Bourke St, Melbourne

Highly recommended

You could visit Meyer’s Place several times and have a completely different experience; very few laneways in Melbourne can pack in this many reputable venues.

Wander down to find San Telmo, an Argentian steak house with an authentic parrilla charcoal grill. Then grab drinks at Lily Blacks, an art deco cocktail bar serving classic concoctions.

Maybe try Loop Bar, with their two-level rooftop bar. Or grab a slice of New York from Pizza Pizza Pizza – then ask to enter their secret cocktail bar.

Make sure to look up and admire the vertical garden hanging off the side of Loop Bar; Meyer’s Place was one of the first candidates for the council’s ‘Green Laneway’ project.
