Shaw Davey Slum
Shaw Davey Slum takes a corner pub spot fixture in Carlton and transforms it into a colourful, mischievous homage to the swinging 60s, celebrating Australian culture. The venue's name is based on a poverty report written in 1958 by two commissioners named Shaw and Davey about Carlton and the surrounding areas.
A sprawling bar, the Shaw Davey Slum wholeheartedly embraces weekend fun, good food, good drinking, and the good times synonymous with 60s pop-culture. In other words, it’s a stellar venue for a function or celebration. Downstairs in the main bar and dining room, the Shaw Davey Slum serves up good pub fare and specials throughout the week (especially attractive no doubt, to the University of Melbourne crowd). The walls are brightly coloured and cheery, all paisley and flowers and purple lights. Upstairs one finds a rooftop space, with a retractable cover above to ensure Melbourne’s unreliable weather never dampens a party mood. The upstairs space also doubles as a private function space - think end of year parties, end of semester celebrations, and milestone birthdays. The Shaw Davey Slum is found on the corner of Elgin Street and Drummond Street, Carlton. A short walk from Melbourne University, there’s quick access to the 1, 8 and 96 tram lines - making it easy to head back into the city or out into the inner north.
