Overview

Late night dining

When there's no time to eat before the show and no going home on an empty stomach, late-night options in Melbourne range from fried-food havens to fine dining excellence.

Fast and fried

If you've stumbled out of a bar at closing time, a fuss-free fast feast is never far away in the city and fringe suburbs.

In the CBD you can run the gauntlet of fast-food outlets near Flinders Street station for pizza by the slice and all things fried, trawl Chinatown for late-night noodles, or stop in at Stalactites, China Bar or Chillipadi for an all-night bite. 

Southside, night owls gather at St Kilda's Leo's Spaghetti Bar, Monroe's and Topolino's pizza joint in Fitzroy Street, and at Chappelli's on Chapel Street.

Northside, join the crowds at kebab shops on Brunswick Street, Danny's Burgers on St George's Road, Cafe Romantica on Lygon Street, or the Town Hall Kebab van on Sydney Road.

Late night restaurants and bars

Find your way to late-night restaurants populated by folk in the know: hospitality staff. These restaurants and bars keep their kitchens open late and are usually packed with chefs and bartenders, along with theatre goers and people who just lose track of time. Some offer a limited late-night menu, others offer the whole deal. 

Night owls, find your feast.
