Time Out says

When beloved Melbourne club Lounge closed in 2018, it sent tear-streaked eyeliner running and club kids scurrying to find a new space for an all-night boogie. Lounge had operated on the site for 29 continuous years, which is longer than many of its patrons had been alive. 

But hospitality veteran Maz Salt came to the rescue, taking over the Swanston Street site and giving it new life as Radar. Salt, of course, has a string of good-time hits under his belt, such as Ferdydurke, the B.East and Section 8

Radar focuses on catering to the dance music community, with a Function-One rig blasting until 6am on weekends. The club is also committed to supporting Melbourne's live music scene, so there are also occasional live shows. It’s kind of like Lounge, but Radar has its own personality. Reapply that eyeliner. 


Address: 1/243 Swanston Street
Opening hours: Wed 4pm-3am; Thu 4pm-5am; Fri-Sat 4pm-6am
