Melbourne Daily Photo

Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Section 8


Nestled in the middle of Chinatown down one of Melbourne's laneways, is a gardened graffiti haven - where the drinks are cool, the decor's cool and the bar staff even cooler. This great little bar adds life and zest, and on a Friday after work you'd be lucky to get standing room only.

If you're looking for walls and a ceiling - forget it! Hip, bright and funky,
Section 8 is one of the hottest places around. Take a bare space between buildings, wire fencing, get some talent to paint the bricks, toss in highly coloured scatter cushions, add a bar, create an Eastern theme and Voila!

The tables are 40 gallon drums, the seats square container boxes all graffitied over in a myriad of colour and pattern. Sit where you like - it's the coolest joint around.

This looks like a statute of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy

Autumn Belle - yes it is Kuan Yin.
Leif - they tasted good too!
Rob - It is so not in your face - you could do anything and nobody would bat an eyelid.
Denise - yes it is, but then I might be a tad biased. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Eileeninmd - I reckon Melbourne is a great place too. Thanks for commenting.
