Night Bites — Experience Melbourne’s best street eats

The city takes on a different character at night — shadowy alleyways, raucous bars, and excited theatre-goers. It’s with this backdrop that you’ll explore a city coming to life. Duck and weave through the crowds as you find yourself in three unique holes-in-the-wall from a cheeky standing bite. This is not your typical, sit-down-and-wait-an-hour-for-your-food walking tour. No, this experience will have you pushing crowds aside to find that perfect greasy pizza joint in the back of a dive bar, having your guide help you translate the mandarin menu from a dumping house, and exploring a restaurant that seems juuust on this side of the health code.
