This is a great old building built for the Nicholas (Aspro) family in the 'Chicago' style but it is now located in not a very pleasant part of Swanston Street (corner of Flinders Lane) and has some fairly average tenants with 'specialty' shops.

There are several fabric haberdashery shops, a vintage clothes shop and a great book shop that specialises in literature/poetry. It is well worth a visit by anyone interested in building of the era,you can either use the lifts, or walk the stairs.

The Nicholas Building is an historic icon of Melbourne. If you venture up the staircase, each of the lower levels uncovers little shops filled with creative and interesting treasures. If you're interested in textiles, Kimono House and Lucello are both a delight. The upper floors...More

For anyone who likes arts, crafts, exhibition spaces, fashion and retro design, the alternative shops and studios in the Nicholas Building are fun to explore. And so is the building. It dates from 1926, is 9 storeys high, and is heritage protected. The lifts are...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
