Sounds about right other RTD's are a ripoff i mean a six pack of bacardi and coke cans is almost $20. Thumbdown

Was that Prince by any chance? Sounds about right.

Nah, I had to go, it was sort of like a high school reunion get together thing. I did get smashed beforehand, but will the limited funds that I had, I sobered up pretty quickly. Still was a good night.

As for walking home, I've walked from Malvern Station to South Yarra Station and that was a journey, but I wasn't going to walk home on a Saturday night, would have taken hours. Plus, I needed to get home ASAP, I wanted to be right for the Saints vs. North game.
holy shit malvern to south yarra would of taken bloody ages!

longest ive walked is from oakleigh to caulfield and that was fkn hell

Yeah mate it was. It's the third time I've been their. It's an OK club, but extremely overrated for mine. I got rejected three times before I got in haha, one of my mates couldn't get in until 1am. I got in at like 10:30. You been their many times??

Haha yep. I walked with a mate to South Yarra because we were supposed to be staying at another mates house. When we got their, no one was home, so we had to camp at South Yaara Station from around 3am to 5:30am in the freezing cold. Then we fell asleep on the train and luckily I woke up at our stop, otherwise we'd have ended up somewhere near Frankston haha.

I've been there a few times and I hate it. Entry is ridiculous, drinks are way over the top, the music is shit, the place is full of wankers and you have to line up to get onto the balcony. I can't think of any redeeming features.

Agree with these three. The music is pathetic, I danced for 10 minuted and I thought to myself, fuck that haha. The line for the smokers deck isn't that bad, maybe 5 mins MAX. As I said, to me it's an OK club, but for me Room 680 has been the best I've been too. Only thing is it's so far away.

I hate how everyone is like ONE LOVE ZOMG but really just pushing play on the latest Ministry of Sound annual doesn't make you a DJ.

Room is okay, but I'm not a huge fan. Not really down for that type of place I'm more into indie places so yeah Room is kind of not my scene. Perhaps it's why I don't like Prince. It is very popular, I might be missing something.

You're not. Although i have been to Room a few times and did have a good time, though it has never been really packed when i went there.

I stick to the smaller (still well known though) bars and pubs around the city and brunswick st. really, although most of them are becoming apartments these days.

Yeah Brunswick street is great, it has a better feel (fewer pills going around) and most places don't have a cover charge, and the music is better than dance clubs for the most part.

Yeah exactly what I thought as well. On Prince, I don't think you're missing anything to be honest. What Clubs do you go to?

I've been to Room once and loved it. Was so packed as well. On Brunswick St, I've never been their at night, but I've heard Sorry Grandma is good. Been there?

There are a couple of streets in Melbourne where you can find a lot of bars and Clubs, like Brunswick St., Chapel St., Fitzroy St., Sydney Rd, Glenferrie Rd (i think) and im sure there are other places i forgot, they all have different vibes too and there are of cause bars and clubs spread throughout the city.

I think you would be a brunswick st. man afc.

Yeah it's open until 10am, but as I said I've never been so not sure how much entry is if at all or if it's in the City or actually in Brunswick. But I'm going to give Brunswick St a visit pretty soon, I'm starting to get a little sick of Chapel and Fitzroy St.

Yeah Glenferrie Rd has Pubs and Clubs as well. That's where Room is, right next to Glenferrie Statin, and also Cheers is on Glenferrie Rd as well I believe.

Sorry Grandma is on King St. in the city and it goes alright, fairly good place with good vibe and they play kind of indie dance I suppose you could call it. They have a few rooms so there's a bit of variety. It's $20 entry or $15 with a list so it's a bit on the expensive side and they don't have tap beer but the stubbie prices aren't too bad though they're not cheap. The crowd is pretty good too, fairly friendly place when I've been, and while there are some pills and stuff going around I've never had any trouble.

Personally, I favour the Brunswick St. crawl, heaps of bars and such that you can wind up in along there, as for the city, I spend a fair bit of time at Eurotrash, though that's moving up in the world and getting a bit pricey these days. WOW is good too for indie music and fairly competitive prices. I tend to enjoy places where I know people who are there, there is somewhere like a smoking area where you can chat without the music being too loud and the prices aren't prohibitive. Also fewer pills and better music is a plus. I prefer indie places to places that play dance music.

Eurotrash, used to smash that place back in the day, Tuesday night basically meant Eurotrash, wednesday meant a eurobomb hangover. Last time i went there, a few months ago, i felt like the oldest person in the place.

Yeah it used to be kind of unknown but when it got popular, they bumped the prices up. I remember the days of free entry on Saturdays (I'm talking like early last year) and these days it's $15. Still a cool place though.

OK, sounds pretty good though. I know a few people that have been and they say it's pretty good. Got to go to WOW as well, I've heard mixed things about it.
