Melbourne Bars & Nightlife

The city certainly comes alive at night, and there is no shortage of Melbourne bars and an awesome nightlife to go with them. You may decide to take a night out with your friends or partner. You might want to get out on your own and meet new people. You will find some great music venues, bars and clubs around the city and inner suburbs, some hidden away down lane ways and alleys. There is such a wide variety, from your basic, typical, down-to-earth Aussie pubs, to incredibly stylish wine bars, as well as to venues with lots of atmosphere, and super clubs with the best DJ’s pumping out music into the early hours.

In general, bars stay open to around 1.00am during the week and 3.00am at weekends, while some clubs are open until 5.00am or 7.00am at the weekend. It is worth noting that some of the more upmarket places have dress codes. Southgate provides the arts precinct with a strip of bars with riverside views. Entrance into most bars is free.

Melbourne is also well-known for its live music scene. There are plenty of places scattered around town with local and touring acts performing every night of the week. The live music caters to all genres, from rock, to blues, to latin, to jazz and anything in between. There are also lots of big name acts that come to Melbourne to perform at some of the larger venues.

Melbourne Bars and Nightclubs certainly won’t disappoint. They are everywhere, and you are sure to find one that caters for your requirements. For a fun night out, check out the incredibly long list of Melbourne Bars and Nightclubs.
