Melbourne's latest late-night music venue has made its home in the two-storey, 300-capacity Queensberry Street space once home to Yours & Mine. Colour comes to us from Liam Alexander and Benny Rausa, who have previously put their minds to long-running nightclub Lounge, music collective 6am at the Garage and one-day festival Something Unlimited.
The guys are out to unearth some of the vibrancy of Melbourne's glory days, at a time when live music spots and late-night haunts are dwindling. And, from the looks of it, they've got all the right tools to make good on those promises. The space has a state-of-the-art sound system, downstairs and upstairs, while a first-floor band room boasts space for up to six-piece acts. The venue has also been jazzed up with new furniture, fresh lighting and a healthy splash of colour.
The club's opening lineup of natural wine launches, club nights and parties by the name of Neurotiq Erotiq and Club D'erange is an offering that's set to blossom when teamed with Colour's 24-hour licence, which it can tap weeklong — except for between 7 and 10am Sundays. The venue's set to operate as a bar and band room from 5pm Wednesdays and Thursdays, kicking into club mode on Fridays and Saturdays from 9pm.
