One of Melbourne’s best live music hotspots, Bird’s Basement has been spreading the good vibes since 2016. Even though it is known for its live jazz scene, all sorts of musical acts grace the halls of this basement venue. They host live music Wednesday through to Sunday so you’ll be sure to catch a gig on your off night.

Dinner is available to those who purchase dinner tickets, but it’s worth the extra spend. The menu has a strong Italian influence, with all the pasta and sauces made in-house. Recommendations include the succulent salt and pepper calamari and the hearty lamb ragu, both are sure to fill you up perfectly. Once you’ve filled up your regular stomach, it’s time to get your dessert stomach ready with some delicious Italian sweets. Crepes, tiramisu, gelato and panna cotta await you for your post-show fill.

They offer an extensive bar and drinks menu, with an abundance of wines, both international and local, to choose from. Their beer selection is also generous, on tap and bottled. The highlight of the drinks menu is their house cocktails. Each is named after and inspired by a jazz legend and aims to mirror the traits and qualities of their namesake. Choose your cocktail by the ingredients, or take a shot in the dark and choose just based off of your favourite jazz musician! Either way, you’ll be in for a treat.

Tickets to the venue vary depending on the artist/band that’s performing and the area where you’d like to sit. Seats are organised on a first-come, first-served basis so arrive early to get the best seats! If you want to see who’s performing, all the information is located on Bird’s Basement’s website here.

As one of the best live venues in town, Bird’s Basement is home to iconic musicians, delicious food, inspired drinks and the best service. If you’re ever in Melbourne and are hankering for live music, look no further than this underground gem.

Address: 11 Singers Ln, Melbourne
