The Palais Theatre is one of Melbourne's most loved live performance venues presenting local and international acts.

The building, which retains all its original features is considered one of the finest examples of Art deco architecture in Australia and is on the Victorian Heritage Register.

The Palais Theatre is an iconic live performance venue with a 2,896 people capacity, making it Australia's largest, fully seated theatre.

It conducts over 100 events per year, ranging from live music, theatre, comedy, opera, ballet, film and other community events.

For over 90 years, the Palais Theatre has regularly hosted top musicians and performers, including the likes of Johnnie Ray, Bob Hope, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Al Green, Kenny Rogers, The Monkeys and UB 40, to name a few.

Palais Theatre's Bars are open from doors until the end of interval with a selection of food and beverages including sandwiches, soft drinks, snacks and ice-creams, a brand new coffee counter for your favourite hot drinks and our new central bar which is fully fitted out with beers on tap, wine, spirits and soft drinks.
