The Hummingbird Is Melbourne's Newest Live Music Venue
Located downstairs at The Newmarket Hotel, it'll host a huge array of local and international acts.
Less than a week after Melbourne was named the live music capital of the world, the city has scored itself yet another dedicated gig space, with The Hummingbird soon to launch downstairs at St Kilda's Newmarket Hotel.
Making its nest within the St Kilda pub from next month, the intimate band room is set to play host to a genre-tripping lineup of acts, from jazz and soul funk to R&B and even comedy.
The revamped space, brought to life by Heather Para, features a shiny new stage and sound system, a top-notch food offering from upstairs, and the kind of warm and friendly atmosphere we've come to expect from a great Melbourne live music venue.
It's all kicking off with one heck of an opening night celebration on May 2, featuring performances by the likes of DJ and PBS radio favourite MzRizk plus local jazz vocalist Alma Zygier, with MC duties by the loveable Bev Killick. Grab tickets online to be part of the launch celebrations.
The Hummingbird will host a bunch of shows each week, including two nightly shows on Fridays and Saturdays — a dinner-and-drinks show from 6-10pm, followed by a more dance-friendly situation from 10pm onwards.
Find The Hummingbird downstairs at The Newmarket Hotel, 34 Inkerman St, St Kilda from May 2.
