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.
Anchor Place carries a scent that is somewhere between home & florist. Cosy, familiar & romantic. Perfection. And we haven’t even got to the clothes yet. After all, that’s what everyone will be visiting for. At Anchor place you’ll find vintage Japanese pieces that include leather handbags, authentic rock t-shirts, bomber jackets and dresses that have floated in from another era. Pay a visit to your new favourite boutique at the high profile Greville Street & Izett Street corner.
Now, this isn’t a comprehensive list of businesses new to Chapel Street in April 2017! There’s no fun in spilling all of the news, so get out there and explore for yourself. If you happen to find a new eatery/bar/retailer who you think deserves a mention – let us know! @chapelprecinct on Insta + @chapelstreetprecinct on Facebook.
