The Workshop is Melbourne's newest hidden gem.
Opened in January 2006, The Workshop not only boasts one of Melbourne's most intriguing new bar designs, but is also a perfect illustration of Melbourne's notorious underground cultural scene.
Developed from the shell of an old motorcycle repair shop, old relics of its past can be found in every corner. Although it has the capacity to rock with over 250 people, you will still enjoy finding your way through its nooks and crannies and staking your claim on one of the many small private spaces within.
The Workshop is a visual head on collision of raw industrial materials and Melbourne's cosmopolitan culture. It seems to entwine the rough and unrefined with classic Melbourne chic and style, leaving a venue that can accommodate just about anyone.
Featuring a large, second floor, open air decking overlooking the city lights, The Workshop is perfect for a summer afternoon or a big night with all your friends.
Dj's and live MC's get the makeshift dance floor crankin' from Wednesday through to Sunday, and with regular and random appearances by live bands, break dancers, or spontaneous BBQ's in our beer garden, you never really know what you are going to get till the minute you walk in.
But Workshop is not just another city bar. Operating as a Cafe through the day serving lunch and Brunswick St style coffee, The Workshop is a great place to enjoy your afternoon while listening to great tunes and taking advantage of our free high-speed wireless Internet connection.
Furthermore, its monthly art exhibitions showcase some of Melbourne's best up and coming young street artists, which undoubtedly help maintain the venue's raw and distinctive quality.
Workshop is one of the most competitively priced venues within the CBD in its category, while still showcasing an impressive range of imported beers and specialized liquors, including new concoctions all the time. Open seven days a week from before noon till 3am on most nights, it is unquestionably worth hunting down and checking out for yourself.
The Workshop is located at 413 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, on the corner of A'Beckett Street (entrance on A'Beckett Street).
