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

Market fresh

Prahran Market is Australia's oldest food market and the perfect place to satisfy your food obsession. Fresh produce, fine cheeses and smallgoods, organic meats, seafood, spices and even fresh flowers. It's all here. So graze, fill your basket 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 of the countless boutiques and fashion outlets. Bag one-of-a-kind items, signed prints and drawings at Signed and Numbered or check out the colourful fabrics and cuts at local fave Olga de Polga.

Table tops and bar stools

Recharge with brunch and a brew at local cafes Middletown or Oscar Cooper – both good reasons to haul yourself out of bed on the weekend. Fourth Chapter beckons with its verdant, sunny interiors.

Huxtaburger is in the 'hood for quick and happy sustenance before evening drinks at Pawn and Co., or a sundowner with sliders at the White Oaks Saloon Bar takes care of both. Take things up a notch with dinner at L'Hotel Gitan – part of the Jacques Reymond culinary empire.

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

The beat goes on

There's joy for vinyl fiends here too, with Bounce Audio, Profile Music, Licorice Pie 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.
