Esplanade Hotel | The Espy

Esplanade Hotel | The Espy

The Esplanade Hotel will close its doors for major renovations Sunday, May 17 and will not reopen until summer.

For over 100 years the Esplanade Hotel has been Melbourne's (and indeed Australia's) premier live music venue.

Since the early days of string performances in the late 1800s the Espys hallowed stages have been graced by the finest performers from around Australia and the world.

Everyone from local legends like Paul Kelly and Dallas Crane to The Kills & Hot Hot Heat, Jet to John Farnham have performed at The Espy. International metal heavyweights Ed Guy and Deeds of Flesh and hip hop's finest such as DJ Cash Money, Steinski and Peanut Butter Wolf. Oz up and comers Wolfmother and Airbourne have also graced our stages.

And its not just live music, comedians like Dave Hughes, Rove and more cut their teeth at the Espy.

Truly a physical landmark in St Kilda, and a cultural icon to Australia, the Espy continues this long standing tradition of live music, on an average week the pub plays host to over 50 bands across 3 stages 7 days a week and alot of it free.

Known locally as the espy hotel.

A short tram-ride from the city (No.s 16 & 96) and ample street parking around the venue.
