    One of the best venues in Melbourne. Great space and decor, plenty of space to stand or sit and you can feel a bit of history inside.

    Incredibly strange interior design, faux Ancient Rome thing in plaster. Cheesy but kinda good.

    A beautiful venue decked out in weird Grecian statues and kitch architecture. Get a booth for a good view and a nice sit down.
