The Gasometer Hotel isn't just one of Melbourne’s best-loved pubs. It’s also a crucial, bluestone pillar of the city’s live music scene, with a diverse weekly program of acts. Whether it’s rock, folk, indie or electronic, you’ll see and hear it at the Gaso.

Most of the action happens in the downstairs band room, a two-storey venue with room for 350 punters across the mezzanine and dance floor. Fitted with a state-of-the-art L’Acousics ARCS sound system, it's one of the city's best sounding rooms of its size.

Upstairs is an additional 90-person room, where you can reliably catch some of Melbourne's best upcoming talent in an intimate setting. Upstairs and downstairs are occasionally joined together for infrequent (but memorable) full venue events.

The welcoming public bar is also a magnet for good times any night of the week, with Mountain Goat and Moondog on tap, and a solid list of cocktails. The pub’s in-house restaurant, Wheat’s End, is also a destination for gluten-free dining. Head here for house-made falafel, pizza, loaded fries and soups before the gig.
