OPEN HOURS

WE’RE OPEN:
Monday & Tuesday: 5pm – 1am
Wednesday – Saturday: 12pm – 1am
Sunday: 12pm – 11:30pm.

PROOF OF AGE

If you look under 18 yrs of age you will only be permitted on the licensed venue if you have an evidence of age document recognised by the legislation verifying that you are 18 years of age or older.

An evidence of age document is a Proof of Age Card, a driver’s licence issued in Australia irrespective of State or Territory, a Victorian Learner’s Permit, a Keypass or an Australian Passport or a foreign passport which attests to the fact that the holder is 18 years of age or older. No other form of evidence is recognised by the legislation as proof that the person is 18 or older.

You should be aware that even if you look 25 our security may still ask for an evidence of age document as a matter of caution in order to be 100% satisfied that you are indeed 18 years of age or older.

A New Zealand driver’s licence by its nature is not issued in Australia and is therefore not an evidence of age document. A New Zealand passport is an evidence of age document.
