Went to Seven on Thursday night, wasn't bad. The only thing I want to warn
people about is the fact that their website is wrong. It's not free entry
before $10, it's $7 entry. My girls and I went expecting free entry and were
greeted with a $7 charge at the door :(. Cheap drinks though.
Sandy, Bentleigh East, Fri Dec 1 22:26:44 2006
hot women cheap drinks all round great place no hassles getting in and free
entry before ten can get expensive on other nights
E, Sandringham, Thu Sep 21 04:01:01 2006
Bronwyn, I get the feeling you either haven't been to Seven for a while and are
basing your comments on your experience of the club fromn a few months ago, or
your involved with the management in some way, or, perhaps, you're just a plain
old moron.
John, Kew, Thu Sep 7 17:45:11 2006
Cheap drinks, open lists, lots of friends that go there most weeks, great place
to catch up with ppl on a weekly, fortnightly or even monthly. Great music,
different rooms something for everyone and retro music which is great to dance
to when your in a fun mood

Justine, Kew, Thu Feb 9 01:35:06 2006
To anyone having difficulty getting into seven later on at night just find out
any of the top promoters names and say your on their list...they dont actually
check as most of these guys dont even put in these the way if you
finished school over two years ago seven on thurs is a no no, seeing that the
majority of ppl there are either still in school or just out ps. guys if your
in groups split up and try to go in with girls you will double your chances of
getting in when it is really busy
Rich, Fri Nov 4 17:59:56 2005
i got my photo taken at seven last week, anyone know where i can find the pics

jess, Wed Oct 19 21:53:35 2005

Take the advice of everyone, GET THERE EARLY!!! I rocked up at 12:30 and it was
impossible. Easy to get in but too crowded inside!
Pez, Eltham, Sat Sep 24 15:34:32 2005
Best to go early 9-10 ish if its ur first time.. free and garuanteed entry and
cheap drinks.. also not as busy early and walking in at 1oclock ur first time
can be pretty indimidating.. DRESS HOT -as fashionably as u can or else u'll
feel like !.. but its an awesome place..

tammy, Wed Aug 3 18:31:45 2005
Thursdays nights at Seven can be really great if you get there before 10pm - its
free, and drinks are dirt-poor. The bouncers are actually nice before 10pm also,
they dont look at you like they want to hit you or something, its quite
Daniel, Parkville, Thu Jul 21 13:19:40 2005

favourite night out. will have to go back soon for sure.
stan, none, Thu Sep 30 15:14:16 2004
Went down to Seven last night coz I heard that it was the place to go on a
Thursday nite. Was there with my girlfriend to have a good time, but I was
rejected for no reason, apparently I just 'couldn't come in'. The group of 6
guys behind we were let in. It was interesting to see that all of the people
that had been rejected who were standing outside were 'ethnic' looking. I wont
be goin back, there are other places with better attitudes.
Tony, Oakleigh, Fri Sep 17 15:42:29 2004
HUGE!!! Best night in melbourne.
Pierro in main room best DJ going around. Cheap drink , great women and great

tommy, South Yarra, Sat Sep 11 12:27:56 2004
It is so much fun and i know heaps of people there, they have awesome music too.
Nicole, Bentleigh, Mon Aug 9 17:50:31 2004
One of the better night spots in melb, superb beats, drinks and ladies, however
dont expect an easy root here. Try to go in with some skirts to improve chances
of getting in. Dont bother inviting your mates from the country.
Justin, Malvern, Mon Jul 19 01:03:53 2004
the atmosphere is fantastic always have fun there!! and music is great 2!!!
Amelia, Mt Waverley, Fri Jul 16 02:45:54 2004
I have to agree with YT, thursdays are just impossible to get in on. Why they
have to be so stupid and fussy i don't know. I've been there twice before and
loved it...great place..but they seriously have to pull their fingers out on the
way they let people in.. they make the excuse that it's members only on thursday
nights when i've been in on a thursday anyway
Corey, Caulfield, Sat Jul 3 19:39:37 2004
Great crowd, great music, a really great atmosphere and people always seem to
be in good moods! The decor is especially nice
Sarah, toorak, Wed Jun 16 02:31:41 2004
Don't waste your time going to Seven... Thursday night headed out there after
Billboard and queued for about 20 minutes... after waiting for us to get to the
front of the queue a rude bouncer told us we can't get in cos of 'gender
inbalance' and i had too many male friends with me!?
YT, Sat May 8 16:57:20 2004
i love the party retro type room they have on thursday nights. heaps of fun.
caity, ringwood, Fri Apr 16 06:55:30 2004

wendal, Sat Feb 14 14:50:30 2004
A reasonable night down at Seven last night. Not exactly the biggest crowd ever
seen as Seven, and the guy-girl ration left a little to be desired, but good
retro fun was had by all none the less. The main room was not open, (just the
lounge - retro) but the DJs and the crowd in the lounge were all there to have
fun (not too many heroes or posers - always a good thing)
Scott Markworth, Melbourne, Fri Aug 29 16:36:17 2003
it has good music, 80's and the people are nice easy to get to and i always
have a good time without any hassle getting in
Lucy, vermont sth, Fri Jun 6 07:41:37 2003
Seven has the greatest variety of music i have ever been experienced to, the uni

Young crowd, cheap drinks and lots of dancing to all different kinds of music.
Alanna, essendon, Wed Mar 12 23:15:03 2003
seven would be a much better nite out if you could guarantee your whole group
will get in. not once have my male friends been let inside- clubs need both
sexes to be successful guys!!

The word for Seven on a Thursday is trendy. This venue explains how all those rave-fashion type shops stay in business. For guys, strictly cargo pants, sneakers, and clubby T-shirts, no collars. Girls for the look, from very classy through to very clubby. Basically dress comfortably to dance to a night of techno and house.

Seven was created September 1999 as a merger between the Redhead & Saratoga. These were two of Melbourne's trendiest and classiest venues, both with a fantastic reputation for pulling the greatest DJs from all over the world. Seven is similar, except that it is much more house/techno focussed, and the crowd dresses very club trendy.

Thursday represents the student night. The crowd is aged 18-22, and the primary catchment would be University students. It is a similar type of crowd (and night) to upstairs at Blush (Silvers Thursday), or the main room at Redhead.

We rolled in somewhere before 11pm. By about 11.30, there was a crowd there, and around midnight saw enough for upstairs to open. I left early, just as a Uni Law Ball afterparty rolled in - doh! That apparently filled the rest of the venue.

Seven has two levels, and three rooms. Downstairs (at ground level), features a striking entry which leads into the impressive looking, but smaller than expected main room. This room features a dark standing area (where you could dance) with some seating, based around the groovy bar on the left wall. The steps upstairs and cozy booth couches are on the right. At the far end of the long, narrow room, is a decent dancefloor, with good lighting.

The DJ and booth are placed on a stage at the back of the room, in front of a pretty impressive video screen. The DJ booth is designed to be seen from anywhere in the room, to cater for the international DJs that frequent Seven. There is a clear focus on the music and dancefloor.

Upstairs looks great. On your right, above the ground level dancefloor, is the moodiest room I have seen for a while. It is primarily a dancefloor, with a bar on the right wall, and DJ (Cue?) in the booth, surrounded by couch seating, on the back wall. He provides funkier house music, for people to groove to. Had you turned left at the top of the stairs, you would find a lounge room, with a pool table. It feels a little out of context with the rest of the venue.

I suppose the best way to summarise Super Thursdays at Seven, is trendy, driven by the fashion for house and techno music. Clearly it is designed to cater for those with defined musical tastes. It was good to visit a distinct, well designed venue.

Thursday night at Seven is for those people who love going to a club like no other. As the name suggests, it is open seven nights a week but Thursday night rocks the house. I went there for its opening (30-09-99), so everyone was there to check it out.

The majority were eighteen and nineteen year olds with a few handfuls of people in their early twenties. The peak of the night was at around 12:30pm. The crowd was a bit of a Redhead crowd, so it was good to see old faces again.

You can wear basically anything as long as you look neat and presentable. The actual dress code is smart/casual and they allow runners such as Cons, Vans and those good old Spice Girl shoes. People were dressed very comfortably. There were the usual guys in Helly Hanson jackets, and the girls wore a range of clothes from short dresses with high heels (as you do) to pedal pushers, runners and singlets. I found that wearing runners was very comfy for the type of music being played.

They have progressive house on the ground level, which includes a few dance numbers. This is where the big dance floor is, with some original lighting techniques going on. There is one section of the dance floor which is kind of like a stage, put aside as a ‘try-hard’ podium space. There are no actual high podiums to dance on, probably because everyone there is techno dancing and would just fall right off.

Upstairs they play deep house which is kind of funky. As well as a dance floor, they have a bit of a ‘make-out’ / ‘chit-chat’ room going on. The toilets are downstairs but everyone got confused with the signs of male and female: you will know what I mean when you go there. There is a bar upstairs and downstairs which does not mingle with the dance floors at all.

The drinks prices are a little below standard bar prices. For example, your Vodka and mixes are $3.50 before midnight and then go up by another dollar. They give pass-outs which is good. The cloak room has been reduced to $3.00 per item and the entry fee is $7.00, like the name of the nightclub, or $5 on a guestlist.

I personally went there to have a good night out and dance, dance, dance. I left there at around 3:30ish and the crowd was still strong.

Overall, it was a pretty impressive night with good house music and a massive screen behind the DJ showing a range of different still and moving images. I highly recommend it and may even get a door list there of my own one day.
