Time Out Melbourne

Cherry Bar is rock and roll. Period. The hallowed ground of all Melbourne's headbangers, it's even located on AC/DC Lane, just in case you missed the point. Just follow the trail of the graffiti-strewn walls and edge your way past the scary-looking bouncers.

Any band worth their skinny jeans and black tees has earned their stripes on this grimy stage, thrashing their guitars within an inch of their lives. Let your hair down here and your ear drums will never be the same again.

In Cherry anything goes, as long as it goes with Jack Daniels. It's friendly and a just a little bit sexy.
