Chapel Street attracts an interesting assortment of characters. Just like a bag of Allen’s party mix, some you’ll want to gobble up & some you’ll just like the look of. Then there are those that you’ll want to leave untouched at the bottom of the pack. Hey you may not love em’ all, but it’s still a party!
Abacus Bar and Kitchen Chapel Street

Join the Chapel Street party & get your people watching on. Here’s a cheeky little list of the best spots & hangouts to check out the talent, or simply watch the characters of Chapel Street pass you by.

1. Abacus Bar & Kitchen

The Abacus Bench Seats were made for street gazing and the South Yarra post code means one thing. Fashion. Get a coffee in your hand & let the runway commence! 

2. The Jam Factory

Grab a Boost juice on a Saturday afternoon and take a seat on the benches outside of the Jam Factory. From yuppie doggy parents to pre-teens lusting over the latest Topshop fashions, you’ll get the people watching goods from this sun drenched spot.

3. Jane Doe Bar

Jane Doe bar in Windsor has just the right setup to watch Chapel pass by. Plush arm chairs facing the street & happy hour that stretches through the afternoon. Bring cash, a bestie and sip on $5 wine as you play a personal game of Fashion Police.  

4. Windsor Al Fresco Dining

Street side dining is everything. It’s like a dinner & show that changes daily. Unscripted, a little unorthodox and completely entertaining. Make it a Friday night for the R-Rated performance.  

5. Sunday Morning Brunch

If you’ve ever pulled a Hail Mary and got a coveted table during peak brunch hour, you’ll know where the people watching magic happens. The waiting line. The bickering couples, the impatient yogis and the fashionistas slowly melting in the sunshine(or rain, cue Melbourne). Enjoy your smashed avo in peak people watching territory.
