No Time To Die

We’d be lying if we said we weren’t excited to be viewing Daniel Craig’s last hurrah to the Bond franchise, with the highly anticipated No Time To Die film screening at Palace Cinemas this month. It got us thinking, what would a day look like if our favourite M16 agent visited The Barracks..?

We’re not too sure how much sleep he gets, but we are certain he would be in need of a strong, rich coffee to get him through the day. Being the smart guy he is, it’s a no brainer to order an espresso shot from Cafe Two 14. It’s instant confirmation that Australian coffee culture is the most advanced in the world.

While he travels for work on a regular basis, who’s to say Bond doesn’t get a little homesick? Luckily, The British Film Festival presented by Palace returns in 2021 for its ninth year with a standout selection of films from the British Isles has officially launched.

The line-up features thirty-one films celebrating the finest filmmakers and acting talent the region has to offer. The 2021 programme includes performances from favourites including Dame Judi Dench (or M, as Bond refers to her), Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, Olivia Colman, Odessa Young, Colin Firth, Michael Caine and Timothy Spall.

Meet The Newest Family Member

With Chinese food so delicious, you’ll forget you’re in Brisbane. Uncle Wang’s has opened its doors at The Barracks to bring you authentic flavours that pay homage to the true and beautiful spice of Chinese cuisine. 

When 007 can’t be dining at one of the Golden Dragon Casino’s finest restaurants in Macau, he’d absolutely be pulling up a seat at the long marble bar at Uncle Wang’s for an evening bite. First things first, Bond would be ordering a Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred. He would then embrace the colours, textures and tastes of the tantalising menu with signature classics and modern delights. 

While he is an international man of mystery, he won’t turn down highly recommended dishes like the Wang Prawn Toast, followed by the Smoked Crispy Skin Duck and Wang’s Special Kung Pao Potatoes and Smoky Hongyou Eggplant. 

Want to dine in style like Mr Bond? Whether you’re after a romantic date night (and yes, your favourite fury child is welcome, the outside setting is totally dog-friendly) or have gathered 4+ mates to take advantage of the $35pp banquet menu (hello dumpling nights with the work fam), rest assured, you’ll have a memorable experience at Uncle Wang’s.
