‘… No.86 tram will drop you right across the road from Open Studio, Northcote’s most entertainingly esoteric watering hole…

The room is overflowing with the kind of “vibe” that so many other bars are so desperate to harness‘ Clem Bestow – Epicure

‘Open Studio in Northcote, Melbourne is one of those rare and intimate venues that finds a groovy niche and just keeps providing punters with a great night out based on a simple formula of unique gypsy bands, booze and crepes.’  Flamenco Australia 


‘High on the hill overlooking the city is this hidden little gem, a cultural melting pot for Northcote’s artists, poets and politically passionate residents…There are savoury and sweet crepes to delight your taste buds, and a simple selection of beer, wine and spirits to quench your thirst should some spirited gypsy dancing take your fancy.’  

Northcote traders –  Northcote, it’s a little bit different.

‘.. The Open Studio is most definitely a hidden gem. It is the kind of place that invites you in as you walk by. It is not uncommon to hear happy music spilling out onto the streets, which invites you to look through the window...Just don’t expect any frills here, just a welcome vibe of a party in your best friend’s living room!’
