The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Fitzroy
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.

One of Fitzroy's most iconic live music venues!
Mar 2018 • Friends
Located in the heart of Fitzroy, The Night Cat is the perfect venue for live music supporters who wish to check out some of the finest acts in town. The 360 degree stage and the ample dancing space make this club ideal for both, those who enjoy a boogie and those who just love to watch musicians do their thing.
The wide selection of spirits, wine and beer in conjunction with the stylistically diverse acts will leave you spoilt for choice!
If planning a night out in Melbourne, checking out The Night Cat is a must. My favourite night? Their Salsa Sundays - Domingo Latino!

My favourite club in Melbourne. Super musicians bringing great, jumping, pumping live music to Fitzroy. Funky decor. Fantastic crew. Happy, beautiful people playing until they're satisfied...ALWAYS.

Dance the night away
Apr 2017 • Couples
As probably the oldest person in the premises I am usually daunted by such places which impacts on my ability to enjoy myself without looking foolish.
The Night Cat is full of 20 somethings mainly, with the odd 'older' patron looking to 'mingle'. I hasten to add I was mingling with my wife.
A great atmosphere is kept going by the DJ when the excellent band isn't playing. Think rapping Cat Empire and you are in the right ball park.
The $5 entry fee is new, but they have to pay for the ever present Security team somehow.
By the way, no one took any notice of the old guy in the corner moving to the groove and I had a good time.

good venue, security are massive arselochs
Sep 2016 • Couples
the security at this place is so absolutely intrusive that you have no chance to actually enjoy yourself... want to have a cigarette outside? prepare to be inspected everytime you come back inside, and sometimes arbitrarily refused entry back in, even though your stuff is in there, if they decide they don't like the look of you. seriously, the bouncers are massive arselochs and just avoid this place like the plague.
its like they have never passed an RSA, or they have, and have decided to enforce it super-super keenly. Screw this joint, its the pits.
first post reviewing a joint (because mainly i don't care that much) but this place was bad enough to warrant it. AVOID!!!!

Our bouncers are instructed to look for people that are too hammered to come in to the venue, even if they have just left for a cigarette. People hate being rejected when they have already paid their entry fee and we hate doing it but it's the law. Sorry!

Upset
Jul 2016 • Friends
I'm so upset with myself for not knowing about this place. Always lineups but I never investigated it. From the security at the door to barstaff to the fantastic band.
The layout of the room and the different lighting was very special. I felt like I'd stepped into another world.
I won't talk to much about the band except to say ever single member was on point and the crowd acted accordingly. Simply amazing.
