Melbourne's laneway HQ, Flinders Lane is a hotspot for award-winning fine diners and boutique bars, contemporary galleries and local fashion labels.

Food and wine

Flinders Lane is one of the city's best eat streets, with the city's highest concentration of award-winning fine diners and popular eateries. Don't miss Cumulus Inc., Supernormal, Coda, Chin Chin, Cecconi's and Kenzan. 

For cocktails, seek out the secret entrance to Trinket, sneak down Malthouse Lane to Eau de Vie, or nip below Chin Chin on Higson Lane to Go Go Bar. Bean hunters, grab your coffee from Dukes at Ross House.

For more cafes, bars and boutiques, turn into Centre Place and Degraves Street.

Rest weary laneway legs at the City Library and neighbouring cafe Journal, or stop for the night at the laneway hotel with the coolest pool, the Adelphi.

Fashion, art and design

Find your best new Melbourne black at local labels Alpha60 and Et Al. Up your sartorial game at Masons, or accessorise with jewellery from contemporary gallery e.g. et al.

Check out the latest exhibitions at contemporary galleries Anna Schwartz Gallery and Flinders Lane Gallery, both Flinders Lane stalwarts since the 1980s. Catch a show at not-for-profit theatre and gallery Fortyfivedownstairs, or duck into Watson Place to explore the retail space and gallery at Craft Victoria.

And look around as you wander: the main artery of the city's laneway precinct, Flinders Lane is a fabulous starting point for street art expeditions. Make time to peruse Duckboard Place, ACDC Lane and famous Hosier Lane.
