Most Melburnians have walked past the Nicholas Building dozens if not hundreds of times. The 90-year-old edifice is a Swanston Street institution, home to artists, makers, designers and local businesses from all around town. For one night only, you can take in everything it has to offer, from its art deco arcade on up.
From 5–9pm on Thursday June 22, A Night at the Nicholas invites punters to explore the historic building and get to know its eclectic tenants. Take in new exhibitions at BLINDSIDE and Kimono House, attend the launch of Gayelene Carbis' Anecdotal Evidence at Collected Works Bookshop, and pick up some handcrafted jewellery from Victoria Mason's studio. Boutique retailers including Kuwaii, Obus, and Vintage Sole will also be hawking their wares throughout the night.
Entry will be by gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to the Nicholas Building Association. You'll also be able to purchase refreshments on the night.
