Lonely Planet, no less, rated Bold Street as one of the best shopping streets in the country, and it’s easy to see why.
For your independent stores, cafes and restaurants, this is your place. Selling everything from world foods to records, you’ll peruse your way up or down this cobbled steps for hours.
For foodies, wander down Bold Street to experience a multicultural taste journey. Indulge in the street food delights at Peruvian Chicha or Love Thy Neighbour for a dose of health from a nutrient-packed Buddha Bowl. Before you go, pick up some world foods at Mattas, book a wine tasting at Italian Club Fish, or grab a ready-made picnic pack at East Avenue Bakehouse; it’s all about pairing food with great experiences on Bold Street.
If you think yourself quite the tea connoisseur, the loose leaf tea at LEAF are about to become your new best friends, and for sweet tooths, there’s Bold Street Sweets - where everything from American candy to the traditional mints are right at your fingertips.
And what about the book lovers out there? We think you’ll be satisfied amongst the bohemian hardbacks at News from Nowhere and Rennies Art Gallery can show the avid collectors out there what’s what.
For quirky designer furniture and unique gifts, look no further than Utility, and head for Resurrection for reworked and branded clothes, or Pop Boutique for the best vintage you can find.
And of course, no visit to one of our favourite streets would be complete without heading all the way up to the Church of St Luke - also known as the Bombed Out Church by the locals. A much-loved landmark, iconic landmark at the very heart of the city, you can come here and bask in its green gardens, marvel at what remains, and embark upon one of the many amazing events that are held here throughout the year.
With tonnes of independent businesses opening here each year, Bold Street has never felt so thrilling. We think it's about time you experience it.
