Once upon a time there was a cocktail bar and nightclub in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD called ‘StoryVille’… Styled around childhood fables that we know and love, this fairy tale themed venue offers a truly unique and whimsical experience for those who dare to roam throughout its rooms.

During the week, the Mushroom Palace Cocktail bar, with glowing toadstools sprouting from the walls and chilled out atmosphere, makes an ideal drop in for after work drinks. Take the edge off with one of our signature cocktails, or simply relax with an ice cold beer or glass of Pinot Gris.

On weekends the StoryVille team keep the party going ‘til late with two floors of music and entertainment. From the moment you step through the door into this noir fantasy you’ll discover a world of nostalgia and wonder, where anything is possible.

Climb the Enchanted Tree to the Mushroom Palace and Birdcage or travel onwards to the fantasy world of Tolkein in the Hobbit House Bar, Narnia and The Library ~ complete with a wall of giant books.

Music is supplied by some of Melbourne’s well established DJs plus interstate guests, who spin tunes from an ink pot-shaped station. The dance floor fills to a range of sounds such as soulful vocal/funky house~ climbing to deep & tech house through to the wee, small hours.

In the end, the quote over the door sums it up best: “Buy the ticket, take the ride…” (Hunter S Thompson).

So, come one, come all to the fairy tale that is StoryVille.
