Melbourne's laneway HQ, Flinders Lane is a mecca for award-winning fine diners and boutique bars, contemporary galleries and local fashion labels.

Food and wine

It's one of the city's best eat streets, with the CBD's highest concentration of award-winning fine diners and popular eateries. Don't miss Cumulus Inc., Supernormal, Coda, Chin Chin, Ezard, Cecconi's and Kenzan. 

For cocktails, seek out the secret entrances Hihou and Trinket, sneak down Malthouse Lane to Eau de Vie, or Higson Lane to GoGo.  Bean hunters, grab your coffee from Dukes at Ross House.

For more cafes, bars and boutiques, turn into Centre Place and Degraves Street.

Rest weary laneway legs at the City Library and neighbouring cafe Journal, or stop for the night at the laneway hotel with the coolest pool, the Adelphi.

Fashion, art and design

Find your best new Melbourne black at local labels Alpha60 and et al, or up your sartorial game at Incu and Masons. Accessorise at Christine and contemporary jewellery gallery e.g. et al.

Check out the latest exhibitions at contemporary galleries Anna Schwarz Gallery and Flinders Lane Gallery, both Flinders Lane stalwarts since the 1980s. Catch a show at not-for-profit theatre and gallery fortyfivedownstairs, or duck into Watson Place to explore the retail space and gallery at Craft.

And look around as you wander: the main artery of the CBD's laneway precinct, Flinders Lane is a fabulous starting point for street art expeditions. Make time for Duckboard Place, ACDC Lane and, of course, Hosier Lane.
