NOTE: La La Land CBD has now closed, but the review is still there to see what you missed out on. Also it is still open out in Prahran.
A comfortable bar to relax in; La La Land brings about the feeling of an alpine ski lodge without the hassle of walking in snow to get there.
- Relatively easy; well lit lane with only Pugg Mahones to contend with.

The first thing that you will notice upon entering La La Land is a wooden staircase and a pot-belly stove, possibly leading you to think that maybe you’ve walked into the entrance way to a small Swedish house. As you push on upstairs it becomes apparent that this is actually an expansive Swiss chalet, occupying the whole top floor. La La Land has been furnished with inviting couches, a lofty roof, wide bar and sprinkled with a couple of fireplaces.
What you also may or may not see is space filled to the brim with people or only a few weary punters chilling out. La La Land is the kind of place that can be very popular with those in the know, so if you want a quiet one avoid peak times. When looking for something to quench your thirst there is the usual thoroughfare, however if your tastes are more exotic then maybe you should stop being so picky and relax.
Speaking of relaxing, that is exactly what you will be doing once you sit down in your couch of choice. Being so comfortable it becomes an effort to get yourself up to go get a drink and as service from the comfort of your sofa isn’t available then its a good excuse to go rounds. Before long you will waking up from, dare I say it, la la land (I know I know horrible pun) and look at your watch wondering where the hours have gone. As you walk out the door be thankful that unlike in similar places you won’t have to trudge home in the snow.
Great place to go to relax during non-peak times, to catch up with old friends.
+ Plenty of seating
+ Good place for the start of a night, or winding down at the end.
+ Relaxing atmosphere
- Sometimes no seating
- Not a huge range of beverages
