There is something to a city at night. There is an underlying feeling of wonder, almost like it provides a blanket under which you can wrap yourself. There is a life different from that which one can see and feel during the day. At night the city comes alive, out from the corners it comes, the sounds and smells are different, the people without the concern of day come out of themselves.
The alleys too with their myriad of different cafes and meeting places change with the oncoming dark and under the lights, they seem to change personality. Melbourne at night is so far removed from the Melbourne of day. It’s personality, feel and look takes on a new change of appearance. Melbourne at night is magical.
