By day the ocean side suburb of St Kilda is known to be a bustling seaside playground, where locals and tourists come in droves to grab a piece of the beach lifestyle; but by night, the other side of St Kilda’s personality comes out to play. Hip, but without the hipsters, this neighbourhood comes alive at dusk when its historic pubs, live music venues and trendy wine ocean view wine and cocktail bars open their doors. Once the tourists have headed back into the city centre, St Kilda’s local vibe can really start to be felt as locals from all over the city heard into the neighbourhood to revel in its (in)famous pubs, listen to live music by up and coming as well as established artists and party long into the night!
What You'll Get
Join a like-minded local to discover the best of Melbourne’s nightlife, getting out of the city centre and exploring St Kilda, a beach neighbourhood with a colourful history and a serious party reputation. Packed with live music venues and historic pubs (whose reputations are certainly known by the locals!), you’ll quickly see why this is a favourite part of the city for live music lovers and revellers.
You could begin your experience in serious style, sipping a cocktail, a glass of Australian wine or a locally brewed craft beer at one of the area’s trendy beach bar where locals start their evening with sunset views over the ocean. As St Kilda really starts to come alive, hop from bar to bar with your local and get a taste of what the nights here are really like! With pubs dating back over 170 years, St Kilda’s watering holes certainly have a tale or two to tell. As well as historic venues with a traditional Aussie pub feel, the neighbourhood is also home to some of the coolest bars around, independently run venues which each have their own unique atmosphere and vibe. Stop by the hidden gems which are local favourites, like an opulent Victorian era inspired cocktail and tapas bar, a rustic craft beer pub that’s become a hipster hangout or a quirky bar and art gallery inspired by the works of St Kilda artist Katishe which has been decorated like an NYC apartment, bathtub included! The neighbourhood is also home to some of the most famous live music venues in the city, so check out what’s on at The Espy, the longest running music venue in the country, or The Prince Of Wales Hotel, a St Kilda icon whose band room has hosted thousands of artists over the years, and where you’ll always guaranteed a wild night!
