The Butterfly Club is a small theatre in the heart of Melbourne. We have plenty of shows, award-winning foyer bars, and an enormous collection of kitsch.
Innes vs Lloyd
Comedy duo Innes Lloyd bring their unique brand of wit, charm and humour to their all new show...but this time it's mate against mate, chum against chum, pomp against circumstance.
From: New York, For: Him
Melissa David stars in a Rom-Com cabaret date night. A love story brought to you courtesy of Donald Trump's immigration policy.
The Big HOO-HAA!
Fast, furious and funny, The Big HOO-HAA! is Melbourne's longest-running and best-loved weekly impro comedy show. This is a popular show in a tiny theatre: book ahead.
Make Believe - Children's songs for grown-ups
Like the lovechild of Noni Hazelhurst and your drunk uncle, children's entertainer David Salter sings and slurs his way through a songbook of nostalgic favourites in this adults-only cabaret.
Our free weekly piano bar featuring some of Melbourne's best entertainers. Did we mention it's free?
I'm Not A Monster
From the brilliant mind of James Seamark, an award winning Melbourne playwright, this edgy theatre piece plays with themes that are dark, confronting and taboo.
Funny Music Mondays
Comedy rock duo PickUp hosts a new line-up every week. Entry is free and the bar is open throughout. If it’s funny and it’s musical; it’s here.
May Contain Traces of Reading
A stand-up comedy. Without a single spoken word.
You are a great listener.
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.
