workerslogo

Always great to see a venue opening rather than close. Respected Melbourne venue, The Workers Club and revered Geelong music bookers, Spinning Half have joined forces and announced the opening of Geelong’s newest live music and entertainment venue, The Workers Club Geelong.  Set to open on Little Malop Street in late March, The Workers Club will offer a top-notch live music experience & culture for artists & punters alike.

With over a thousand gigs under their belt and having hosted the likes of everyone from Slash to Lorde to Tame Impala, it’s no wonder The Workers Club Melbourne are thrilled to share the news of their expansion.  Paired with local Geelong music bookers, Spinning Half who have put on over 500 Australian and international gigs in Geelong including Chet Faker, Parkway Drive and Dan Sultan, the venture is sure to be a roaring success that is welcomed with gusto by the local community.  Over thirty live original music shows have already been booked in at the venue, with the first artist announcement (an international act) set to be released today.

“We are driven to provide Geelong with a sustainable and reliable music venue that can service the country’s touring artists, along with showcasing local talent, while focused on helping grow The Workers Club brand,” explains Spinning Half director, Steven Nichols.

“With Spinning Half’s years of local experience and street cred, it is obvious that us pivotonians love good music, food and drink here in the city of dreams,” enthuses Geelong resident born and raised, The Workers Club Melbourne co-owner John O’Brien.  “We are confident that this will tie in with The Workers Club philosophy and look forward to sharing our mutual love of music.”

With a distinct lack of small to medium sized venues built with the purpose of live music in Geelong, The Workers Club’s main goal in the fit out is to ensure the band room space is designed for music with everything else to flow on from there.  “Artist comfort, sound and punter satisfaction are our main priorities,” explains Nichols, “While we can’t have music and entertainment every waking moment, our other key focuses are on awesome food and great beverage options in a comfortable and versatile environment.”

No parmies, no cover bands, no nightclub dj’s and no TV, but the new venue will be showing all the Geelong Cats games on the projector!  The Workers Club philosophy:  Indulge in some amazing tunes with fellow music lovers, chow down on good grub, drink interesting beers, ciders, local vino and then safely retire to your beds satisfied, cultured, content and full of good vibes

The Workers Club will open its doors in late March. Address: 90 – 92 Little Malop Street, Geelong VIC 3220
