Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.

This happening little suburb has it all!
Directly north of the city (tram or walk), explore Brunswick St & surrounds to enjoy a drink, a meal, a live band, nightlife, shopping & people watching.
Also check out the Edinburgh gardens in Nth Fitzroy for skaters & the hip picnic set.
Honestly, I could spend hours here. It’s great seeing contemporary photography artists been given the support to show their works at a large professional space.
I have also really appreciated seeing diversity in artists being celebrated at CCP. This gallery has introduced me to some of my favourite indigenous female photographers and for that I will be forever grateful.
The Gallery has been a constant in Brunswick Street for decades offering an eclectic range of prints at reasonable prices. Its well worth a browse through the collection on offer which covers both Australian and overseas artists. Very helpful staff have been a feature of the gallery for many years.
The Fitzroy Town Hall is one of my favourites of the Melbourne Towns Hall from the 1870-80s. While they all seemed to take a classical view of things, the Fitzroy was not bleached white and it had triangular features at the top and was in three sections, a central one and two wings. It has been a while since I...
I won some money on the Cup and took my children out to dinner to this charming restaurant. Staff were lovely and all but one was bilingual so you can practice your French if you want to. Great atmosphere. There was only space outside which made me a little apprehensive as it was not a warm night, but the heaters...
Meet up with friends for a late breakie/ lunch at Grub. Our friends love this place, so was interested to taste the food. The coffee was good and at the right temperature for my cast iron gullet. The menu was limited but the choices range across a variety of foods. I had the coconut chicken salad, which was really nice....

Naked for Satan is a Melbourne favorite of ours. We have visited several times when we come to Melbourne and it never disappoints. Book a table for the inside rooftop dining and the menu is great. It is a tapas style menu, everything $11 and the quality of the food is outstanding. Service was also first class. Add to this...
This restored Fitzroy pub retains the feel of an old suburban pub with some contemporary comforts. The beer garden is well set up to watch sporting events. A good selection of beers and tasty small meals available all day.
