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. Here are a few of our favourite Chapel Precinct gig spots.

A theatre and music powerhouse in the heart of the precinct. Chapel Off Chapel has been producing and presenting innovative and incredible independent and professional theatre, live music, jazz, comedy, cabaret, dance and art for years.

There’s something different to watch every week of the year.  Musicians love playing here for the setting in the glorious, intimate chapel – the natural, beautiful acoustics, the right there with you audience set-up, and just the feels, you know?

Put it this way, Coldplay and Foo Fighters have played here. If you haven’t taken in a live show at Chapel Off Chapel, you might not be fully aware of what’s on your doorstep!

12 Little Chapel St, Prahran

The tunes flow as freely as the beers at Melbourne’s original Irish pub. But don’t be put off by the ‘Irish pub’ title – the live music pumps all weekend in the classic ‘pub acoustic’ style. It’s not all laid back, you can also catch one of the most successful cover bands in Melbourne, the legendary Adam 12 upstairs! With live music, four nights a week, ‘Bridie’s’ is a pure pub, in every sense of the word.

Revs is a local legend for a reason, and live music is part of the story. Live music and DJs pump out tunes almost all week long. Revolver is a melting pot of musical styles, with original live music from up and coming rock bands, great tunes in the back bar and bangin’ beats ‘in the cage and on the stage’. Take a risk, head to an album launch, grab the band’s new single and discover some of the most interesting music Melbourne has to offer.

229 Chapel St, Prahran

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.

179 Chapel St, Windsor

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.

426 Chapel St, South Yarra

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

Chasers has been operating as a music destination for almost 40 years and is one of Melbourne’s most loved venues with a 24 hour licence. Live events can cater up to 700 people standing or 300 seated. A D&B PA system has been installed, lighting has been updated and a new stage has been fitted. The iconic Saturday club night “Poof Doof” continues, however the other six nights a week are open to host events and live music as Three Eight Six.
