The Moon Late Night Café is a Northbridge favourite for nocturnal locals. The William Street nightspot opened its doors in 1991, with an Art Deco interior and a fun op-shop style courtyard mixing up furniture and lamps from different decades. Grab a booth inside or head outside to the comfy couches and settle in for some late-night bites and laidback live music. Pizza, pasta and burgers are on hand to sate your appetite, along with the Moon’s signature desserts. Pick up a banana and honey dessert pizza with mascarpone, walnut and cinnamon, topped with a scoop of ice cream.
A bit of history:
“The Interwar art deco building at No. 323 William Street, Northbridge was constructed in 1930. Situated on a prominent corner of William and Newcastle Streets, it was the location of the popular dance venue known as the Blue Room cabaret in the 1930s to 1950s.
Local residents recall that at the time, as the tram stopped on newcastle street and slowly turned the corner into william street heading towards the city, you could hear bands playing old time music and watch couples gliding across the polished wooden floor to dances of the era such as the waltz, the quickstep and the pride of erin. children who were too young to attend the dances would delight in standing outside the windows watching ladies in long dresses and men in suits and ties.
In the early years the building was also a popular venue for ethnic socials and weddings and later occupied an ice skating rink on the first floor. In the early 1950s the Midland bus company took over the building for use as thier bus depot and more recently the building has been used for shops, offices & restaurants.” - credit: City of Vincent.
