They say geek is the cool, right?
Geek central in Melbourne must be the corner of Elizabeth and Little Collins Streets.
Why? Because within a few metres are no less than three pop culture shops:
Secondly, a little further up Little Collins Street is this shop, which as far as I can tell, has no actual name. At least, none prominently on display. (Professor Google says it’s called “Critical Hit“.)
Thirdly, that old favourite, Minotaur. I used to shop there in the 80s when it was in Swanston Street. Then it moved to Bourke Street, and more recently(ish, well, probably 10+ years ago now) to Elizabeth Street — the former Melbourne Sports Depot, I think.
EBGames in Swanston Street (also a former Melbourne Sports Depot?) has opened a geek section in their basement.
The ABC Shop has moved to Emporium.
