People might criticize Brisbane’s Laneways as trying to be Melbourne, but who cares really. The laneway context is different and I’m all for the activation and rethinking of urban space. I went to Creative Drinks, which was held at Alley Bar, and it activated the laneway and parking area. I’ve lived here my whole life and would never have walked down there, and didn’t even know some of the buildings existed there- so seems like a great strategy to me.
