Melbourne’s narrow streets and laneways give the city’s creative set free reign to unleash their talents. From hole-in-the-wall cafes and bars to colourful street art, or artfully plated meals, there’s always something to amuse and delight.
Celestial Avenue: When it comes to narrow streetscapes, Celestial lane packs a big punch as the very spot where the first Chinese lodging houses were built in the mid-19th Century. Fast forward to present times, and the city’s incredible Chinese heritage lives on thanks to the culinary delights of the Supper Inn Cantonese restaurant.
Caledonian Lane: Colourful, earthy, and artsy! Calendonian Lane is the birthplace of the international music festival, St Jerome’s Laneway, and a cultural must-do in these parts. Stroll down this laneway and you’ll be following in the footsteps of Aussie Indie Pop icons like Architecture in Helsinki and The Presets.
Hosier Lane: The raw beauty of this living street art gallery helped launch Melbourne’s urban artists on the global stage. If you’re short on time, this famous bluestone laneway houses Melbourne’s densest collection of spray-painted masterpieces.
