Mainly foreign students because of the two big universities near the city. Start from Flinders St/Fed Square and walk up Swanston St. Can get very busy, especially during summer – often very clicky groups. Open till 3 Free Entry - If you want somewhere where you cant fucking move, packed only with small tight nit social circles, that smells like crap, with shit music, and shit service, with the biggest fucking line wait in melbourne, head here Wink 3/10 - Vamped • Hawthorn – Cheap and cheerful, perfect for those who play footy, wear fluro or brightly coloured slogan t-shirts, dye their tips blonde and wear sharktooth necklaces. Crowd often come from Ringwood area, VERY young crowd often under 18 – especially Tuesday – gets pretty busy and can be a long line.
On that note I should add, while Melbourne's city centre is disproportionately Asian. Literally the entire city centre grid is awash with opportunities. University of Melbourne, Parkville (just north of city) You'll need to catch a tram here. • Nevermind – Originally a very attractive crowd, young and usually from the area, but seems to be declining as more people get onto it.
Sometimes some big acts play there (Grant Smillie, John Course and Pot Belleez). Thursday City • Seven – Just out of the city off St. Unlucky Thursday’s pulls a slightly watered down Indie/House crowd, much like you’d see on a Tuesday night at the Nevermind. Place gets fuckin PACKED, music is pretty standard stuff. And by young, i mean like be prepared for every 4th girl you meet to be fuckin 16..
Very attractive women, not so attractive music – trashy house and R’n’B beats. Had to great nights here, everyone was really friendly, good atmosphere.
Very exclusive and often hard to get into (although I’ve gotten in recently after they asked me if I was on a guestlist – and replied no – although I did get a look up and down).
(A bogan is an uneducated working class white drunkard whose probably fat and likes breaking other people's shit, Melbournians try to be as far from that as possible which is why we're awash with hipsters). I'm just going to dump a collaborative night game run-down here which I've contributed to (yes I'm underage, if that stops you from night gaming you need a better ID or Monday • Pugg Mahones (City) – Pulls a younger crowd. - If you want to get ridiculously trashed, head here.Free Entry • Electric Ladyland – Sometimes incorrectly called Electric Lady Lounge, its actually named after the last Hendrix Experience album me thinks. Plenty of 'couch time', don't come here to drink though, its certainly not cheap!• 161 – Used to be the place to be seen at on a Thursday.8/10 - Vamped Chapel Street • Lucky Coq – I really like this place, cheap Pizzas and a really unpretentious crowd, a good jumble of young and old – good beer on tap and chill tunes.Not the place to be if you’re after a massive night, but if you’re in good company you will have fun here. Its quite posh, you climb those massive stairs to get to a pretty cool looking joint.
