 Situated 5km from Melbourne’s CBD (6.6km to be exact) in the Jewel of the West, Footscray. We are surrounded by one of the most diverse communities in the world with strong Asian and African influences. We are an inclusive venue, we love Footscray and we love people. Our regulars have seen us morph from a chilled Café with Yoga, Belly Dance, African Drumming and Salsa with an Art Gallery,  to housing an independent live Theatre, now a chillaxed café and bar with live music, comedy, poetry and open mic.

We do coffee and drinks, day and night, and our own style of snacks.

7 days 360 days a year (come one even the big man had a break!)

Do we suit you?  Well if you have a pulse we suit you. If you have a heart, you suit us!

Come check us out and feel the love! It’s on the t-shirt and the heart is on our sleeve.

In Dog we trust!
