A true Collingwood local, the Gem has remained true to its Americana aesthetic since opening for business in 2006.

With its wooden honkytonk interior, ranch-style furniture, and shrines to the memory of the late Elvis Presley, not only does it capture the warmth and friendly feel of a Southern American bar, it's married authentic Texas Barbecue with a range of delicious vegetarian dishes creating a truly unique Melbourne food experience.

Strap on your psychedelic space helmets and float downstream for this one. Established northside rhythm section The Putbacks take a few laps of the universe to deliver a full self-titled LP full of intergalactic interludes and grooves. Their collective experiences in a long list of local outfits, along with collaborations from afar, see the mood range from psych guitar-driven ramblings to interstellar lounge grooves in the echo of an ear.

by Kurt Vile


Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying Bottle It In, which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips. Every song, whether it’s a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos.

Established in 1869 and celebrating 150 years, this hidden beauty stands tall and proud as one of Melbourne’s oldest and friendliest pubs. Located in the back streets of Fitzroy about 50 metres from the thriving hub that is Brunswick Street you’ll find a warm welcome at this local institution.

Sample the fine selection of beers (over 100 different brews), try the wonderful cooking, enjoy the fantastic live bands or just bring a bunch of mates in for a beer and a game of pool in the spacious beer garden.
