The first-ever list naming the World's Coolest Streets and the top 30 streets listed includes a street in Melbourne crowned number one – with Barcelona, London, Havana and LA narrowly missing out on the top spot.
"Our first ever World's Coolest Streets list celebrates the great local businesses and communities that make our cities and streets exciting," said James Manning, International Editor of Time Out.

"They have kept us going through the past year and it's more important than ever to support them as the world begins reopening. From outdoor dining to open-air culture, street life is where you can glimpse the future of our cities. Humans are social creatures and these streets are the places to be as we start eating, drinking and socializing together once again."
The list was formed from the opinions of city residents via the brand's annual Time Out Index: a global survey of more than 27,000 locals who were each asked to nominate their city's coolest street.
To rank the list, Time Out's international network of more than 100 local editors and experts factored in food, drink, art, culture, nightlife and community vibes over the past year.
