PRAHRAN

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

Possessing that elusive mix of grunge and glamour, Prahran is very much neighbouring South Yarra’s edgier younger sibling. Not only does it look the part, it delivers big on entertainment value. Packed to the brim with buzzing cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs, there’s no place for boredom in this vibrant inner-city community.

Lifestyle

Whether it’s catching a show at an independent theatre, clubbing until the early hours (or all hours if you so desire), or drinking and dining at one of the city’s hottest new venues, when it comes to revelry Prahran certainly doesn’t disappoint. This lively neighbourhood has the character and the stamina to keep you busy from day to night, to day again.

But rest assured it’s not all about debauchery. Prahran also offers a sophisticated dining scene and leafy residential backstreets. Between the shopping mecca of Chapel Street and the low-key cool of Greville Street with its record stores and boutiques, friendly Prahran still manages to possess a village-like feel. The shopping is first-rate, and vintage fans can look to the delightful Chapel Street Bazaar where they’re likely to unearth a treasure or two amongst the store’s baroque spoils. While chic cafés are plentiful the numerous design studios and art galleries are a nod to the area’s creative past. Iconic Prahran Market further cements the neighbourhood’s reputation as one of Melbourne’s premier foodie destinations.
