1.   Lyrebird Lounge - Ripponlea

A short wander from Ripponlea train station, you’ll find this little honky tonk with live tunes playing most nights (Wednesday to Sunday).

  1. Elwood Lounge - Elwood

This retro bar is second home to most Elwood locales! A watering hole with modern Aussie pub fare and with an open sunny courtyard, enjoy weekend tunes from local music acts while sipping beers or playing pool with mates.

Known for outrageously fun themed parties and public holiday events, Riva St Kilda is a must-venue for live music. With regular Thursday and Sunday live music sessions, trending local and international DJs spin their decks here on the regular – keep updated with their event calendar for upcoming gigs.

  1. Lucky 13 Garage – Moorabbin

This once-working mechanic’s garage turned live music bar has rockabilly vibes with hanging music memorabilia and neon signs lighting up the joint. With live music from 9pm every Saturday, expect everything from blues, rock and classic pub tunes.
