Best place to spend your Sunday afternoon listening to old timers like the Heinous Hound band and many more. Nice atmosphere in a nice graffiti area in CBD. Worth your visit!

More rock bar than this does not matter, live music at large every night is also on classic AC / DC LAne with all its wall paintings by legendary artists. Dessuto organizes Cherry Bar every year rock festival Cherry Rock in May.

You can't visit Melbourne (being s rock n roll fan) without visiting here at least one night. The edge is raw and bands are great. It's located down a graffiti covered ally off Flinders Lane which adds to the experience. Must do

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
