Bird's Basement


Bird's Basement

THE ULTIMATE JAZZ ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE

Bird’s Basement is a live music venue, the home of Melbourne JAZZ.

Since it opening its doors, Bird's has been the host of music legends. Here music comes first, but the quality of food and service are a close second.

THE NEW YORK JAZZ SCENE NOW LIVES IN MELBOURNE

Birdland New York was known for being Charlie Parker’s resident jazz club in the 1950s, and of course, his namesake.

In addition to Bird, the club has been home to many famous Jazz musicians since its opening in 1949. As Alan Morrison, the long-time editor of Ebony magazine put it, “Birdland was both a cultural vantage point and a barometer of trends where all the big names in jazz performed”.

Melbourne is the first city to host a Birdland venture outside New York city. Bird’s Basement is already the stage of past, present, and future jazz legends.

INTIMATE CONCERTS & DINING

Bird’s Basement is tucked away in Singers Lane near the Flagstaff Gardens – nestled below The Jazz Corner Hotel, and nearby Brother Thomas café on William Street. This purpose built jazz basement has easy access by public transport, as well as a partnership with Secure Parking – The Mint- located at 383 Latrobe St. You may book online using Secure-a-Spot.
