Melbourne CBD


Girls in Melbourne are beautiful, approachable and like to dress up. There are plenty of tourists here, especially in the summer. The city is very multicultural and you can find girls from all over the world living and travelling here. Because Melbourne is such a busy pedestrian city it is a great place to meet girls during the day. The city is laid out in a grid and between Flinders St and ... .


Cool venue to hang out and talk. Good girls here on the weekend but it can be quiet on other nights.

Pretty standard bar but it is open late and the bar upstairs often draws a big crowd later at night. Upstairs bar is The Loch & Key is hidden behind a bookshelf.
