ABOUT THE VENUE

“…Sydney’s most exclusive underground music venue….” that looks like a cross between Wonderland and Austen Powers’ dream dwelling. Cosy couch corners with plush velvet upholstery, eccentric decorations from Monsieur Camembert’s collection of designer and retro bric a brac, the most amazing objects d’art, bizarre kitsch and all sorts of, well, quirky stuff. Its also BYOG and you can bring your own snacks or picnic or enjoy the in-house Woodfire Pizza. Cool drinks and coffee/tea are also available.

I’s honestly not just a venue, it’s a fantasy! The sound and atmosphere reminds me of all the things we love and miss about Europe. It’s got loads of atmosphere, warmth, eccentricity, with touches of offbeat humour everywhere.

Being there gives you the feeling of being part of something truly special and rare.

Location : email to get on the mailing-list (which contains all details including the street address). This might sound strange, but it is SOOO worth it!!
