"What's Not To Love?"

This area of St Kilda has something for everyone. It is right on the beach for when the weather warms up, there are some great music venues and bars and there is an amusement park for the young and the young at heart. I went to Luna Park one New Years Eve and saw Tenacious D play, then went on down to the beach for one of the most memorable nights ever. The St Kilda Festival also runs down here each year and there are plenty of restaurants so if you can't find something to do down here there is something wrong with you!

"Richo's review"

This street is in a great place by the bay, close to loads of restaurants, bars and shops. A little noisy on the weekend with the drunkards around.

A great place for singles to live.

soutarm How's the Espy pub going? I used to hang out there back in the day (mainly because the bands were free and I was broke). Is Luna Park still open?

melbs Yeah, the Espy is going strong, still lots of live music. And Luna Park is also still open. The palace night club has been knocked down to make way for a huge development.
