If you can put up with the noise at this venue, the nearest reliable paid parking is in the Stonnington multistorey carpark in Bangs/Little Chapel Street at the roundabout or, if you are very lucky, in a nearby side-street.

The Smith Prahran is a newly revamped, bigger and better venue which encapsulates contemporary design, stunning art, a tongue-in-cheek mood and a thought leading approach to contemporary cuisine. A space for your post work tipple, to have a night out or relax with an excellent glass of wine and some reasonably priced food. GOOD TIMES.
