A little bit about your Speakeasy HQ Experience

Speakeasy HQ is proud to boast that it is the only vaudeville theatre to operate in Australia since the Tivoli closed in Bourke St in 1968. Vaudeville means short performances with a variety program. An average show at Speakeasy HQ will present up to a dozen artists that range from a stand up comedian, to a ballerina and a jazz act to a tap dancer. Speakeasy HQ currently presents fours days a week, on Thursday through to Sunday.

Entree sized tapas dishes are available for purchase from our bar, and our Candy Dolls serve delicious treats all night long!
