Lokal + Co

West End

Lokal + Co is an inviting oasis of Nordic cool tucked away in a West End side street, and the only place in Brisbane to offer mod Norwegian-inspired cuisine.

Both the menu and decor in this eatery and bar are a seamless fusion of Norway and Oz, with owners Helge from Norway and Corey a local Brisbane lad bringing the best of both countries to the table.

Occupying one half of a Queenslander, Lokal + Co features a split level front yard with al fresco seating on astroturf level or on timber decking while inside is a spacious Scandinavian-chic dining area.
