Standing proudly above St Kilda's Lower Esplanade is this seriously impressive reminder of St Kilda's status as one of Melbourne's premier entertainment districts. The Palais Theatre — the largest fully seated theatre in Australia — is St Kilda's premier venue for live music, with some of the biggest names in international music having taken to the stage of the 1927 art deco icon.

Beyond music, the venue also hosts theatre, comedy, opera and ballet performances, with over 100 events taking place per year.

The building's former life as a picture house is evident in the intriguingly eclectic design, with influences said to span from Spanish baroque to neoclassical.
