Time Out Melbourne

A small theatre in the heart of the CBD, The Butterfly Club features award-winning cocktail bars, an enormous collection of kitsch, and more shows than it's sensible or prudent to count. Known to performers the world over as Melbourne’s home of cabaret, it boasts many illustrious alumni, including Tim Minchin, Sammy J & Randy, Geraldine Quinn and Eddie Perfect. The club is also well-known to host budding cabaret talents before they hit the big time.

The Butterfly Club operates as a year-round arts festival, so it's perfectly ok to make visiting a habit. Its cosy nooks and couches are ideal for keeping warm and catching up with friends, the kitsch art on the walls makes it easy to keep the conversation going, and with up to fifty performances a week, a great show is never far away.
