Catch a gig at the Palais Theatre

Across the road from Luna Park, the Palais Theatre is St Kilda’s other iconic live-music venue. An Art Deco masterpiece built as a cinema in 1927, the Palais began inviting bands onto its stage during the 1950s, welcoming everyone from the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys to Tom Jones and Roy Orbison over the years. A 30-year restoration project began in 2017, cementing the 3,000-seat theatre’s place in Melbourne’s music scene for decades to come.
