Melbourne is home to the coolest street in the world.

What makes a street cool, particularly in 2021?

That's what Timeout asked 27,000+ city-dwellers and Smith Street Collingwood one out is the coolest street in the world.

We know that Melbourne has been voted the world's most livable city more than any other city in the last decade, however, it fell in the rankings this year because of the many Covid lockdowns.

When ranking for streets looking for food and fun, culture, and community Smith Street in Melbourne, which is famous for its lively bars, vintage shops, queer bars, and some of the best restaurants in the city, won out.

This is despite it being in coronavirus lockdown for more than 100 days last year.

Time Out wrote.

“It makes a lot of sense – Smith Street and Collingwood as a whole are extremely popular places to hang out in Melbourne,”

“Once the stomping ground of street gangs in the 1800s, Collingwood has a long, proud, chequered history of giving the middle finger to authority.

“It’s been overshadowed by Fitzroy and Brunswick Street for decades, but where the former is starting to feel a little stale, Smith Street is only getting better.”

The only other Australian street to make the cool list was King Street in Newtown in Sydney’s hip inner west – which came in at number 19.
