Time Out Melbourne

A loud, proud Melbourne instiutution for over thirty dirty years

The traditional home of all things manly, sweaty, furry and leather clad, The Laird is not one for the faint-hearted, though its bark is definitely worse than its bite. In fact, the crowd in this VCAT-approved men-only joint is probably one of the friendliest on the scene, just don't expect any Kylie tunes. An excellent beer garden out back makes for perfect blokey afternoons, while the weekend often plays host to dance parties, and the first Monday of the month is their infamous Underwear Party. The real star of the show is Thursday night's strictly leather event, Spit n' Polish, complete with free buzz cuts.

Men only. VCAT A201/2010
