Dining and bar-hopping

An ever-increasing number of bars and restaurants makes Collingwood one of Melbourne's top dining and bar-hopping 'burbs. 

Serious food fans, try the six-course IDES experience or visit lauded vegan eatery Smith & Daughters. Burger aficionados, make tracks to Easey's. And for pizza fans, Rupert on Rupert has the answers. Culinary globetrotters can take flight for Japanese cafe fare at Cibi and classic Mexican at Hotel Jesus.

Bar hoppers, you're never far from a tipple. Check out the pubs or revel till all hours at Le Bon Ton. Hopsters, take your drinking boots to The Mill Brewery, Molly Rose, Stomping Ground brewery and beer hall or Fixation's tasting room, The Incubator.

Club caffeine, get your cup o' Joe from Proud Mary, Everyday Coffee or Aunty Peg's.

Musical nights

Don't let a night out in Collingwood end without seeing a band at The Tote, The Gasometer, Grace Darling or The Gem.

Arts and activity

Collingwood has long led the way when it comes to supporting artist initiatives and small galleries. Make sure you call into thriving Collingwood Yards, Lamington Drive and Backwoods Gallery. Serious art lovers, don't miss Australian Galleries.  

Shopping Collingwood style

In such creative company, naturally shopping in Collingwood is interesting. Move from local fashion style-makers to large factory outlets flanking Smith Street. Browse Japanese curios at Cibi; art and design books, trinkets and collectables at Happy Valley; or locally designed threads and coffee at The Social Studio.
