I have been to a lot of concert venues and this one remains to be my favourite, I have seen many shows here. It is small and intimate which is what I liked about it. The bar is at the back and it is elevated so you can stand back and enjoy a drink and still see the show. The... More

Located just five minutes walk from Flinders St Station and almost directly opposite the Melbourne Town Hall. The meagre entrance hides a fantastic live music venue.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
