Melbourne is known to be one of the most livable cities in the world and when the sun goes down, the city turns into a party town. With a variety of bars, clubs, pubs and restaurants, the city’s nightlife has never been better!
If you’re looking to party hard, the city has some of the best nightclubs with great DJ nights. In contrast, there are also some quiet bars where you can enjoy a peaceful drink with your friends.
The Loop Project is a performance series that explores the intersection of art, technology and human connection. It is based on the premise that STEAM learning experiences should be accessible and affordable to everyone in our community.
The goal is to break the cycle of social and economic inequity that leads to unhealthy inflation, where education opportunities are only available for those who can afford them. The project strives to combat the negative effects of economic inequality by providing access to STEAM and tech-based classes that are not only high-quality, but also affordable to all residents in our community.
The Suburban Rail Loop is set to be a powerful attraction for new housing, jobs, shops and cafes in six new precinct areas across south-east Melbourne, with planning documents showing the population in those zones will more than double by 2056. However, critics say the massive transport infrastructure project could be more expensive than needed and that it has a “city-shaping” ambition that may be unattainable within a tight time frame.
Angel Music Bar
Located in central Melbourne, Angel Music Bar is a two-storey venue that’s music-focused. Featuring two Funktion-One sound systems, the upstairs room is where DJs are most visible, while the downstairs bar is a cool place to chill out and enjoy a cocktail or two.
In terms of performance, there’s a lot going on here, including an excellent line-up of DJs. Among the stars of the night are Chinese producer RUI HO, who delivers a fine mesh of synthesized textures; JALE, who trades strict loyalty to any sub-genre for a free-wheeling mix of moods and tempos; and HAM LAOSETHAKUL, who combines data smearing AI with oscillating explorations.
Angel is a definite must-visit for anyone looking for an exceptional night out. It’s not the easiest to get to, but it’s worth the trip if you love music. With an impressive sound system, a few cocktails to sip on and a decent snack menu cooked up next door at Butchers Diner, Angel is the ultimate destination for music lovers.
If you’ve ever eaten in a restaurant, you’ve likely heard the BOH staff shout “86” when they need to remove an item from the menu. It’s a quick way to communicate that an item is no longer available, but it can also be annoying for patrons.
There are a few reasons why items might need to be 86’d from the menu. Firstly, it may be because they are no longer fresh and are therefore out of stock. For example, if a dish contains ingredients that are highly perishable, such as leafy greens or sprouts, they can quickly go bad.
Originally launched in Melbourne in 2011, Poof Doof has become the biggest queer party in Australia. With an unwavering focus on quality dance music and late nights, Poof Doof is dedicated to keeping dance floors future forward, inclusive and – importantly – unashamedly gay.
As you would expect from a company that boasts a hefty budget, the venue has a stellar line-up of DJs and live acts. The main room is always a raging hotspot for the finest house music on offer and there’s always something on tap in Snap Crackle Pop, the club’s dedicated pop-tastic space. The club also happens to be one of Sydney’s coolest venues, located in the heart of the city’s LGBTQIA+ community, Taylor Square. It’s a perfect home for Poof Doof to show off its wares. You can catch Poof Doof at Kinselas every Saturday night starting 4 February. Those aficionados of quality booze and big beats are in for a treat.
