A mere babe in the St Kilda bar scene, 29th Apartment doesn’t have to try hard to stand out. A homage to Katishe – a prostitute and artist who went missing in the 1980s – 29th Apartment is a bar, art gallery and lounge room all at once.
The tranquil setting of Veg Out Community Gardens is the green jewel in the racing heart of bayside St Kilda. While visitors eat, drink, sunbathe and party hard nearby, green-thumbed locals are busily tending their garden plots.
Fixated on fixies but can’t afford one? Or just want a classier ride on which to peruse Melbourne’s laneways on a Saturday? The Humble Vintage is here to help.
Ah, St Kilda. This boisterous and bohemian bayside suburb has seen a lot of action over the years, from cultural to criminal, arty to seedy. True, there’s been the occasional genteel moment (it’s living one right now), but no amount of gloss can disguise its party-hardy spirit or whitewash its colourful history. Why else would it remain Melbourne’s destination of choice for thrill-seekers and fun-lovers?
Blessed by its location (hello, St Kilda Marina), this place is hard not to like, especially when it has uninterrupted views across Melbourne’s famous Port Phillip Bay. Welcome to Riva. A bar and restaurant, this is a favourite establishment for locals and visitors alike. It’s suave, sophisticated and a little spiffy, but in a good way. It has something to offer everyone: a quality restaurant (plus a private dining room with gorgeous views for functions), lounge bar and the piece de resistance – a decked area that looks straight out over the ocean. Riva has quickly built a reputation as the place to be on a Sunday arvo, especially for the thirty-somethings out there. Live music starts from 4pm, so grab your buddies, throw on your Sunday best and be sure to get there in time for all the action. With the sun going down over the water and grooves in he background, it’s easy to get into the seaside vibe. Think oysters washed down with a caipiroska…heaven.
