Little Malop Street Precinct
Geelong & Bellarine Peninsula
The Little Malop Street precinct is emerging as Geelong’s coolest spot to eat, drink and enjoy the good things about a city.
The Little Malop Street precinct is culture central with an edge. The Geelong Library and Heritage Centre is the most striking piece of architecture in town: it’s somewhere between a futuristic domed mirror maze and the Darth Vader’s actual Death Star. It’s just as impressive inside, where tech meets tradition in a library that has evolved beyond books.
Next door, the Geelong Gallery has an impressive collection and a grand schedule of temporary exhibitions, while across the road the Geelong Performing Arts Centre is a hub of theatre, music and drama for the region.
Wandering east along the street there are huge and ever-changing street art installations down back laneways.
It’s around James Street that Little Malop Street shifts focus from eyes and ears to bellies, with a bunch of great places to eat and drink within a few hundred metres. There’s casual grub and international flavours up and down the street, an incredible cocktail bar with a prohibition-era vibe and a whole café dedicated to cake.
Nearby, the Geelong Cellar Door has brought the best of the region’s vineyards to town, showcasing legends alongside local up-and-comers in their wine bar – retail wine store hybrid.
At a laneway corner store, some of the best coffee in town gets served up and a few doors away, Piano Bar is, as the name suggests, a piano, a bar and a brilliant night of tapping your toes (or singing along!) to your favourite tunes – you can make a request at the bar.
