Dozens of quirky eateries and quirky coffee shops - antique stores and markets and the best book shops for keen collectors - try Proseworthy in the Long Street Antique Arcade - and absolute gem!

Having heard Long Street is the place to go for some night life, you will be sorely disappointed. The bars on the street are average, many are poor and dingy with beggars bothering you as you enter and leave. If you ask a taxi or one of the street wardens for a good bar, you will most likely be led towards one of the many strip clubs instead. The road doesn't look too good in the daytime but at night time is dark and frequented by many beggars and you may find yourself surrounded by persistent ones.

I visited Long Street a few times. And I've always had a great experience. Some people may look a bit dodgy, but always be with a group of friends or people. The clubs are great, the vibe and even the food at local restaurants or take-outs.
Really, everytime an awesum experience.

It smells funny in some areas is a little sketchy in others. But it is long street, if you go with a sence of adventure and willingness to enjoy the moment it can be extremly fun. Though do be careful.

Very impressed with this place. It's full of energy and life. Lots of bars and nightclubs. It's very busy and atmosphere is great.
