Passionfruit Pulp
Melbournes ultimate nightclub destination has landed, Palace Theatre "FORMERLY METRO", is re-opening its doors to a brand new Saturday night, Eskimo Saturdays. Be there when doors open at 9pm, to experience what Melbourne has been missing for way to long. Bringing you everything from Melbourne Coverband 'Passionfruit Pulp', to slamming Commercial House and R & B. Turn back the clock upstairs with a dedicated Retro Room up on the 3rd floor. Launching Late October, Eskimo Saturdays will give you what you want, when you want it, every Saturday night. Watch this space for exact launch dates and Club Specials from the very first night. See you all at Eskimo!!!!

Eskimo, Mon Sep 22 04:12:28 2008
It seems that the Palace Theatre (ex Metro, now owned by the former owners of The Palace in St Kilda) might be opening up as a club on Saturday nights again after all. Something to do with Eskimo. We'll keep you posted.

Nicole, I didn't go in, but Metro had a huge queue on Saturday. I know it was
very busy inside, but it was a special event. Other reports on this site tell us
that its general going well.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Thu Aug 24 05:58:27 2006

Does anyone know how to get onto a Guestlist??
NICOLE, ELWOOD, Wed Aug 23 15:41:32 2006
Well, it's definitely back, live and kicking. I went there sat night and the
line went around the corner down an alley. I gave up on waiting and went to a
nearby pub instead.
TrannyBoy, Fri Aug 11 23:32:40 2006
Last week, Curious asked if Metro was reopening. We found something in The Age
about that, saying it was. After a lot of digging around, we're told it did open
on Saturday. A very low key reopening, but apparently it went okay. It was only
in the main room. If anyone was there or is promoting the place, please let us
know about it.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Thu Jul 20 06:18:25 2006

Pharmacy & Deep Dish for the next few months.

Metro was the final destination for night. I love this place. It is sooo grand,
and has the sort of presence that only the world's great venues can have. The
DJs were up on stage for a nice change, and cranked out the hits. The Wickid
Force Breakers did a fine job too.
The rebar was home to karaoke. All the photos will be up very shortly.

Ventured to Metro for the first time in ages. I love that place. First club I
ever liked. It is one of the grandest venues on the planet. Definitely worth a
look if you haven't been there because it is world-class.
Saturday was pretty good. Downstairs was very busy (and an attractive crowd)
with DJ greats like Piero and Phil Ross and a good MC calling the shots.
Upstairs was a bit quieter for the trial of the two rooms of house tunes
(although the Gods Bar was verging on techno). Those rooms should build as word
gets out.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Tue Sep 9 09:16:24 2003

Stevo, Camberwell, Sat Mar 1 00:21:00 2003
Easily the biggest, and one of the best nights in Melbourne, Pop has something
for everyone. The place, as you all know, is absolutely massive - if it's your
first time, then it will take your breath away, believe me!
Recently, the crowd has started thinning a bit, which is good because there's
more room on the dancefloor... but summer is approaching and pretty soon the
place is gonna be kicking. With one of Melbourne's best young coverbands
(Slumberyard), pumping R&B, a breathtaking laser show all night long... along
with just about everything else, Metro is definitely the place to be on Saturday
For free entry b4 midnight, and half price thereafter, say you're on DAVID
GOODWIN'S guestlist. See you there.
David Goodwin, Werribee, Sat Nov 16 00:01:40 2002

Finally, Pop is back to where it ought to be, at the top of the Melbourne nightclub tree. Since QBH closed its regular nights, Metro has more than bounced back. The addition of great young band Load, giving DJ Pierro (the best DJ in Melbourne in my view) a longer stint, and the return of RnB to the Gods Bar have also worked wonders. The place is packed once again, and it is a fairly well dressed, good sort of crowd. Believe it or not, there is a fair cross over with the Monday Bobby's crowd. Gotta love that.

Pop is one of the icons of Melbourne night clubbing, and is to nightclubs what the MCG is to sports fields. There would hardly be an experienced clubber that has not stepped foot in our beloved Metro at one stage or another. If you are the one who has never been to Metro, then this weekend is a good time to change that.

An original 1995 Pop passMetro used to be a theatre, and thus, it is absolutely huge (I am fairly sure it was the biggest club in the southern-hemisphere before QBH, and in the top two or three in the world), with numerous rooms. These include the main room, which is the biggest dancefloor anywhere, with DJs playing pop/party and retro; the rebar - a restaurant bar with heaps of tables and great cover band Load, supported by DJ Tom of Goo fame; the Gods Bar with a deep RnB mix from a smooth DJ. There are other areas dedicated as ‘chill-out’ spaces, with heaps of seating, pool tables, video games, and plenty of bars. The main room even has a huge stage which is sometimes graced by a touring artist.

The main room is something else. It is not just the size of it, but the effects and sounds blow you away. The crowd really react to the music. The light show incorporates everything including video screens and lasers. The down-side is that unless the stage is open, the dancefloor packs up, and you cannot move, which defeats its purpose. The main bars are also usually overcrowded, but the other bars are usually available.

Get funding for your clubThe crowd is very mixed, full of new clubbers aged 18 to 19, but with plenty of 23-25 year olds. This tends to mean people are finding their feet, and seem to be fairly nervous. It builds up fairly early. The dance floors stay at capacity, but there is very little meeting as people stay in their groups. Dress varies markedly with good jeans the order of the night for guys.

Prices are average for drinks, and the cover charge is reasonable for the entertainment provided.

I love Metro, it is like home. I find the music in the main room to be slightly over-mixed, although it is all POPular, and most people could not care less. There is little space on the dancefloor, and the crowd is a little young and unconfident. Having said that, though, it is the ideal place to start as they play something for everyone, and the entertainment is quite good. Even if you have been around clubs, it is a great place to check out, as it is something special.
