"Bars, clubs, booze and more!!"

Fitzroy Street in St Kilda is a great street to have a fun night out with friends after a hard days work on Friday or Saturday. There are so many clubs and pubs on Fitzroy Street that you will always find a cool place that suits everyone.

On a Saturday night, White Bar is a great drinking hole to get the night started, and then you can move on to The Saint across the road. Robarta Bar is just down the road as well, as is Prince of Wales and Mink Bar. There are just too many places to mention.

While this is a great street to have an energetic night out on, it really is in the thick of Melbourne's nightlife, and as such im not sure i would want to live here. There are a number of homeless people living here, and you will always get the rowdy crowds on Friday\Saturday nights.

It is close to the beach and I think there is a large shopping center going in just around the corner.

Overall, it's a great street for singles\young couples and tourists! It's something you really should visit at the very least and get a good tast of what Melbourne is all about!

AdamS Hi cbarkla,

No I don't live there, but I do spend A LOT of time on Fitzroy street, so I know it quite well. Also, one of the new features on StreetAdvisor is to do a review as a "Visitor\Tourist" so if you know streets really well, but don't actually live on them, you can still write a review! You can tell the reviews written by residents or visitors by reading the tag next to the review header!

Having read your review, you sure must be excited for the potential of summer of coming up. Fitzroy Street sure does pump of over summer!

Thanks cbarkla!!!

"Fun at this stage in my life but wouldnt buy here"

Great place to live at the moment especially if you're single and love getting amongst the easy, flirty women that frequent the many bars and clubs all but a stones throw away from my little love nest - but alas I am not and so i am really just dreaming of the good ol days when I could strut into white bar with me good ol pal adsy wadsy and do nothing more than click my fingers and flick my hair and I would have a bevy of beautiful women at my fingertips.

But alas I am now taken with a beautiful sexy norwegian glamour puss so i really just stay in now and admire the view from withing the sanctity of my own lounge room now and pity the poor shallow, pathetic single masses who are trying to "find" themselves and their senses on the dirty nasty sweaty floors of The Saint over the road - specifially i was thinking of "arbs"

Although if you dont like the smell of fresh urine near your doorstep evry sunday morning courtesy of these pathetic souls then it may not be for you - oh and when I went away fro 2 weeks and left mr "not normal" pernsy in charge of our love nest someone (??? pernsy) did defacate in our elevator - as I said probably wouldnt buy here

BOOM!!

AdamS WOW! What a review!! Although a little on the personal side cbarkla, is it safe to assume you wont be living there for the long term?

Very informative review though!

"Great access to beaches, parks and bars and an excellent primary school"

Great place to live if you like parks, the beach and eating out and need a good primary school for young kids

soutarm Fitzroy St always struck me as the place for boozers and brawlers so a place where singles or maybe couples might want to live. I didn't even know there was a primary school in the area!
