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 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 early bird morning coffee at $3 and a hearty lineup of breakfast items, an unmatched burger and Slice Girls pizza menu ($10 Burger & Pizza Night on Tuesdays) 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.
