Melbourne is spoilt for choice when it comes to online Dining & Drink Guides
We make it easy for you to find Melbourne's hidden and secret bars. Many new bars and nightclubs have opened recently and some even have free internet access where you might find some of the OnlyMelbourne staff working away.
Go here for Bars and Clubs Guides.
This Saturday at Bar Altitude is Dirty Disco a night geared to a cheeky-but- friendly, up-for-it crowd, combining sexy, dirty house music in an intimate & comfortable environment.
It's a Saturday night party that will enforce a strict but fair membership base aimed at attracting a large female clientele who'll be provided with a safe and fun place to be each and every week.
Dirty Disco is what Our city's scene has been missing! A place where you can go to express yourself without the hassles or worries you might be subjected to at other venues. Clubbing is, and always has been, about escapism, freedom and enjoyment. Going out in Melbourne has been getting too serious over the past few years; Dirty Disco is all about putting the FUN back in to going out again!
