Ballarat is one of regional Australia’s most bustling arts and cultural destinations. If you’re looking for a night filled with music and entertainment, look no further than The Cabaret Club. Located in the heart of the Gold Rush Mini Golf Theme Park and just ‘one song’ length away from the CBD, The Cabaret Club’s curtains opened late last year and has since being pursuant in presenting regular entertainment for all ages in Ballarat. Whether you’re into comedy, cabaret, motown, soul or pop, you’ll find it at the club.
Using previous knowledge and experience from booking for the former Suttons House of Music in Ballarat, Cabaret Club manager Dani Fry is committed to building the reputation of the charismatic and versatile venue, while simultaneously providing quality entertainment and acts from High School nights to big name artists.
“We offer a huge range of entertainment with performances from local High School Music Departments, VET courses and bands to acts such as Mick Thomas, Lloyd Spiegel, Beccy Cole, Rick Price,” Dani explains, “The room is also perfect for dinner show events, comedy and theatre.”
So far, the venue has already seen the likes of Johnny Rooster, Butterfunked, Motor City Sounds and Son Of A Gunzel, with many more to come, as well as hosting fun events like Stand Up Comedy for Kids and The Price Is Wrong trivia game show.
However, it was the concept of using the Gold rush Mini Golf Theme Park as the location for the Cabaret Club that truly makes this venue unique to our region.
“The room speaks for itself. It’s situated in the most unlikely of places, a Mini Golf Course,” she smiles. “It’s very characteristic and versatile and I saw the enormous potential for the room which is proving to be a great success.
“The Club itself is well suited to all ages, we offer entertainment for young children and also attract adults of all types depending on the vast array of entertainment we offer,” Dani continues. “As the club is attached to two 18 hole fully themed Mini Golf courses ‘Gold Rush Mini Golf’, we offer late night Friday mini golf, meals and music nights for families or groups that wish to combine this fun activity with live entertainment.”
Alongside the quality entertainment, the venue also offers a carefully selected list of tapas and matching wines – the perfect addition to any event. Kick back and indulge in a cheese fondue, produce board, fresh bruschetta or just munch on some warm olives and straight cut fries for the evening. The wine list covers all the good stuff, with reds like shiraz, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, to your white range of sparklings, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot grigio and the moscato if you like it sweet. And if you’re not into wine, it’s no sweat. They’ve also got the classics – beers, cider, spirits and a pretty epic list of delicious cocktails.
With music, comedy, theatre, golf, wine and tapas, this extraordinary room is an absolute must visit for the Ballarat region, offering quality live entertainment with something for everyone.
The Cabaret Club is located at 4/9367 Western Highway, Warrenheip.
