You won't go hungry in Richmond, whether it's from packing in the pies at the footy, brunching in a cosy cafe, fine dining in a hatted restaurant, Vietnamese treats or pizza slices after a gig.

Eat up

Tip your hat to the Good Food Guide champions adding fine culinary pedigree to the local dining scene: Minamishima, Anchovy and Noir.

Flirt with the south side of the river at Baby Pizza and Kong on Church Street. Head to Swan Street for Feast of Merit, Botherambo and Hanoi Hannah New Quarter. Embrace the hustle and bustle of traditional, fast and exceptional Vietnamese food on Victoria Street.

Cafes Pillar of Salt, Touchwood and Reunion and Co. ensure you're never far from a decent coffee.

Pubs and footy

Prop up the bar and soak up pre-footy atmosphere at renovated working class watering holes like the London Tavern, the Richmond Club Hotel, the Swan, the Great Britain and Prince Alfred Hotel. Then head to the 'G to cheer on your assigned or adopted Aussie Rules football team.

The arts end of Richmond

A drink with mates in Richmond goes down better to the sounds of live music. See international buzz bands, local stalwarts or heavyweights at the Corner Hotel.

Church Street is the place to go for designer furniture and objets d'art. Clear your calendar for time to stroll the galleries on Albert Street.

Shopping

You'll need all the sustenance you can get for the marathon shopping sprees at Bridge Road's major label factory outlets and seconds stores – get good deals at Gorman, Bonds, Kathmandu and Country Road. Also pay heed to the small boutiques popping up with small, selected offerings, like Swan Street's Royal Order of Nothing and Lily and the Weasel.
