Welcome to Bird's Basement


Dinner and shows - Eat To The Beat at Bird’s Basement

Melbourne’s premier Jazz Club and Restaurant, Bird's Basement, is excited to announce new dining show packages as part of your overall multi-sensory music and dining experience!

The music is about to get sweeter, with option for food for all ticket classes except General Admission to purchase food packages exclusively through Bird’s Basement website.

Patrons have now the choice of pre-paying for food packages (which include great savings) and get priority on sitting allocation or purchase on the night at regular prices.

Patrons who have purchased the dinner show option will eat to the beat in an intimate and comfortable setting that was custom built for fine dining and excellent sound. Diners will choose any entree and any main from our seasonal à la carte menu for this special price with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options available on request.

Drinks and refreshment in the form of top shelf cocktails and offerings from our extensive beer and wine list are available from our friendly team of expert mixologists at reasonable bar prices for all shows.

Experience warm and efficient service and exceptional food, accompanied by the best in international and local music at Bird’s Basement. All items purchased online provide you with BBPOINTS credits. To learn more, click here.

Two Shows Per Night

Typically at Bird's Basement, there are two shows on most nights - a dinner show at 7:30pm and a 10pm supper show. Tickets for either show are non-transferable. If space permits, patrons of the early show will be asked if they would like to stay for the later show at no additional music charge.

Ticket Purchase

Tickets are sold directly through our website ticketing system. Seats are allocated on a first order best served basis. In other words, if you order on the day of a show going on sale you have better chance to get a better seat than if you purchase your ticket closer to the show. 

Once you’ve purchased your tickets you will be emailed an electronic copy of your tickets. You are welcome to print them, or simply present your phone screen to the hostess that will greet you at the door on the night of the show. 

Please note, puchasing tickets online will earn you BB POINTS which you can redeem with food and free concerts. To learn all about BBPOINTS please check the following video: http://birdsbasement.com/latest-news/bbpoints ... 

Early Bird's Program

From March 15, 2017 any ticket that is purchased more than 30 days in advance will credit you with 2 BB POINTS instead of 1 for each dollar you spend. 

Purchasing at the door/box office on the day of the show

Please note that buying tickets at the door attracts a $5 per ticket surcharged and no BB Points.
