Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
Cherry is pretty much the best rock n’ roll bar in the world. Cherry Bar was founded in late 1999, and is now located right in the heart of the Melbourne theatre district on Little Collins Street. A jewel in the junk heap or maybe an annoying boil on corporate arse cheeks? Despite its modest 260 capacity Cherry is an internationally famous late night street rock n’ roll bar. Quality local acts play live, then DJs keep the joint jumping till the wee hours. Cherry has become the destination for local, interstate and international bands to descend upon and party after they’ve finished playing live themselves. We don’t need to name drop. You never know who you might meet at Cherry.

One of my favourite places to go on a night out. Staff make a huge effort to make sure everyone feels welcome and they create a safe, but fun environment

My only issue is that I wish it was still located in AC/DC lane.

Great and accomodating to some of our last-minute changes, wouldn't mind some more stock of snack food but it didn't dampen our experience at all, the staff were really friendly and flexible, would definitely go back many times over

Cherry is always great, even with all the restrictions. Staff goes beyond to make sure we're comfortable and follow the rules :)
Didn't have food but cocktails are great. Can't wait to see the live gigs back again.
