Need a little #inspo for single life on Chapel Street? This is how you do it!
Single ladies do it best, so it would be hella rude to look past Windsor’s Tokyo Tina. Single since way back, Tina has mastered the combined art of ramen, cocktails and karaoke. Bring along a hoard of single friends and raise a toast to your freedom, in between Beyonce hits of course!
Is there any better way to celebrate single than with a pretty glass of frosé?! I thought not! Speakeasy Kitchen and Bar in Prahran have their frosé game on point & a beer garden that backs onto a street art filled alley… how VERY Melbourne! Get your single backside there for glasses of pink sunshine & flirty banter.
The magician known as Peter Alexander has found a way to blend comfort, style and FOMO into one puppy covered package… and I ain’t mad at it! Say goodbye to string laden lingerie and rug up in a pair of soft & fluffy PA jarmies. Stop in at Ben & Jezza’s on the way home and you have a seriously good Netflix binge night on your cards.
The new kid on Chapel Street has everyone talking & lusting over the exclusive window seats! Perfect for a date for one, take a perch seat with a view & order an insanely good padre coffee. For an extra special pick me up, spot the bickering couples and be damn glad that it’s not you!
Being single has major benefits, but few come close to keeping your Aesop haul all to yourself. Having to share your Aesop Coriander Seed Body Cleanser is comparable to sharing a husband with a sister wife. Deeply disturbing and likely to end in homicide – don’t even go there.
Single life can hit you right in the feels & sometimes all you need is a cuddle or a belly to rub… If you haven’t got a belly in need, Grattan Gardens in Prahran is the ultimate puppy stalking territory. Frequented by pooches of all descriptions, a lurk from Izett to Greville Street is BOUND to bark up the goods, without the commitment.
From puppy stalking to a Humming Puppy, keep your toosh tight and your mind clear with Prahran’s premier yoga studio. Seriously lush, the studio is more day spa than fitness centre and worth every single penny.
Catching a movie has long been portrayed as a group activity & it’s time for change my single friends! Let’s discuss! PROS: No snack sharing; it’s ALWAYS your turn to choose the film; no creepo handholding; & did I mention no one else’s mits would be in your popcorn?! Plus if you happen to wander into Fifty Shades Darker on VDay, there’ll be no witnesses.
Hair washing is a chore you don’t need in your life. As a wise woman once said “Ain’t nobody got time for that” so let the babes at Lady Marmalade Pop Dry look after it for you! Besides, you’ve got a night of single frollicking to do, so sit back, get your blow wave and leave looking fierce & feeling damn good about your #singlelife.
If you’re single & ready to get down, dirty & mingle there is nowhere better than The Emerson. With views of the city (& Melbourne’s elite) it’s exactly the right place to dance away the night or nab yourself a footballer. Go on, grab your besties and join the line of ridiculously good looking twenty somethings waiting to get in.
Say ‘hello’ to sanitiser stations and single-use menus. From June 1, we will join the rest of Australia by being able to eat & drink inside our famous restaurants, cafes & pubs again (hooray)! See if your local fave is reopening for in-house dining!
Bye-bye hairy legs and nasty nails … The world of lash extensions, hair removal, tattoos, tanning and plucking and plumping is back June 1.
Many Chapel Street Precinct businesses are getting savvy with their takeaway offerings to ensure you can still enjoy your fave dishes safely while, importantly, helping staff stay employed and their business (livelihood) stay afloat. Watch and learn some creative ways to call and collect your food!
