The music scene on Chapel Street is world class & seeing music performed live will always be the best way to take it in. 

New and old. Whether you’re standing shoulder to shoulder, comfortably seated, or leaning up against the bar- there’s nothing like experiencing live music. To get you in the mood for a live gig or two, here’s a taste of the local favourites & places to let get a little wild.

Local Flavour

Galah has resident DJs on the one’s and two’s throughout the week, every week. Grab a small batch bottle from the shelves, scurry upstairs and take a sip (or ten) in a high-ceiling warehouse setting. This joint used to be a panel beater’s storage space, but you’d never guess looking at the leather and velvet upholstered booths or the sultry cocktail menu. Sip on an Aussie inspired aperitif – maybe the Outback Sheila (finger lime and saltbush margarita) and enjoy sweet sounds while the pro’s spin the night away.

216 High St, Windsor

You may have visited a million times before (most likely for a bevvy & cheap pizza) but time it right & you can treat your ears to some sweet tunes as well…

Lucky Coq is a local favourite for low-key vibes and a relaxed atmosphere. With their ‘always fun, always free’ motto, they’re entertaining locals pretty much every night of the week. A slew of hot DJs play electronic, throwback tunes, house, party, and even vinyl only old-school hip hop & RNB.

The Temperance Hotel is ‘Chapel Street’s Favourite Local’, even if they do say so themselves. Amongst a huge mix of entertainment options during the week, Thursday, Fridays and Sundays are when the live music springs to life.

Thursday Nights features Mr Cliff & Peron playing Live R’n’B and Soul from 5.30 pm.

Temperance Fridays is a little more Latin Focused with Latin house & reggaeton being played all night, plus $10 Cuba Libre and $15 Pisco Sours until late.

The Sunday arvo sessions go as follows: Luke Joseph Sounds from 2 pm followed by Jack And Jordan. Paired with the $25 Sunday Roast – roast of the day with all the trimmings with a pot of beer, pot of beer, cider or glass of wine.

Party Time

She’s a little dirty, but in all the right ways. With live music and resident DJ’s every weekend, Somewhere Bar have tunes pumping from sweet spinners like Finn OD, Teepee and Kong. Jump on it!

2/181 Chapel St, Prahran

They’re doing things a tad differently by bringing the party tunes ‘acoustic style’ early Saturday evenings, the Imperial uses live music to pump up the weekend’s biggest party night. DJs using sax and other live elements fill the dancefloor as the nights moves along, and everyone loves every single second.

522 Chapel St, South Yarra

Carpe Diem Bar has a ‘private party’ feel. It’s cool, small but roomy and fills up nicely with people and music!
With regular acoustic sessions, notably on Fridays, Carpe Diem (which, if you’ve seen Dead Poets Society, you know means ‘seize the day’ in Latin) is basically three little bars in one great venue.
