City square was meant to be Melbourne's main meeting place but it never worked. The nearby Federation Square totally has stolen its thunder and is a far better city meeting place. It is not all bad in city square though. A water feature runs the length of it, with little bridges across. Some of the best inner city bars are located here, Three Below is a fine example. They can get quite crowded with suits around 5pm. Major events are held in the square throughout the year. During Spring Fashion week in September the place come alive with free runway shows. In December it becomes Christmas Square, with a huge tree and entertainment laid on for the kids.
