Stretching 2km from Toorak Road to Dandenong Road through the southeast suburbs of South Yarra and Prahran, Chapel Street is Melbourne's mecca for shopping, dining and nightlife. The renowned destination offers the ultimate high street experience and is the ideal way to discover a plethora of boutique finds, vibrant culture, diverse dining and eclectic architecture.
The Chapel Street Precinct takes in seven distinct neighbourhoods each with its own flavour and feel. The Windsor Quarter from Dandenong Road to High Street is the place to uncover vintage treasures and enjoy relaxed drinking holes. The Prahran sector encompasses the edgy offerings on Greville Street, the diversity of Commercial Road and the shopping centre hub of Prahran Central up to Malvern Road. Chapel Street Bazaar at 217-223 is a must-see destination within itself with a virtual treasure trove of vintage finds in a retro arcade where you could literally lose hours and yourself! Greville Village is the mini hotspot to take your time among myriad cafes, bars and boutiques and the serene Grattan Gardens, and gourmands will adore the fresh produce at historic Prahran Market as well as dining options from dumplings to indulgent pastries on Commercial Road.
Heading to the South Yarra neighbourhood of Chapel Street, visitors will encounter a mix of the old and the new through designer boutiques, lunching ladies and the iconic Jam Factory shopping and entertainment centre. Yarra Lane, near South Yarra train station, is like stumbling upon one of the CBD's beloved laneways in a suburban setting offering a haven for foodies, edgy fashion and luxe accommodation options. At night, you'll find everything from burlesque shows and speakeasies to cocktail bars and dance clubs along Chapel Street.
The best way to check out all the Chapel Street retail and entertainment action is from Prahran Station to access Greville Street on your way to Chapel Street – a five-minute direct walk, or from South Yarra Station – also a five-minute walk. Trams 78 and 79 also travel the length of Chapel Street.
