Just before The Olsen, off Chapel Street is a street that’s often overlooked. From the outside, it may not look like much. But once you’ve finally checked it out, you’ll kick yourself for not doing so sooner! If you’re not yet convinced, here’s our pick on what to do and where to go on Daly Street!

The bar & restaurant below the Olsen is an absolute gem! Parked on the corner of Chapel and Daly Streets, Spoonbill is the perfect spot to catch up with friends, or take the lover for date night. The menu changes with the seasons so there’s always something new on offer, but our favourite thing about Spoonbill is the people watching from the street site tables. Grab yourself a glass of wine and watch Chapel Street roll by. Perfection.

The other half to Zumbo Patisserie is Zumbo Cafe, with the entrance on Daly Street! It’s the home of neon lights, sugar delights and a nice sit down cuppa. Plus, the crew there who peddle the sweet baked goods are a god damned pleasure. We’d just pop in for a chat if we could, but let’s be honest, we wouldn’t be able to resist a taste of something sweet!

We wanted to unearth the precinct’s most memorable and unique burgers for the ultimate Chapel Precinct burger crawl. Warning: salivation guaranteed.
Secondary cuts of meat are those working muscles which are more flavoursome and textural, but need a little more time and care to polish off the edges, but by doing so you are richly rewarded.
I braved my first Pole Dancing class at Pole Divas Prahran and I was really (dare I say it?) feeling myself. Prepared to feel uncomfortable, thankfully, my awesome older sister was eager (you can see why she’s the oldest) to join me for our first experience with the pole.
