Barre to Bar

31 October 2016

From fitness to French Martinis, Melbourne’s CBD offers the busy city worker an eclectic mix of pastimes to suit everyone.

Situated on arguably one of the most well-known corners of the city, the T&G Building spans the block between Collins Street and Flinders Lane. It’s a wonderful location in the midst of the best Melbourne has to offer.

Want to transform your body and mind in one of the nearby health and wellbeing studios? No problem. Or maybe it’s time to head down Flinders Lane to your favourite laneway retreat? We’ve got you!

Here’s our definitive guide to get you from Barre (studio) to Bar (stool)…



Barre Body – 175 Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD

Combining yoga and Pilates with ballet, Barre Body workouts are not for the faint-hearted. While movement is minimal, muscle engagement is not. Attend just two classes, and you will have perfect posture for sitting on your bar stool.

Melbourne Yoga & Pilates – Level 4, 178 Collins Street, Melbourne CBD

Whatever you’re in the mood for, the team at Melbourne Yoga & Pilates can help you meet your specific fitness goals. Choose from yoga, barre, HIIT, personal training, exercise physiology or Clinical Pilates and feel uplifted.

Move Hot Yoga – Level 1, 335 Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD
Raw interiors and premium amenities offer the perfect backdrop for an energetic Power Vinyasa flow that will leave you lighter than air.



Misty Bar – 3-5 Hosier Lane, Melbourne CBD
Contemporary-meets-underground at Misty – a dark cocktail bar that serves up unique drinks with a bit of an edge from the expert bartenders.

Gin Palace – 10 Russell Place, Melbourne
If martinis are your poison, Gin Palace is worthy of a visit. The staff here never fail to make you feel like a local as they serve up cocktails using one – or more – of their 200 gins on the menu.

Movida – 1 Hosier Lane, Melbourne CBD

With arguably one of the best Spanish wine selections in the city, Movida is not just a restaurant. Pop in after class for a glass of their 2010 Ponce La Casilla Bobal Manchuela while we wait for summer to arrive.
