Capture the independent spirit of Prahran and Windsor. Journey down Chapel Street into a treasure-trove of vintage finds, eclectic eateries and boutiques.

Market fresh

Prahran Market is Australia's oldest food market and it's a fabulous place to satisfy your food obsession. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fine cheeses and smallgoods, organic and free range meats, fresh seafood, spices and pantry staples, pastries and fresh flowers, are all here and waiting for you. Come to graze, fill your basket and swap recipes with local characters. 

Vintage vibes

Make a beeline for Greville Street, the spiritual hub of Prahran. While less kitsch than it once was the street retains a unique vibrancy thanks to a scattering of vintage stores, an independent record shop, edgy cafes, gallery spaces and outposts of local designers.

Fossick through stalls packed with retro homewares, vintage clothes and collectables at Chapel Street Bazaar.

Namely restaurants

Explore the area's dining scene and you're bound to find a place with your name on it. Siblings Tokyo Tina, Saigon Sally and Hanoi Hannah are the name of the game for contemporary Asian, along with Charlie Dumpling and Hawker Hall.

L'Hotel Gitan adds a little ooh la la to the scene, while Fonda and Huxtaburger are familiar favourites. Keep Woodland House on file for special occasions.

Brunchers and lunchers, Spoonful, Middletown and Oscar Cooper are three good reasons to haul yourself out of bed on the weekend.

Raising the bar

Wish for year-round summer evenings from your vantage point in the beer garden cabanas from the Windsor Castle, or go for speakeasy style and single malts at Woods of Windsor. Sop up the vodka with scrumptious sausages and dumplings at Borsch, Vodka & Tears.

Keep the night going with a show or a dance at Revolver Upstairs, OneSixOne or Boutique.
