Fitzroy is a trendy suburb just a few kilometers north of the Melbourne CBD. This was Melbourne’s very first suburb and it's filled with terraces, converted commercial and industrial buildings, modern apartments, walk-up flats, and public housing.
The neighborhood is saturated with cute cafes and cool restaurants, especially on the Smith Street, Brunswick Street, Gertrude Street and in some of the back streets. Nights in Fitzroy see streams of patrons at The Old Bar, Bar Open, and Cape Live who groove to live music while they drink a pint.
For art lovers, Fitzroy has a variety of small commercial art galleries, art studios and artist-run spaces; the Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces and the Centre for Contemporary Photography are the two main commercial galleries. The suburb is also home to a thriving street art community,
This vibrant atmosphere has attracted hip, urban professionals. Homes are pricey, but residents say that the prime location, along with the wonderful music and arts scene, make living in Fitzroy worth the price tag.
