The 86

The 86 is a rather new addition to the Smith Street nightlife. With its appearance on the scene, so too comes a large dose of cabaret, live music, stand-up comedy and some mischievous debauchery. Just about every day of the week, The 86 plays host to all manner of live performances, ranging from cabaret to jazz and from burlesque to stand-up. On the weekend after the curtain's drawn though, the vibe turns into that of a dance floor, with DJs spinning into the early hours of morn. For those hunting for a slightly more out-of-the-ordinary function venue, the 86's dining booths sit over 40 with food available from the popular Coconut Palms restaurant next door. Additionally, if entertainment is needed for a birthday, corporate function or otherwise, a host of cabaret or burlesque options are available to make an event a little more decadent and exciting. Booths are available to reserve for smaller groups during shows, of the four- or eight-seater varieties. The 86 is located along Smith Street in Fitzroy, near the intersection of Charles Street. The (you guessed it) 86 tram stops directly in front of it. Being in the middle of the Smith Street action, the 86 is close to Brunswick and Gertrude streets, as well as a short ride from the CBD.
