This is where to start if you're looking for something to eat or drink in Melbourne, day or night. A good variety of bars, clubs, restaurants, and take-out joints are interspersed throughout the CBD. Coffee culture is well-represented by forward-thinking cafes like The Hardware Société on Hardware Street, 65 Degrees on Exhibition Street, and Manchester Press on Rankins Lane. Chinese food is in delicious proliferation along Little Bourke Street (Chinatown) through outdoor operators and sit-down eateries, while steakhouses and other Australian staples are easy to find. As far as nightlife, there are an excellent couple of bars near the corner of Swanston and Lonsdale, while ultra-sophisticated lounges and clubs like Billboard and Silk Road are beacons of cool. If all else fails, take a stroll along Bourke Street and see what looks like fun.
