Top Attractions within Prahran

ThePrahran Arcade, opened in July 1890, was designed by the local architect, George McMullen, and constructed by James McMullen for Elizabeth Delaney. The arcade is a two and three storey building which was originally comprised of 29 ground floor shops and a hotel complete with 30 bedrooms while a café, baths, and billiard rooms comprise the upper floors.
 
The Prahran Arcadeis significant because of its architectural and aesthetic beauty. It also shows the Victorian Second Empire architectural style applied to a suburban commercial building! The application of the architectural style to the Arcade is unusual because those styles are usually applied to more free-standing structures such as the Town Hall and Shamrock Hotel in Bendigo, and the former Records Office in Queen Street, Melbourne.
 
Are you the person who likes to chill at night? Then, here's The Revolver Upstairs which is a rough, cultural, clubby house that hosts regular entertainment from international acts and DJs to exhibitions and trivia nights. And to add more mystery to the place's ambience, old-style lamps illuminate the poster-clad walls, while the arty clientele schmooze in retro sofas.

Cook's Cottage is located near Prahran in Melbourne and it bears the name of the infamous Captain Cook. Move your hire car and visit the house that was built in the 18th century by the parents of James Cook.
