Smith & Gertrude streets trail

Get the lay of the land from Easey's rooftop while munching on a Melbourne Madness burger (there's potato cake and dim sim within). Swoop down to Bar Liberty for an interesting wine or the Rochester Hotel for beer and a game of pool. Double back and head south on Smith Street, past contemporary Lupo, and with a short (daytime) detour to Proud Mary. Back on Smith Street, pop your head in to the absurdly colourful Hotel Jesus (Mexican taqueria) and creative, spirited IDES. Turn right at Gertrude Street and consider Belles Hot Chicken (fried and spicy chook, downstairs) and The Everleigh (exceptionally polished cocktail bar, upstairs) before finishing at classy wine bar Marion. 3km
