Independent, proud and a little bit fancy – Prahran delights with its mix of boho charm, an innovative foodie scene and high street fashion.

Market fresh

Technically in South Yarra, Prahran Market is Australia's oldest food market and the perfect place to satisfy your food obsession. Fill your basket with fresh produce, fine cheeses, smallgoods, organic meats, seafood, spices and even fresh flowers. It's all here. Graze your way through and swap recipes with local characters.

Vintage vibes

Make a beeline for Greville Street, the spiritual hub of Prahran. While there may be less kitsch than there once was, the street retains its unique appeal. Pick up a coffee and wander past vintage stores, breezy cafes, gallery spaces and outposts of local designers.

Continue your collector's journey at Chapel Street Bazaar, where you can fossick through stalls packed with retro homewares, vintage clothes and other 'must-haves'.

Design in mind

In the mood for something new? Stroll down Chapel Street and take your pick from countless boutiques and fashion outlets.

The beat goes on

There's joy for vinyl lovers here, with Bounce Audio, Profile Music and perennial favourite Greville Records all keeping the music alive. Shop around and find everything from folk, rock and indie to hip-hop, Afro beat, house and electro.

Fine flavours

Recharge with brunch and a brew at local cafes Middletown or Oscar Cooper – both offer compelling reasons to haul yourself out of bed on the weekend. Fourth Chapter beckons with its verdant, sunny interiors. Pick up pastries and coffee at Morning Market and Market Lane Coffee.

Let White Oaks Saloon Bar take care of sundowners and sliders. Take things up a notch with dinner at L'Hotel Gitan – part of the Jacques Reymond culinary empire – or steak frites at Parisian-centric Entrecôte. For happy imbibing, make your way to themed cocktail bar Pawn and Co.

Why go home when there's plenty of night left? Head to Revolver Upstairs or OneSixOne for live music, dancing and DJs.
