Images - City of Stonnington
The City of Stonnington is always bustling with life - apparent by the community that flocks into Chapel Street along Windsor, Prahran and South Yarra. Mondays and Tuesdays nightlife its only quieter days, the neighbourhood aka the hood, thrives as throngs of shoppers, party-goers and diners pound the pavements, ready to party. Chapel Street and its surrounds certainly delivers on that account with a plethora of eateries, retail, bars and nightclubs, cinema, local theatre venues and more.
Before we get onto October, see if you can catch a few things to do in September before they're gone. Especially with Grand Final weekend on our heels, see here for places to watch the Grand Final on the big screen, which does not, but should include The Wolf Windsor as it's a popular watering hole that sells good food, great chips, weekday $15 meal deals and half price locals night, and has live music Friday to Sunday, and let's not forget the Sunday Roast set to live music from 4pm onwards. Watch out for their new Spring Menu coming out soon! Does it show that this is my favourite haunt, a few minutes walk up the street, and that I love this bustling neighbourhood I live in?
