Take your eyes away for two minutes & BANG – someone moves into Chapel, ready to shake things up! If you haven’t been keeping your ear to the ground, here’s a handful of Chapel Street newcomers that you need to check out ASAP.

Southside Central opened it’s doors at 34 Chapel Street in the last week of April, but fits so well into the Windsor landscape, you’d think it has been in place since the dawn of time. This two story burger palace is the sister venue to the Peninsula’s Southside Social, so you know that they’re serving up some of the best burgers around. But while the food is perfectly gluttonous, it’s the fit out that’ll have your tongue wagging. Walls covered in street art, neon quote lights that scream out to Insta & then there’s the rooftop balcony.

Mr. Wilson’s Tuck Shop is phase one of Chef Paul Wilson & Prahran Market’s Wilson & Market Project – a new hospitality venture that’ll be a thriving local hub in the heart of Prahran. The Tuck Shop is open right now, with the Cafe and then the Restaurant opening in stages very soon. There are big things in store for this landmark spot.  Right now it’s all a little hush hush, but you can trust that everyone will be talking about it VERY soon.
