Nightclub & Bar Review

The Esplanade Hotel, famously known as “The Espy”, is a Melbourne music icon that’s been rocking St. Kilda since 1878 and hasn’t missed a beat in over a century. Don’t let the age fool you - the Espy is a classic night out and a staple of Melbourne’s live music and good-time drinking scene.

The decor may not be ultra-luxury, and the drinks are pretty straight down-the-line, but the Espy always attracts a lively crowd of regulars, hip young-things who aren’t afraid to get their feet wet and those who jump at the chance to see some of Australia’s best established and up-and-coming talent.

Situated on the Upper Esplanade the view from the Espy is also a plus, but it’s the vibe inside that really puts it over the top. Not only a favourite with locals, The Espy is big with backpackers and in the know out-of-towners. There’s no dress code here (what a refreshing change!!), it’s always busy and there’s live music on every night of the week in the front bar and the Gershwin Room - famous for the number of big Australian bands that have proved their chops on the stage here.

Leave the high-heels at home, forget about making a scene on the dance-floor and swap your mojito for a JB & Coke - do a night at the Espy and you’ll know what it’s all about.
