Vivid @ The Basement

The Basement takes it live from centre stage 6-7 nights of the week with acts including The Funkoars, Jane Tyrrell, Bad Plus and Miguel Zenon Quartet with Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra, Richard Bona, Kilter and more.

You can come along just for the music or you can make a proper night of it by taking in both dinner and show where, included in one price you get entry to some hot music, and an excellent 2 course meal (depending on the show mode). There are also great menus available at the Upstairs Bar, or downstairs at the newly renovated Green Room Bar if you’re feeling peckish! So, instead of worrying about whether you can manage to fit in a meal at a restaurant somewhere else and get to the show on time, you can make life and your evening simple by doing it all in one place.
 
If you want to know what’s on you can check it out here, email us at info@thebasement.com.au, or call us on 02-9251 2797.
