The Bandroom

Hosting the likes of The White Stripes, Wolfmother, Alt-J, and The Living End just to name a few, our Studio 54 inspired band room is Melbourne's premier underground live music hub nestled in the heart of Chinatown.

What's On

The Kitchen

The sounds, smells, and tastes of the bayou have arrived in Melbourne. Direct from New Orleans, Head Chef Chris Weysham, is introducing Melbourne to his Cajun heritage and home style, Louisiana cooking.

What's Cooking

The Late Night

Put on your dancing shoes. From midnight the disco takes over the whole venue so you can dance the night and early hours of the morning away. We host 3 regular nights spinning the greatest soul, indie, and party tunes ever written.
