Will it ever be the same again?
What a spot St Kilda is…A history and culture that’s the envy of any beachside suburb in Australia and maybe the world. What is it that makes it so good…It’s not always hot, the wind can get really blowy and sometimes St Kilda feels like an old gold rush town…where you hear people say…once it was and one day it will be again.
However, and somehow, it’s really cool most of the time… Here’s a little what you can expect…
Eccentrics, artists, dive bars, back packers, individual and idealistic restaurants. Then there’s actors, cool kids, trendsetters and evens suits. All these characters combined or otherwise are like some sort of strange circus performing at random times, unexpected performances to unsuspecting audiences.
St Kilda… A Circus, constantly evolving but just great!
Dreaming of another time…
Reminiscing on the summer of 2019, with so much to do and so much to see… what a year it was. From the bustling Summer Twilight Market to romantic sunsets by the beach, it seems like 2020 has been a year of missed opportunities. And as the sun beams brighter and the days get longer, the question on everyone’s mind is, will it ever be the same again?
One thing we know for sure, is that, the suburb of St Kilda will never surrender itself to a lonely death. And as the time grows closer we are comforted by the fact that we will one day soon, be able to meet again.
Flour Child St Kilda, yours to discover and yours to imagine.
A few steps up from the Acland St door, you discover a doorway. There’s no sign, just a unique image that signals the entrance. You might have to stay alert a little and peer through the doorway to see the staircase that enthusiastically invites you in. As you venture up a little further, the “walls of wonder” start to appear. They are filled with sparkling champagnes, wines, spirits and all sorts of beverage indulgence that is ever so visual. You might find the décor glamorous and luxurious because it is exactly that. You recognise the all too familiar sound of cocktails being shaken while you eagerly find a table. It doesn’t matter which one, they all reflect the best view on Acland Street. This place doesn’t quite fit in, it’s different from the rest, but a welcomed change to your usual St Kilda hang out.
This is “Flour Child”.
St Kilda’s latest Pizza and cocktail bar dig. An Australian first, Flour Child produces a remarkably new style of pizza. Authentic “Pinsa Romana” is a combination of flour that is made up of Rice flour, Soy flour and soft Wheat flour. Always crunchy on the crust, soft and fluffy in the center and so well cooked with 80% hydration this pizza leaves you feeling satisfied but not heavy…
Warning: eat this pizza and you may never bother to eat any other pizza again…well, not without disappointment!
Always spectacular views, but the best sunset views. Luna park views and the best people watching, Flour Child is the place to be whilst enjoying all of what makes up the most wonderfully eclectic suburb in the world!
Just waiting to be discovered.
