Went on a Sunday - quiet atmosphere but very enjoyable. We booked it last minute, but for a quiet evening we should have just showed up and avoided the booking fee. We arrived 45 minutes before the advertised start time and got an excellent seat....More

Karise was not showcased well by this venue. The venue holds promise but we were dismayed by the treble high pitch acoustics (at the far end of the venue), that until we highlighted were not noticed by sound crew half way through the show, the...More

Live music in Melbourne is a joy and this venue is a great example. Terrific program of local and international performers, excellent sound and good view angles to the stage. You can opt for dinner and show, or just drop by for the music and...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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
