Internet radio station Hope St Radio found a new permanent home in 2021, opening the doors to a wine bar and kitchen within the revamped Collingwood Yards. Also dubbed Hope St Radio, the venue boasts an expansive space beside the precinct's central courtyard — its bright, roomy interiors decked out with timber booths and fun mural art by Peter Cole and Alice McIntosh.

Food-wise, it's all about the after-work snacks and dinner options; best enjoyed alongside some local beers, sustainably-produced wines, or serves of Fernet and coke. The menu changes regularly, though expect to find options like rigatoni all'amatriciana, focaccia with whipped garlic and tarragon butter, and creamy burrata teamed with artichokes and a vibrant nettle oil.

Unsurprisingly, music is a big part of the bar's DNA, with a custom sound set-up courtesy of Hot Wax Sound Systems featuring tunes from Hope St Radio's expert curation of musicians and artists. A live broadcast keeps the venue buzzing right through the end of each week.
