the security at this place is so absolutely intrusive that you have no chance to actually enjoy yourself... want to have a cigarette outside? prepare to be inspected everytime you come back inside, and sometimes arbitrarily refused entry back in, even though your stuff is in there, if they decide they don't like the look of you. seriously, the bouncers...

I'm so upset with myself for not knowing about this place. Always lineups but I never investigated it. From the security at the door to barstaff to the fantastic band. The layout of the room and the different lighting was very special. I felt like I'd stepped into another world. I won't talk to much about the band except to... More

We enjoyed our jazz out night here. Good vibes and atmosphere with friendly mates around. We met some new friends here and dancing through the whole nite.

Great music BUT let down by all the sleezy pervets (mainly men) wanting to rub up against women on the dance floor, groups of which will circle the girls and turn the place into a sleezy dive. There are also to many wannabe salsa dancers who twirl around in a packed dance floor with no idea how to dance. Overall... More

I've been dragged here a few times by newcomers to Melbourne who want to check it out. Every single time, they tell me it's a massive let down. The bouncers make you wait in line outside for ages even when it's dead inside the venue, drinks are over priced and there are so many men who go by themselves and... More
