Prahran offers the best of both worlds, always bustling, but by day its a haven for activewear-filled coffee and smoothie runs, and by night, the music is turned up a little as the dinner and party crowd hit the vast array of entertainment options available.
The fun atmosphere that Prahran offers is a testament to the sheer number of suave venues that line Chapel and High Streets.
Leading the charge for the nightclub scene with some of Melbourne’s most infamous venues. Head to Mount Erica, The Smith or Prahran’s new neighbour, Entrecote for an upscale, high-end dining experience. If you’re in the mood for a casual drink, there’s always Bar Bianco or the College Lawn.
Prahran is filled with all of the enjoyment of a vast urban hub, expect large supermarkets and convenience stores, but with the added bonus of a small-town feel, as friendly produce stores like Morning Market, Le Petit Marché and The Prahran Grocer, all allow you to buy your groceries with ease.
Nearby Greville Street means you can take your time and browse through the eclectic mix of neighbourhood shops and stellar cafes, like Oscar Cooper and St. Edmond’s Cafe.
Although healthy living is usually concerned with fitness, Prahran offers both performance centres with a bounty of fresh produce options and nutritious cafe for that desired, holistic healthy lifestyle. For your morning gym session, head to BFT Prahran, REVL Training or Fitstop. Following your gruelling session, have a cold-pressed juice at Greene Street Juice Co. or your favourite smoothie bowl at Acai Brothers.
