The Chapel Street Precinct is the home to Melbourne’s best dining & entertainment establishments, which of course means it’s THE place the LGBTIQ community like to spend most of their time! From Drag Queens driving down the street in convertibles at Christmas to exquisite burlesque dancers at the Provocare Winter Arts Festival, there’s no doubt Chapel Street is the place to be for all Melbourne Queens (or anyone with some style really)!

So grab your gay bestie & follow our guide to an awesome gay weekend on Chapel…

For a night of gay clubbing, it’s ESSENTIAL to have the right undergarments. Because let’s be honest, that’s what going to matter when you find a special somebody! Located just off Chapel on High Street, Daily Jocks have sizzling hot jocks, jockstraps & harnesses! It may sound wild, but it’s standard to strip down when walking into Poof Doof to take your obligatory photo, so why not accessorise?

169 High St, Prahran

Once you’ve made your purchases at Daily Jocks, walk across the street to Chapel Street Bazaar to complete your look! Think vintage leather jackets, lace up boots, funky glasses and feather bowers. Chapel Street Bazaar has everything you’ll need. Best of all, everything in store has been pre loved & is perfect for saving the dollars for shots later in the night. Plus, if the man of your dreams spills his vodka, lime & soda on you, you don’t need to worry about spending a fortune to dry clean it!

217 Chapel St, Prahran

Your outfit is now complete, so get stepping straight to Poof Doof! Sprawled across two levels you’ll find a dance floor of epic proportions on the ground floor (complete with rave music) & upstairs, a jam packed room playing your favourite R&B/Pop tunes! This is where you’ll spend your time & put that feather bower to work!

Abacus Bar and Kitchen Chapel Street

A good brunch is essential for a full recovery. Especially when you’re preparing for another day of debauchery & glitter. Abacus seems to be a magnet attracting all the 10’s of Chapel Street. So while eating your eggs & swigging back the Bloody Mary, you’ll get the added pleasure of enjoying the pretty people around you.

383 Chapel St, South Yarra

Walk off that brunch & by taking a stroll down to Windsor. The Railway Hotel is an award winning pub & an exquisite looking one at that. Boasting several dining experiences, the deck offers city views, ideal for a Sunday session, while downstairs you can enjoy a beverage & watch the footy with the locals.  If that hangover is still lingering, make sure you smash a bowl of their chip (they’re life changing) before moving on to the next location!

29 Chapel St, Windsor

Circus Bar Chapel Street

Circus is a place of party on a Friday & Saturday night, but everything comes in three & Sunday night is when the rooftop bar really comes alive. Yep, it’s play night! Circus Sundays boasts a rotating lineup of epic DJs – perfect to slut drop the weekend away & catch up with your regular queens. You’ll be sure to have yourself a gay old time.

199 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

Now to finish off your fabulous weekend, it’s time for you & your squad to leave Circus & strut down to Gossip Sundays at Love Machine. Always in attendance are Melbourne’s best drag queens & hottest dancers! With regular celebrity guest appearances, surprise performances & neon lights, no wonder it’s endorsed by the Queen of Melbourne herself, Gina Liano!  


Now hang that bower up and kick the gorgeous hunk next to you out, you have 5 days to recover and prepare to do it all again next weekend!
