On weeknights it's a suave low-key cocktail lounge. On weekends it heaves. Don’t let the modern furniture and feel mislead you, the cocktails at Black Pearl Bar are authentic and traditional. The juxtaposition between the drinks that are served in lavish vintage glassware, the 1970s and 80s pop-rock playlist, and the smooth, straightforward interior design is spectacularly pulled off. It’s a chaotic mess of ideas that can be accepted only in Fitzroy. Feel free to order off the menu. Or if you’d like to challenge your bartender with the most left-of-field drink that tickles your interest, you’re sure to be impressed.

Polly Bar is Fitzroy’s classic sombre cocktail and cigar lounge. Class is at the forefront of this cool Victorian-style bar, with its elegant deep-red interior, chandeliers, espresso Martinis and bartenders in crisp, dashing attire. You’ll feel like you’ve been taken back to the era of The Great Gatsby as you sip on one of the great, time-honored classic cocktails that are given only the greatest level of respect. Or perhaps try one of the original inventions by the team of exceptionally creative bartenders.

Parks & Nature
Melbourne's iconic Royal Botanic Gardens is a two minute walk from studio parkSYde, where you can discover rare and beautiful plants, breathtaking landscapes and iconic buildings. If you're feeling particularly energetic, the 'Tan Track' is a 3.8km track around King's Domain and the Royal Botanic Gardens...a favourite for walkers, joggers and runners alike. Known locally as the 'Tan', the track passes the Shrine of Remembrance and snakes alongside the Yarra River, before offering the perfect opportunity for a hill sprint up Anderson Street.

This is Melbourne's best zoo! See our native animals in their natural habitat - walk next to the dingos as their carers walk them around the park; experience the thrills of the Birds of Prey show and feel a hawk's feathers brush the top of your head as it swoops over you!

Joe Grbac creates magic, blending classical technique with local produce to create dishes that are seriously good value – $65 for three courses? We’ll take that any day of the week. The menu changes regularly, but could include dishes like roast chicken consommé with crispy breast. Head upstairs to Thomas Olive for pre-dinner cocktails.

From porchetta rolls to roasted beetroot salad, this huge café and provedore is a go-to for lunch. There’s usually a line for take-out, but there’s also an extensive cafe space, where the French rotisserie does its duty.

Smith Street is a favourite for lovers of Japanese food, and this izakaya is a crowd pleaser. Order loads of dishes to share: the excellent pork gyoza, tuna sashimi salad and double-cooked pork belly with yuzu sauce. If the restaurant’s full, head to cosy Peko Peko or rock ’n’ roll-vibed Teriyaki Anarchy Sake.

This pumping bar and eatery has heaps of personality and tonnes to enjoy from Daniel Wilson’s kitchen. Don’t leave without tucking into the jalapeno and cheddar croquettes (there’d be a riot if they were removed from the menu), and the Korean pork ribs with spicy slaw are always a favourite.

The sign says it all: ‘Ramen, bun & pie’. That’s what you get at this simple shopfront, with its long communal table and Stephen Baker mural. Start with a bun (brisket and kimchi gets the thumbs-up) before moving on to cosseting noodle soup served with pork belly, brisket, barbecue chicken or tofu. The pie changes daily, but cross your fingers for banana cream.

There’s something a little bit sexy about this room, with its exposed bricks, gleaming bar and low lighting. The premise is simple: choose your meatballs (pork, beef, chicken, fish or veg), add a sauce then something for them to sit on, including polenta or house-made pasta.

EASY TIGER! Cracking Thai dishes are the big attraction at this mod eatery. Start with some betel leaves topped with tea-smoked scallop and fresh coconut before moving on to sour orange fish curry and twice-cooked pork ribs with tomato and coconut relish. The wine list, mainly comprised of interesting aromatic styles from local vineyards, is worth a look, too.

Given its name, you might not expect to get good tapas at this refurbished local with a sunny courtyard. All the traditional favourites are here – garlic and chilli prawns, ham croquettes, piquillo peppers stuffed with seafood – as well as some good paella and steak and fish off the grill.

HABITAT This beautiful space features greenery and moths (in the light-box art); duck out the back though, and you’ll find a sunny courtyard, one of Smith Street’s best-kept secrets. There are some excellent snacks to be had, from buffalo wings to gourmet toasties, but the real drawcard is the cocktail list. There are twists on classics – choc-mint julep, anyone? – and an interesting selection of old-fashioneds and martinis. Chin chin.

Sightseeing
St Paul's Anglican Cathedral is a beautiful, historic building, situated in the centre of the City of Melbourne, Australia. It is a place of worship and prayer. St Paul's is built on the site where the first public Christian services in Melbourne were led by Dr Alexander Thomson in 1836. Soon afterwards a small wooden chapel was built elsewhere, and the area became a corn market until 1848, when it was made available for the building of the bluestone St Paul's Parish Church. Consecrated in 1852, this Church was used until 1885, when it was demolished to make way for the present Cathedral.
