Dancing the Night Away in Melbourne

What could be better than dancing the night away with a group of your best friends? How about doing it while you're on holiday in an exciting city like Melbourne? If you are looking for a few fun places to practise your moves while visiting Melbourne, here are some venues you should definitely check out.


If you like shaking your hips to live music, you can't beat the relaxed and smooth vibe of Billboard. The venue is located on Russell Street, in Chinatown.

Billboard has hosted some big names in its day, including Tina Turner, Cut Copy and AC/DC. There are new bands coming all the time, so there's a good chance you and your friends will get to hear some great music while you dance about.

You can also enjoy a fantastic cocktail from one of the two bars at Billboard, or you can book some private time in the VIP room, which will certainly make for a glamourous night.

Sorry, Grandma!

This oddly named bar is a great place to visit, whether you want to bust a move on the dance floor or simply have some light conversation over a few drinks.

Local DJs make regular visits to this venue, which is located on Little Bourke Street. If you and your travel companions are real night owls, then this is the place for you - the bar is open on Saturday nights till "seriously late".

The Night Cat

If you're keen to have a big night out, then you simply must visit The Night Cat at some point during your evening. This is widely regarded as Melbourne's hottest dance club, with eclectic live music and a pumping dance floor.

Feel like adding a few new dance moves to your repertoire? You're in luck - the Night Cat offers Salsa lessons!
