A unique atmosphere

Street food is a staple of many Asian cities.

However, it’s one that we don’t see much of here in Melbourne!

Feel like you’re missing out? You don’t need to book a flight north to experience the unique atmosphere of an Asian street food market!

The Night Noodle Markets aim to recreate this unique atmosphere.

The outdoor setting, the buzz of activity, the countless fragrances all mixing with one another… the Night Noodle Markets promise this exact same vibe and atmosphere, right in the heart of Melbourne.

Add live music and DJs to the mix, and you’ve got a fantastic atmosphere that’s perfect for a date or family night.

You can also rock up with a picnic rug and get comfortable on the grass of Birrarung Marr.
