Section 8 Melbourne bar is a hip laneway CBD bar set in an old vacant car park between Lonsdale Street and Chinatown. Known simply as the ‘container bar’ because the staff serve drinks from a bar converted from a shipping container, the place is quite possibly hipster heaven, with graffiti-covered walls, wooden pallets strewn about in place of chairs, and steel drums for tables.
The food menu offers hearty dishes like burgers and pasta to keep you going through your night out on town. With live DJs every weekend, Section 8 has become one of Melbourne`s most popular bars.
Constantly abuzz with people and music, the Section 8 bar first started as a pop-up event but has grown so popular that it has cemented its status as ‘the pop-up bar that won’t die’.
It’s located in the heart of the city, but it has all the charm and quirkiness that you would expect from an up-and-coming hospitality hotspot. The bar is largely constructed with recycled industrial materials and decorated with red lanterns and street art – giving it a warm and festive feel.
There are plenty of imported beers to choose from, as well as delicious house-created cocktails for those who prefer to stick with something familiar. Section 8 Melbourne also hosts various events throughout the week, such as live music gigs. Be sure to check out this fantastic walk-in venue for your next night on the town!
