The Butterfly Club is a small theatre in the heart of Melbourne. We have plenty of shows, award-winning foyer bars, and an enormous collection of kitsch.
The Piano Men
An exploration into the unknown stories of historic women pianists, from a successful Australian piano woman, Emma Knights.
Hold My Hummus
Chasing a dream is never easy, and Lauren Lee Innis-Youren is no stranger to being told her dreams are impossible.
Inspired by her own experiences on the psychologist's sofa, the show features original music and adept vocal performances by Ashton Turner, who allows the audience a peek inside her messy brain
The Big HOO-HAA!
Fast, furious and funny, The Big HOO-HAA! is Melbourne's longest-running and best-loved weekly impro comedy show. This is a popular show in a tiny theatre: book ahead.
A singer, a contemporary dancer and a burlesque artist walk into a room. The director has escaped from the circus. The MC is nowhere to be seen. It's cabaret...kind of. With donuts.
Our weekly piano bar featuring some of Melbourne's best entertainers. Did we mention it's every Friday?
Saturday Piano Bar
Every Saturday night from 10pm come join us and our most wonderful host for a night of singing and merriment in the free Saturday Piano Bar.
The Handsome Jack Experience
Dashing male model turned master magician, Handsome Jack has gone from impossibly good-looking to simply impossible.
Celebrating 20 years!
Join us for a drink, a show, or both. Or several of both.
Established in 1999 the Club is the best place to see young rising stars, household names, and the odd big fancy superstar who misses the feeling of performing to an intimate crowd.
We have between two and eight shows every night, our program changes weekly, new shows come up daily, and it’s perfectly ok to make visiting a habit.
Our bars serve award-winning cocktails in rooms decked out by an enormous collection of kitsch.
Producers, we want your shows.
With over 1100 performances every year, we are always on the lookout for new shows. If you are a producer (or self-produced artist) we’d love to hear from you.
With no minimum hire fee, free rehearsals, free front-of-house, free merch sales, and other assorted perks, the Club is a great place to get your work on stage without breaking the bank.
Give your friends the choice to come see any one show (regardless of ticket price) and pick a drink from our menu. At $50 per person, it's a great way to give people you love a night they'll love.
