If you do de­cide to let loose, QT is within easy reach of the­atres, gal­leries, bou­tiques and some of the best restau­rants and bars in town. Here are a few of our favourites.

SUPERNORMAL J-pop vibes unite with An­drew Mc­Connell’s dy­namic menu of Asian-driven party food. A meal at the bar, re­plete with pick­les, dumplings and spicy sal­ads, is a Mel­bourne rite of pas­sage. (180 Flin­ders Lane; supernormal.net.au)

TIPO 00 You’d be hard-pressed to find a bet­ter plate of pasta and glass of wine in the city. Next door, sis­ter restau­rant Os­te­ria Ilaria is also worth a visit. (361 Lit­tle Bourke Street; tipo00.com.au)

EMBLA Favourite hang­out of many of the chefs dur­ing The World’s 50 Best, this cosy wine bar also of­fers se­ri­ously good food. (122 Rus­sell Street; embla.com.au)

FRENCH SALOON Ex­pect French bistro clas­sics ex­e­cuted with de­li­cious fi­nesse. Or­der a Lil­let Blanc or Le Spritz for com­plete cul­tural im­mer­sion. (L1, 46 Hard­ware Lane; french­sa­loon.com)

BAR LOURINHÃ Latino snacks and fi­esta fun brought to you by cel­e­brated chef Matt Mc­Connell. (37 Lit­tle Collins St; bar­lour­inha.com.au)

SOI 38 Au­then­ti­cally spicy Thai noo­dle soup served from a hole-in-the-wall eatery in­side a car park? How very Mel­bourne. (38 McIl­wraith Place; soi38.com)
