, and the Palm Lounge can be found need the street front.

The upper levels will feature the shipping containers converted into something that mimics a house booth with seats, high tables, and lounge areas with wonderful views.

The Lookout will also provide you with views of the McLachlan Street Strip and The Lawn, whilst The Flamingo Lounge will overlook the Eats Alley.

The kitchen will be headed by the former chef of The Meat & Wine Co in Melbourne, Peter Popow. The food will focus on American cuisine mixed with Cuban flavours. The cafe will open early for your morning coffee and a selection of tasteful pastries. Of course, there will be a dine-in option.

The bars will keep the drinks flowing with a wide selection of liquor, from beers, to wines, and to tap cocktails.

X Cargo will be the first of its kind in the city.
