What restaurants are near Her Majesty's Theatre?
Her Majesty’s Theatre sits on the corner of Melbourne’s Chinatown on Little Bourke Street, where you can find a wide range of Asian restaurants. Try Secret Kitchen for yum cha and fresh seafood, or Dahu Peking Duck for northern Chinese cuisine.
If you’re after something else, Bodega Underground offers authentic Mexican fare, complete with a pre-theatre dining offer and an ‘agave bible’ full of mezcal, tequila, and other agave spirits like sotol, raicilla and tutsi.
Nearby, Daughter in Law is a proudly ‘unauthentic’ Australian-Indian restaurant. Daughter in Law will dazzle you with its pink neon, bouncy tunes, and old Indian films projected onto the back wall. Try the delicious Indian Fried Chicken (served with pickles and tempered mustard mayonnaise) and Jeera Aloo (triple-cooked crispy garlic potatoes) along with a flavour-packed mocktail like the eponymous Daughter in Law (gin, caramelised pineapple, cardamom and lime – yum).

What bars are near Her Majesty's Theatre?
If you’re after a magical tipple after Mary Poppins, head up Lonsdale Street to Storyville, where you’ll be treated to fantasy décor and a range of cocktails themed to popular storybooks.
Boilermaker House is a relaxed but romantic bar nearby, where you can explore beer and whisky parings, craft beers from the micro-brewery, hearty bar bites, and deliciously offbeat cocktails like the lychee-based Dragon Eye Swizzle.
Or pop into 1806 on Exhibition Street, just up from Her Majesty’s Theatre, for a velvet-packed speakeasy cocktail bar named after the year when ‘cocktail’ was first defined in print. Head downstairs for a second, hidden bar that offers lesser-known spirits from around the world.
