Tattersalls Lane Melbourne

An evening out in Melbourne recently found us at one of our favorite locations, Tattersalls Lane.  A tiny alleyway running between Little Bourke Street and Lonsdale Street, it contains a few of Melbourne's hidden gems.  Section 8 is an open air bar set on a vacant lot. Cyclone mesh fences serve as walls and the bar is housed in a converted old shipping container.  The seating has been cobbled together from wooden pallets and bits of ply board.  The surrounding red brick walls are coated in a variety of street art, that adds to is cool atmosphere.

We met up with our dear friends the Darmody-Popes' at Section 8 and headed off to the No Vacancy Gallery At the nearby QV Building for the opening of "A handful of civilised Friends".  The very first exhibition for the talented Katrina Rhodes.

Then it was back to Tattersalls Lane for a late supper at the Camy Shanghai Dumpling and Noodle restaurant, our other great favorite in this lane.  We left here in a drizzle of Melbourne autumn rain, which was dampening the prospects of the flower seller, but not his sales pitch.
