The Butterfly Club This intimate theater, hidden at the end of a CBD laneway, is Melbourne’s unofficial home of comedy, cabaret, and burlesque. Open six days a week and with at least two shows every night, it’s an excellent place to catch raucous performances by rising stars—internationally renowned acts like Tim Minchin, Sammy J, and many more have all had early breaks here. The shenanigans on stage aren’t the only draw, however, as the Butterfly Club also has a famed foyer bar, outfitted with a colossal collection of kitsch. Be sure to come a bit before showtime, grab a drink, and explore all the curios and collectibles in this truly wondrous setting.
