After a filling and delicious lunch at Shanghai Street, we took a leisurely stroll through Chinatown.
A few weeks ago, a friend told us about a neat bar he stumbled upon in one of the random alleyways off Chinatown. He couldn’t tell us what is was called or where it was, but he said it was a cool ‘nerdy’ bar that’s set up similar to a science lab with drinks being served out of flasks and test tubes. He also said it’s at the end of the sketchiest alleyway you might find and that we should definitely try to find it.
So this was the first random alley we decided to check out…
Love the art, although there was not another soul in sight
Turned the corner to what looked to be a dead end
And what do you know? We found it, called The Croft Institute! Haha, what a coincidence. Unfortunately, it was still too early and wasn’t opened yet.
Really liked this
Leaving Chinatown to head into Federation Square!
Liked this view of the tram and old architecture
In the atrium at Federation Square. Little sales going on and cafes to take a break at.
We headed into the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI)
Fun going through the history of moving image!
Outside, Federation Square. Many people passing through, hanging out, visiting nearby attractions
Now middle afternoon, we took a quick break in the atrium at In a Rush Espresso to recharge before continuing on
Portugese tart, iced tea and fresh fruit juice
The adventure will continue in the next blog, thanks for reading!
