Audiences love Chapel Off Chapel for many reasons – friendly staff, a fully licensed bar, foyer and courtyard, and the excitement of getting up close and personal with the arts. These all combine to keep locals and visitors alike returning again and again. This highly respected and renowned venue just off Chapel Street in Prahran is a veritable institution for the arts in Melbourne.
Housed in a former church, it presents a well-rounded programme of cabaret, theatre, comedy, dance and visual art. The venue has hosted artists such as Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Tripod, and musicals including The Colour Purple, Rent and Blood Brothers. Chapel Sessions, the venue’s signature live music series, launched in January 2016 with intimate performances featuring members of some of the country’s biggest bands from the last 25 years.
