A popular Melbourne musician, Con Christopoulos has packed in a lot of work and play since arriving in Australia. He ran The European and City Wine Shop; as well as Kirk’s Wine Bar, French Saloon, Neapoli and Butchers Diner. Music is his passion, but he also loves good food – so it was only natural that he would open Angel Music Bar at the end of 2016. It’s located on Little Bourke Street right near China Town.
Angel Music Bar is a unique, two-level venue in the heart of Melbourne. Downstairs is a relaxed and intimate space, while upstairs is a smaller, soundproofed room with Funktion-One sound systems for those who want to get up close and personal with the music.
Offering an unrivalled drinks menu compiled by Christopoulos, choos from Dr Loosen, German Riesling, Victor Gontier, Calvados Dom Perignon and NV Krug Grand Cuvee, it’s the perfect place to indulge in a night out with friends. The cocktails are second to none, and the Italian drinks list is extensive and impressive
The eclectic mix of turntable set-ups means you can enjoy your favourite music in style. Head upstairs and you’ll find one of the city’s best-kept secrets: an intimate music venue with an exceptional sound system. Angel features an eclectic mix of turntable set-ups, from classic vinyl to modern digital, so you can experience your favourite music in the perfect setting.
You can only fit 80 people upstairs, so you’re guaranteed a great view of the action. And with Funktion-One soundsystems throughout, you’re guaranteed to hear every note perfectly.
Butchers Diner supplies all food and drinks through the hatch in the wall, and then passed to your table. You can choose from a variety of bar snacks like jalapeño poppers, pickles, nuts and olives, or hot sauces. If you’re hungry for something more substantial there’s also fish goujons; but if it’s not what you came here for we also offer some delicious dishes such as lasagne or prawn cocktail!
The place is also built for rowdy nights. Tables and seats are made to withstand pressure, and the seats are carefully held to the floor by bolts. It means that you can party all night long without having to worry about your furniture (or your butt). Plus, there’s no need to queue for drinks – they come right to your seat!
