Jump ahead of the game and get to know North Melbourne's hottest properties before the word gets out about the innovative arts, edgy bars and cafes and welcoming community.
Victorian verandas and an artistic hub
Sit under the Victorian verandas around Errol Street for convivial brunches and afternoon drinks. Try Auction Rooms, Agraba, Rubicon, Rrose, Sosta and Grigons & Orr Corner Store. For a feast, make a booking at the Courthouse or Sosta Cucina, and for a summery courtyard tipple, vie for a spot out back at the Town Hall Hotel.
Follow the tick-tock of the grand clock to the former North Melbourne Town Hall, now known as Arts House, a thriving performing arts space and hub for the Melbourne Fringe Festival along with the nearby Meat Market. Explore the changing exhibitions at Gallerysmith.
Celebrate at the Spring Fling
Let your hair down at the Spring Fling Festival, the annual North and West Melbourne community celebration or head to the monthly North Melbourne Market at the Lithuanian Club for vintage and designer finds.
