History of the building?
Alia was open for eight years as a curved little lesbian bar and then shut down momentarily to await Bonny & Clyde.
How long have you been operating as Alia Art House?
It's been three stressful, beautiful and intoxicated weeks.
What do you feel is your major attraction?
A 4am license, great bands, three litre towers of James Squire, a great cocktail list, and a cosy environment for all.
What was your favorite show in recent memory and why?
The Grand Rapids show last Thursday blew my socks off. Inclusive of yummy visuals and all. It kicked off our first residency and is still on for thre more Thursdays.
Could you nominate a bartender of the month?
Dylan Jacobs for sure. He puts up with all my nonsense and pours a killer Whiskey Sour.
How many nights of live music & entertainment are running at your venue?
Thursday, Friday and Saturday baby!
Ways to get there?
The trusty 86, a Fitzroy bike (and basket), or take a lovely walk through the Carlton gardens down Gertrude St and come right on up our beckoning stairs.
Available for functions?
Definitely! Monday - Wednesday till 1am. And Sundays still hold a 4am license. It's a great space for any type of private or public function. We can roll up our blinds for city views and you can park your bottom in massive booths.
We want to get a mixed bag coming down to Alia Arthouse. Thrown in are the music lovers and band geeks, a few arty locals along with some well dressed suits and lovers of booths.
Thursday 8.30pm- 4am, Friday 7pm - 4am, Saturday 8.30pm - 4am.
Depends. Some nights are free entry. Others will be $5 after 10pm
So far our beer towers, our Spiced Mojito and our thriving live music.
