Bird’s Basement is a radiant, brand-new high-end jazz venue that opened in March this year.

Bird’s Basement is a sister-club of Birdland New York, inspired by the great Saxophonist Charlie Parker. They have both local and international artists, most of which are exclusive to the club.
 
Birdland New York was known for being Charlie Parker’s resident Jazz club in the 1950's and of course, his namesake. In addition to Bird, the club has been home to many famous Jazz musicians since its opening in 1949. As Alan Morrison, the long time editor of Ebony Magazine, put it, 'Birdland was both a cultural vantage point and a barometer of trends where all the big names in jazz performed'.

The club closed its doors in 1965, then reopened in its current location in 1986, and has since regained its place as the jazz corner of the world.

Melbourne is very proud to be the first of Birdland’s ventures outside of the United States. Bird’s Basement promises to be a stage of past, present, and future jazz legends.
