There's this bar. Actually, you've found it already, haven't you? Or else you wouldn't be here, would you?

Let us tell you a little bit about this bar.

This bar/venue is generally known as 303 (three-oh-three, not three hundred and three). Some people call it Cafe 303 or Bar 303. Or even 303 Bar. But it's neither of those. It's 303. Although, sometimes it's called Three-Oh, which we'll accept.

303 exists at 303 High St Northcote. It's been happily existing there for the last 10 years or so. That's way back when there were more second hand furniture and vacuum retailers on High St than pizza shops and night spots.

Ever since its inception, 303 has supported the live music scene, since that's what its inception was all about. A quality, no frills venue, that gives musicians and artists a place to be seen, heard and talked over the top of.

303 can be broken into two pieces:

  • The Front Bar - a glassy-fronted space, with a long curving wooden bar, loads of tables and chairs and a small stage to fit your acoustic and jazz acts. Sometimes we clear the whole space there, chuck a DJ up front, and throw drinks at you while you spin past, dancing like a person possessed. But mostly it's just a nice place to have a sit and share a bottle of vino, down a becks or sip on a chai
  • The Back Room - 303's featured space is an angled floor that leads down to our main stage with its newly updated sound system. This is the space where, more often than not, the real groove gets laid down. It's large, the carpet feels like lino in some places, there are couches galore and no one really looks at anyone else because the bands are usually too distracting.

These are the two pieces 303 can be broken into. Suppose you have a giant hammer. 303 could brake up into a lot more than just 2 pieces if you bashed it with said giant hammer. But who can even lift a giant hammer?
