No solos, no microphones, no auditions, and no show ponies – just a big group sing of some of the best pop music on the planet.

Celebrating 20 years!
Join us for a drink, a show, or both. Or several of both.
Established in 1999 the Club is the best place to see young rising stars, household names, and the odd big fancy superstar who misses the feeling of performing to an intimate crowd.
We have between two and eight shows every night, our program changes weekly, new shows come up daily, and it’s perfectly ok to make visiting a habit.
Our bars serve award-winning cocktails in rooms decked out by an enormous collection of kitsch.
Producers, we want your shows.
With over 1100 performances every year, we are always on the lookout for new shows. If you are a producer (or self-produced artist) we’d love to hear from you.
With no minimum hire fee, free rehearsals, free front-of-house, free merch sales, and other assorted perks, the Club is a great place to get your work on stage without breaking the bank.
Give your friends the choice to come see any one show (regardless of ticket price) and pick a drink from our menu. At $50 per person, it's a great way to give people you love a night they'll love.
