If St Kilda Foreshore is that suburb's ground zero for recreational activities when summer rolls around, Acland Street remains the neighbourhood's entertainment hub all year round. While the strip's fortunes have changed over the years, it's still home to some excellent bars, restaurants and cafes — some of which have truly stood the test of time — and remains a place to see and be seen.

As with much of St Kilda, it's during summer that the strip really comes to life, with punters packing into venues and giving the street a constant buzz akin to a summer-long party. More recently, the commercial end of the strip (between Barkly and Carlisle Streets) has transformed into a tram and pedestrian mall, adding even more colour and vibrancy to this iconic Melbourne strip.
