Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A training ground for the rockers of tomorrow now has food by Leonard’s

The Curtin’s band room has a full schedule of local, national and international acts and there are free live gigs in the front bar every Saturday arvo. Gig posters cover the walls and band stickers plaster the bar fridges, which chill glasses for craft beer on tap like Brooklyn, Barrow Boys and Two Brothers. For the past year the kitchen has been occupied by barbecue masters, Bluebonnet. With those guys relocating to the North Fitzroy Star, the kitchen is now in the hands of Leonard’s House of Love, where all your chicken-shop fantasies come true.

The Curtin hosts up-and-coming musical artists from DJs to surf punk bands, many hailing from Melbourne Uni, RMIT and VCA. This is the future of Australian music, and for providing a place for them to cut their teeth, the Curtin deserves a standing ovation.
