Open Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays from 5pm is a performance venue & cocktail bar with a mission to support and foster emerging and established cross artform and performance artists, with in-kind contributions to stage events that otherwise may not have access to ticketed audiences.

Founded in 2014 in an underground garage and terrace house in Chippendale, the venue has hosted hundreds of events spanning live visual storytelling, original Australian pop & electronic music, spoken word, animation, multimedia and virtual town halls.
