We’ve got the lowdown on the some of the best bars to check out in Chapel Street Precinct Melbourne. Visitors come for the shopping, but they always stay for the cocktails!

Here’s some of our favourite bars in Chapel Street Precinct.

With a sleek monochrome design, one-of-a-kind drinks and Tapas style menu, the new cocktail bar Punk Carla has opened on Chapel St, Windsor. Designed with the after-work and pre-dinner drinks crowd in mind, the 170 person venue, which has been completely refurbished as well as extended, features a large outdoor seating area opening up onto Windsor communal carpark. The venue owners took their inspiration from a woman they met many years ago on a wild night out during the European summer. “She was classy, edgy, fun, slightly mysterious, and she said her name was ‘Punk Carla’,” they said, “Whether she was telling us the truth, we will never know but it stuck with us.”

After dinner at Hawker Hall, stroll down to Borsch, Vodka & Tears for a nightcap. With over 100 vodkas, there’s something for everyone! Founded by a trio of Polish expats, it’s only right that they offer an assortment of Polish cuisine.

173 Chapel St, Windsor

This one’s a keeper for when it’s time to impress a first date. Like your Mama once said, the way to the heart is through their…. stomach. Ines is the name of a beautiful little lady who lives in Asti, Northern Italy. She is the inspiration behind Ines Wine Bar, whose focus is high quality ingredients and exceptional service.

105 Chapel St, Windsor (Upstairs)

The name on everybody’s lips at the moment is Mr Miyagi. A new take on traditional Japanese food – with an inspired menu featuring gems like the famous Nori Taco – Mr Miyagi will leave you wanting more. Waiting for a table has never been more fun, with a vibrant atmosphere and impressive bar setting at the back of the restaurant. Certainly what #MRMSAYS goes…

99 Chapel St, Windsor

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.

216 High St, Windsor

Look for the American sandwiches and fries shop and enter the fridge… seriously. Jungle Boy is a cool bar that’ll be sure to win you brownie points if you’re taking mates or a date. Start your night off right with their great drinks and cosy atmosphere (or for a late night kick on session!)!

96 Chapel St, Windsor
