Ever waned to just conclave yourself into a super hipster-geek-chic cocoon – Pulled tightly in your genius as the gold foil seal of a Nescafé jar? Weave yourself into position with a good coffee, laptop and turn into the grub-like Creativity Juice churner that you know that you really are? Well, People of Brisbane – you’re in luck – welcome to the workspace you’ve been craving: The Rabbit Hole Ideation Cafe.
Plunked right next to The End (where Trash Video used to sit), The Rabbit Hole blends seamlessly in with the alternative and creative Westend vibe like a fish to water. When I arrived unsuspectingly the other week, I wasn’t sure what to expect – and was happily given a mini-tour of the locale by the resident barista, Nick (who makes a right dandy cup, by the way).
Bravely embracing a name that is so long it makes people from the Eastern Bloc believe they’ve found their long-lost cousins, The Rabbit Hole Ideation Cafe boasts more than a name that is over five syllables. For all those group-worker types, they can provide you with boardroom space. For the loner-esque creatives, you can dibs a desk for a solid four hours of intense geeking. And, if you’re like me – you’ll bundle yourself into a ball on the cushion-laden sofa and make kissy faces with the thuggishly gargoyled visage of Willem Dafoe.
The cafe holds in it’s hands broad opening hours – starting up at the wee hour of 7AM and cruising into the night. Keep in mind that these hours are fairly flexible – depending on pre-existing event bookings. It’s always good to call ahead, especially if you’re planning to plod in for a few hours just in case your favourite desk has been bagged by another keen cat. I’ve ninja’d some of the booking details from their website and posted them below – and they should be able to give you hand if you get a little bewildered with the situation. The friendly staff are more than eager to lend a hand and help you get your creative on.
Combining our greatest loves: crazy ideas, yummy coffee & passionate people.

With beans roasted locally by the famed Tim Adams and a menu that’s currently spawning, the Rabbit Hole Ideation Café is bound to be a hit, if not, a great place to get your nerd on. Which, admittedly, is my definition of being A Hit.
