1000 £ Bend is essentially a reimagining of St Jerome's - Melbourne's beloved laneway haunt for over five years - adorned with a few old relics in the cafe from its walls for comforting posterity.
1000 £ Bend is a hybrid venue housing a bustling cafe, restaurant and bar in the front, a Gallery space in the back, a chapel and events space called The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo, and an upstairs cocktail bar - The Unknown Union - open Fridays and Saturdays from 5pm.
With Slice Girls Pizza's ($10 Pizza on Tuesdays) a class toastie menu, a delicious rotating weekend breakfast plus a well-fed drinks list, 1000 ₤ Bend is the CBD's go-to laid back gathering place. Don't forget the free WiFi and notoriously good playlist.
