No doubt that this area between the central train station and Collingwood Street is the place to be and be seen. If you have a love for trendy bars with ‘posh’ décor and contemporary music, with strictly no ‘cheese’ allowed, look no further than The Diamond Strip.
Fancy sipping cocktails and listening to the freshest music, stop by Florita’s located on Collingwood Street. House of Smith, Perdu and Madame Koo are also known for their tempting cocktails on the strip. For alternative music, head to The Cut and in summer enjoy the rooftop beer garden at Tokyo.
Of course this upmarket area comes with a higher price tag, but if this is your scene, you will not be disappointed with the variety of bars and clubs it has to offer. Overall, The Diamond Strip is the most popular area, but if you are looking for more ‘cheesey’ floor filling tunes, try The Gate, or if more highbrow cocktail bars are your thing, visit No.28 or As You Like It.
