Chapel Street is an ultimate in world-class fashion, beauty, business services, bubbles and bites! So can I get a ‘hell yeah!’? ‘Cause we’ve got some new friends in town and boy are they delivering the goods.
What’s new to Chapel Street you ask? …
A fab new bar/bottle-o has landed on the Windsor end of Chapel Street. Named after the bird who, if followed in the desert, will lead you to the nearest watering hole. Galah is championing local produce and low intervention natural wines.
Grab a small batch bottle from the shelves, scurry upstairs and take a sip (or ten) in a high-ceiling warehouse setting. This joint used to be a panel beater’s storage space, but you’d never guess looking at the leather and velvet upholstered booths or the sultry cocktail menu. Sip on an Aussie inspired aperitif – maybe the Outback Sheila (finger lime and saltbush margarita) – then tuck into a cheese platter followed by kangaroo loin for something larger. Plus, there’s resident DJs on the one’s and two’s throughout the week. Get on it guys.

The beautiful heritage Prahran Post Office building now houses a 1940’s New York style steakhouse. Enjoy red carpet treatment while you sip on craft beers or pair their extensive range of whisky and wine with a fillet that just melts in your mouth. Graze from shared dishes with premium cold meats, or nibble on pork croquettes or confit lamb ribs. Sweet tooth? Indulge in their dark chocolate mousse with caramelized hazelnuts, truly the best ending to the best steak. There’s also various menu items vegetarian and pescartarian friendly and a cocktail list to boot. Bottomless brunch is from 12 to 3 pm and will only set you back $49.
With a name that pays homage to Greville Street’s rocking 1970’s scene, in particular, AC/DC (Angus & Bon refers to the band’s guitarist, Angus Young, and singer Bon Scott), these guys are ticking all the right boxes!

Stroll into what looks like a cosy, well-lit cafe and follow the clues – the ‘Staff Only’ sign or the neon blue Japanese traffic light – as you traverse into the shadows of a tiny speakeasy bar. This Prohibition-themed secret is full of mystery. No official drinks menu. Instead, ‘Pick your Promise’ cards. Choose from ‘adventurous’, ‘careful’ or ‘conservative’ and your new bartender friend will curate a drink just for you. This sounds promising.
