Jack Charles has the lowdown on the best places to check out, and he would know because he’s #AllBoutIt. Here’s Jack’s top 10 bars on Chapel Street.

“Having lived around Chapel Street over the past 7 years, you really do learn the ins and outs.” Here’s a list of a few of my favs!

Morris Jones Bar Windsor

Once a furniture store, Morris Jones still holds its 1887 heritage appeal, encapsulated by its wood and brick interior. Sophistication is added through its wine list, fantastic cocktails and a beer garden. If that doesn’t excite you, head Chef Matthew Butcher’s cuisine will!

Yellow Bird Windsor

If you’re the type to rock Air Max 90s, Yellow Bird the place for you! There’s great music, an affordable menu and an outdoor area that’s great for people watching on a summer’s night!

Fonda Windsor

While the sun sets, refresh yourself with a ‘Netflix & Chill’ cocktail and a D.I.Y starter board!

Two Wrongs South Yarra
7. Two Wrongs

Having just celebrated their first birthday, Two Wrongs is described as “fine diving”. With its Versace cutlery, UV lighting and gloomy candles, you may feel like you’re in Gotham City. The ambiance of the bar reflects its menu – mysterious, creative & cool.

Borsch Vodka and Tears

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.

Leonard's House of Love
5. Leonards House of Love

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it feels like to come home from skiing on the Alps to a log cabin bar, then pull up your skis because this is the place for you! With a ’70s inspired decor, this funky bar is decked out with timber walls, an open fireplace and stone masonry. You can’t beat their fantastic outdoor area and phenomenal American cuisine.

Woods of Windsor

A true prohibition styled bar; draped in wood, knowledgeable bartenders and an impressive back bar, The Woods Of Windsor is for the dignified ladies and gentlemen.

Mr Miyagi Windsor

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…

Rufus Bar Prahran

Rufus has to be one of the most special bars in Australia, let alone just on Chapel. You walk down a little cobble lane off Greville and in through the unmarked decadent black door into another world. You step back to New York in the 1920s. Waiting your table is a stunning man with old fashioned manners in a three-piece suit. Every inch of Rufus feels intimate and special. Every piece of furniture is unique and the huge chandeliers are breathtaking. As a first date spot this is the place to guarantee a first kiss.

Jungle Boy Windsor
1. Jungle Boy

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!)!
