The venue

The story so far...

Following a hugely successful 10 year stint in Drummond Street Oakleigh The Caravan Music Club has relocated to the South Oakleigh Club in the back streets of Bentleigh East.

Over the years The Caravan has attracted a legion of music loving fans by offering an alternative experience to sticky carpet and baby-sitter hostile late-night finishes. In its new locale it has a loungy vibe with candle lit tables, and a plush red curtain, which signals "showtime", framing the stage.

Peter Foley and his crew, with fantastic support from The SOC, have pulled out all stops to build a great music venue from the ground up with top notch sound and lighting production.

The adjoining Winnebago Lounge is a more intimate, ambient performance space with arty stylings - a cosy space which has hosted both local and international acts for some very special up close and personal performances.

Cheers,

No, you cannot record an artist’s performance. You would require permission from the artist and the venue as per the Copyright Act, as the performance is “owned” by the artist. The final authority to allow or not allow such recording devices on the night rests with the artists performing and not the venue.
