I fuckin’ love Melbourne’s street-art scene… the coffee, the beer, the cool bars… of which this beautiful city has plenty of all in abundance.
So my gift to all you lovers out there is this perfect little street-art walk that I did last Friday at random.
After my 1st week in 2.5 years working from the home office, I wrap up work for the day at 3pm, grab my Canon DSLR & stroll to Degraves St for a double shot latte at my favourite little joint down there, Cafe Andiamo.
From there, I wander through the backstreets of Melbourne CBD via Centre Pl, through Block Arcade and Union Ln (which almost always has artists at work or fresh paint) to Bourke St Mall, then head up Bourke St cutting left through Brien Ln to Lt Bourke St and into Croft Alley (never fear – there’s a map & pics below).
If it’s open, then I highly recommend dropping into The Croft Institute at the very end of Croft Alley for a cheeky cocktail to freshen up & chill.
The final leg of the journey involves walking down Lt Bourke St to Tattersalls Ln and along Tattersall Ln to one of my favourite bars in Melbourne, Section 8.
Rain, hail or shine, Section 8 is a wicked bar with killer tunes, open 7 days a week (both day & night), and the bar itself and the alley surrounds is alive with a whole swag of street-art by amazing artists, including a beautiful lady on the bricks above Section 8, by one of my favourite artists, Rone.
Tell ’em Dan sent you… And they’ll stare at you blankly 😃
But this is just a taste of what Melbourne has to offer… Enjoy! And feel free to share the love! ❤️🍻
