With an abundance of food, style, entertainment and art, Chapel Street is the go to place in Melbourne to get a good taste of the Melbourne lifestyle. Linking the neighbourhoods of South Yarra, Prahran and Windsor, Chapel Street is the urban/chic centre of it all. Visitors on a local, regional, interstate and international level flock to Chapel to partake in one of Australia’s most distinctive areas. The streets are lined with high end designer retail shops, small independent cafes, rooftop bars and everything in between.

Chapel street began in the early 19 century and has had a constant evolution of growth to where we are today. With new restaurants and cafes opening on a weekly basis, there is always somewhere new to venture out to on the weekend. Although there are some iffy restaurants and bars in the area, there are a few diamonds in the rough which are worth a visit.

Or on the lower end of the spectrum are Topshop, Aldo and Zomp Shoes. For a real Melbourne feel, a must do is visit one of the many vintage boutiques in the area.
