Level 1, 371-373 Chapel Street, Prahran
The vibrant, art-deco setting holds just the right amount of eccentric appeal to pull off a backdrop to the twisted live acts on show. Music-wise the bill is heavy in soul, funk, disco and jazz acts - and don't bother getting your knickers in a knot trying to nab the best seats because the performance space has been constructed with raised booth seating and mezzanine, like a traditional jazz club, so that guests can view performers from any spot in the club. Raise the roof and be inspired.
330 Chapel Street, Prahran
Keep your eye out for a soft blue (nameless) sign. Blue Bar's narrow space is warmed by orange hanging lamps, a rustic fireplace and a buzz of conversation. The clientele is a hip, mixed bunch, in keeping with a down-to-earth, underground vibe befitting its graffiti walls.

438 Church Street, Richmond
For those of you with no grasp of the Germanic tongue, Der Raum means ‘The Room’. And although the space is pretty much just that, indeed, the cocktails are really the thing to do here; innovative and top-notch. A little further down Chapel Street but worth the trip, pop down on a Thursday when the bar-tenders get experimental and willing guinea pigs are required to sample their creations.
265 Chapel Street, Prahran
Situated atop a grand staircase, it may have cool views and attentive staff but it’s the slick, comfortable, designer décor which sets this venue apart.
