The Best Melbourne Nightlife

The Best Melbourne Nightlife

Melbourne is Victoria’s capital and is located right on the coast. It is famous for it’s old world style with tree lined boulevards and grand stately buildings. Restaurants, bars and plazas are dotted all over the city with lively events happening all along the Yarra River.

Some of the best bars and clubs you can possibly find in town are listed below.


Yah Yah’s

Smith Street

One of Fitzroy’s most successful underground bars. It has a less than exclusive entrance poking out from a dingy side street.

However, once past the chipboard portal things take a turn for the better. This is the sort of place that everybody drinks beer and fancy cocktails are not on the agenda.

The atmosphere is quite beatnik and arty, people are friendly and welcoming. There is even a small dance floor and stage and don’t be surprised to see the likes of a Smith’s tribute band playing.


The Sporting Globe

Alexander Road

Part of the Moonee Ponds empire and their latest edition in Melbourne. It is a mix of a traditional Aussie pub and American Sports bar.

The food is substantial and typical with the menu containing items such as burgers, wraps, wings and steaks.

But if it is sport you are after then the Globe is definitely the place for you. There are over 40 screens and TAB facilities, the pub also gets highly involved with the community and sponsors many local teams and clubs.


The Joint

Elizabeth Street

A rough and ready haven favoured by backpackers and tourists alike. The Joint is famous amongst the younger crowd and packs a mighty punch most nights.

Situated on Elizabeth Street below a backpackers hotel it is a casual hangout with plenty of pool tables, video games, juke box and relaxing areas just to pass time and enjoy a bottle of cool beer.

The location is ideal right next to Flinders Street Station so getting there is easy and prices are low.


Paris Jazz Club

Goldie Place

If Jazz is your thing then a visit to Paris Jazz Club is a must as it is probably Melbourne’s premier live Jazz venues.

The atmosphere harks back to 1930’s Paris and there is a resident smooth live jazz band laying down some serious beats.

It is easy to forget that you are actually in Melbourne as intimate little rooms are lavishly decorated with candle light flickering as illumination.

The walls are adorned with pictures of previous performers and the art deco mirror just above the bar is a focal point.

Paris Jazz Club is actually a series of rooms; Paris Cat Bar, Paris Cat Basement and the Paris Gallery.

The menu is not extensive but people are here for the music and to sip on exotic drinks; cocktails, martini’’s, champagne and vintage whiskeys.
