The Prince Bandroom has served up big names and big tunes to the voracious appetites of the denizens of Melbourne for more than 60 years.
Over these many decades, it has drawn names like Lenny Kravitz, Ben Harper, Pink and Coldplay to the seaside suburb of St Kilda.
To this day, the Prince Bandroom hosts legendary and soon-to-be-legendary musicians on its stage. British hip-hop star Tinie Tempah and Australian RnB songstress Thandi Phoenix can be seen on the gig list, along with hard rock legends Skid Row and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
If you want to grab a meal before seeing a show, the thriving music venue is connected to the Prince of Wales Public Bar. The menu at the Prince of Wales has tasty titbits like Macaroni cheese balls with smoked mayo and substantial meals like lamb shanks and chicken parmesan.
On Mondays from 6pm onwards, you can catch $2.50 pots and $10 jug drink specials. Tuesday features $3 pots and $5 basics from 6pm.
The Prince of Wales Public Bar also has a live music programme. The shows there, however, are free - unlike the performances on its big brother's stage.
St Kilda has been the heart of Melbourne's bohemian culture for three generations and has been a multicultural refuge for artisans, musicians and misfits, so there's no shortage of quirky restaurants and offbeat bars surrounding The Prince Band Room.
