Melbourne: a city that prides itself on laneway culture.
Many a night we Melbournians have hit the pavement of Melbourne’s CBD looking for that hidden hot spot yet to yield to the tried and true venues that we know…
Let [HPSS] give all little insight into our top 5 laneway bars in Melbourne CBD and hopefully we can introduce you to your next social hotspot.
Keep in mind these venues will allow you to book a section or reserve a space, so when you’re about to book another night out hit these guys up!
The Bottom End – 579 Little Collins, Melbourne CBD
This pub-disco-diner is relatively new to the Melbourne bar scene. A mix between a 50’s dinner and a medieval banquet space this is truly one of those unique Melbourne Bars. We highly recommend hitting up The Bottom End on a Wednesday for $4 all day Taco’s.. Yum!
Cabinet Bar – 11 Rainbow Alley, Melbourne CBD
Unless you know where this venue is there’s no way of stumbling past its laneway door. So very hidden yet the balcony overlooks Swanston St! [HPSS] recommends getting there early as it’s not the biggest of venues and there will be some competition for seating.. but once seated, you’ll find it hard to leave.
Chi Lounge – 195 Little Bourke St, Melbourne CBD
In the heart of China Town stands what we think is the BEST KARAOKE VENUES in Melbourne. Downstairs, a really cool bar… Upstairs, individual karaoke rooms available for hire to belt out your best rendition of Bon Jovi’s LIIIVING OON A PRAAAAYER!
Loop – 23 Meyers Place, Melbourne CBD
Super cool venue.. Hidden right in the middle of Meyers Place Loop is one of those Melbourne Bars that once you’ve been you’ll find yourself back there very soon. The undercover smoking area makes it a great place to hang out in during Melbourne’s cold rainy nights.
Lustre Bar – Level 1/252 Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD
This relatively new bar in Melbourne has recently been introduced to [HPSS]. In all seriousness if you are looking for a great DATE VENUE in Melbourne, look no further. It’s off the beaten track, it’s ridiculously romantic and it’s truly unique… [HPSS] could not recommend Lustre Bar enough.
