Well - less than a month to go and you better get in quick as the last week+ of sessions at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club are part of the 2015 Melbourne International Jazz Festival and will sell out fast. A club that caters to a...More

I'm so sad that Bennetts Lane will be closing in June 2015. This is a Melbourne institution where you will encounter a genuine passion for music. You can sit as close to the stage as you like and you will be surrounded by true music...More

feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
