Our intimate bar and 50 seat theatre space is located down the Raglan St laneway in the heart of North Melbourne’s bustling arts precinct, where we have been providing alternative, eccentric & unique live performances for audiences since 2003. We are an integral part of Melbourne’s theatre culture; allowing performers and independent production companies to develop, workshop & perform new and established works in front of a live audience in a supportive environment.

Performance styles showcased at Club Voltaire have included Cabaret, Burlesque, Comedy, Live Music, Circus, Drag, Magic, Absurdist Theatre, Vaudeville, Surrealism, Expressionism, Avant-Garde, & Contemporary Dance.


Every night at Club Voltaire offers something profoundly different and highly original so if you’re looking for a great night out in Melbourne, or a venue to trial your new edgy show, then we invite you to join us at Club Voltaire
