Cafe33-39 Keele St, Collingwood VIC 3066
"Our local cafe is called CIBI. It's like this beautiful Japanese restaurant and has all these little Japanese trinkets and a plant shop as well so it's really nice to go in there and get a little treat and have a look at all the cute Japanese things. We're a big tea drinking band. So we love to go there and yeah, get a Japanese tea. That's our local."
The Rooks Return
Bar201 Brunswick St, Fitzroy VIC 3065
"You can go further up Brunswick Street and go to The Rooks Return on Wednesday night. And we'll see The Rookies play the best jazz that I've seen in Melbourne. They play that every Wednesday night and they've been doing it for about nine years. So the band is just so so solid. They are incredible."
Diner10 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000
"I've just remembered Butcher's Diner, which is right in the city. The food is so so incredible, because it's kind of the place that all the people who work in hospitality go after they finish work so it's open really late. And they make everything so authentically, serve them in this kind of casual dining away. So we've been there a few times, we have had a big day of dance rehearsals and then found ourselves at Butcher's Diner just like stuffing our faces."
Restaurant296-298 Rathdowne St, Carlton North VIC 3054
"It's called Henry Sugar in Carlton and it's so so nice because it's open really late, and they'll give you a coffee or a chai late at night. It's like the kind of place where you could have a first date, but you could also just go and read a book. And, you know, stay up all night writing assignments or doing work and stuff. So I really appreciate there's like late night productivity type places."
