“Pretentious and lame music”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

We arrived just as the headline band finished playing. Had to wait an hour for the next DJ to set up. In the meantime very lame music was played in the background. The DJ was not worth the wait.

“Colonel Tans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

This place is great. Not only is Revolver one of the few places in Australia still supporting local live music, but Colonel Tans (...the resturant in the back room) is one of my fave places to eat and grab a drink when I'm in Melb. The food is great, the prices are stupidly affordable, and the service is helpful & friendly. The Fat Duck Noodles is a killer dish.

The decor is edgy retro (.... think 70's grunge) and the music is always in keeping with the feel of the place.

“Revolver @ Melbourne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2004

Revolver - Whoa! It is certainly different, thats for sure... Great people, music and surroundings. Only problem is the daylight coming through the cracks in the windows in the morning... just wear your sunnies...

“SUNDAY MORNING BLISS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2004

Fabric, The End, The Cross, The Arches... are just some of the clubs ive explored while living and travelling in the UK,yes they are/were an experience but i never stop myself telling new best friends of the night, that REVOLVER on a Sunday morning is bliss and there is no better place for dancing and music
I did find myself to be a regular there and im not filthy and dirty as you find pretentious clubberes describing the Revolver 'Revolting' dance lovers.
I just enjoy the vibe as walking up those stairs escaping the real world then you hear the music and your own world has been created for you. You are surrounded by smiles and knowone trying to chew your ear off with words that you dont understand but watch out for the 50 something year old Alice Cooper double, yes he looks frightning and his shoes are deadly too WATCH OUT!
