The Espy has always been, and always will be, the home of live music.
With three stages catering to an eclectic range of musical tastes, you’ll find everything from emerging local artists to touring international acts.
During the month of November, we’ll be celebrating Alfred Felton’s life through a pop-up museum on the top floor of The Espy shedding light on the little known story of his impact on Melbourne’s high art and low living.
For one night only Wil Anderson, Peter Helliar, Tripod and more join us for a night of belly aching laughs as we raise much needed funds for indigenous charity Red Dust.
100% of ticket sales will be donated.
Whether you want to enjoy a good meal, kick back with some drinks or take in a gig, there’s only one place to be in St Kilda – Hotel Esplanade. Fine food, functions, fun gigs and five levels of different bars, Hotel Esplanade has historically been one of the most popular bars in St Kilda.
The Espy kitchen is open for both lunch and dinner 7 days a week. If local seafood, pub classics, rotisserie meats and wood fired pizzas are what you fancy, our Espy Kitchen eatery is the perfect choice. We even offer a shared menu for large groups with a selection of seasonal hero dishes served to your table.
For some flavour-filled Cantonese food, our Mya Tiger restaurant proves a real treat. Think dumplings, Peking duck, inspiring cocktails and a Banquet Menu of some of our favourite dishes for large groups.
Bookings are advised for both of our eateries however we do leave a portion aside accept walk-ins too.
