Hidden Spaces In Melbourne
Alpha60 concept store in Chapter House
This extraordinary retail space, just adjacent to St Paul’s Cathedral, has to be seen to be believed. Walk up two flights of stairs to an elegant and lofty hall with high ceilings, expansive glass windows and a grand piano. In addition to showcasing Alpha60’s quirky, distinctly Melbourne take on classic cuts and styles, it’s also a place for artistic collaboration. Recent pop-up performances include the MSO’s Secret Symphony series and a preview of Tao Dance Theatre during the AsiaTOPA Festival. It was also the location for Broadsheet’s White Noise creative hub during White Night Melbourne. Find the entrance near the original Alpha60 store on Flinders Lane.
Where Banksy left his mark
Before the city laneways were a bonafide tourist attraction, they had already been discovered by the world’s most famous street artist. Although Banksy’s work is increasingly difficult to find, you can still see one of his infamous rat stencils. Head down ACDC Lane past Cherry Bar, and head into Duckboard Place. You will find it hiding in a doorway
East and West Germany, in a bar
A nod to Berlin’s historical past, the Berlin Bar is hidden up a staircase behind a locked door. Ring the doorbell and enter a bygone era when the German way of life – and architecture – was starkly divided. Make sure you have a drink in both rooms. The west offers opulent, kitschy luxury, while the east is minimalist, with touches of communist propaganda.
Out of Africa, in a bar
Hidden vaults in the Old Treasury Building
The Old Treasury Building tour is more than a trip down memory lane. It’s home to the original vaults where gold bullion was stored during the Gold Rush era. Explore the vaults with free entry Sunday through to Friday.
On the rooftop of Jimmy Watson’s, Wolf’s Lair is the city oasis you need to visit. A rooftop garden decked out in green astroturf and quirky decorations, head here for a beer in the autumn sunshine.
