Pretty much the best rock n roll bar in the world

Weekly Events

Soul In The Attic
Every Thursday

Our weekly Thursday Soul in the Attic showcases emerging and seminal acts live on stage, followed by resident DJ’s (including Vince “The Prince” Peach of Soul Time fame) playing all things soul, funk, disco and classic 45’s ’til late! It’s not all techno in Melbourne.

2am Bands
Every Friday & Saturday

Every weekend you can catch a great live act at 2AM every Friday and Saturday evening! Cherry is now across two levels, so you can either grab a drink in our ground floor parlour or duck upstairs to catch a great act crank some amps… Only trick to remember is that a 2AM show is technically the NEXT morning that the date it’s listed on. So think of it like you’re still out past midnight from the night before to catch the show

Sunday Blues
Every Sunday

At our weekly Sunday blues session you’ll find very best local and International blues and boogie acts rockin’ the joint with two, sometimes three, sizzling live sets… It’s free entry with doors from 5PM and supervised children are welcome.

Upcoming Gigs
Tommy Stinson

Tommy Stinson

Wed 4 Nov

Tommy’s history has been well-documented, but here’s a quick primer: He first picked up a bass in 1978 at the age of twelve, urged by his guitar-playing big brother Bob. Together they formed a band called Dogbreath, which featured, among others, Chris Mars on drums. In 1979, when fledgling musician Paul Westerberg heard the racket they made blaring out of the basement of a house he passed on his way home from work, The Replacements were effectively born. Over the course of eight albums and extensive touring, the band made an indelible impression. The Replacements broke up in 1991 but their influence can still be felt to this day.

Since then, Tommy has made lots of music; Bash & Pop Friday Night is Killing Me (1993) and Anything Could Happen (2017); his more democratic and pop-ish band Perfect Once, Twice, Three Times a Maybe (2004); plus two solo albums – Village Gorilla Head (2004) and One Man Mutiny (2011). In addition, he was an integral part of GnR’s Chinese Democracy (2006) and two albums with his longtime mates, Soul Asylum – The Silver Lining (2006) and Delayed Reaction (2011). The Replacements also reared their heads again with cathartic and unanimously well-received reunion shows in 2013, ‘14 and ‘15. New recordings were made but ultimately scuttled.

When you listen to a Tommy Stinson record, under any moniker, you’re hearing rock n’ roll done by a lifer, someone who has literally spent three-fourths of his time on this earth touring and making music. If you subscribe to the theory that it takes 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in any field, Tommy Stinson has done that, many times over.

This is an 18+ event.
