Time Out says

This 1,600-seat Art Deco landmark has seating and a mezzanine, and plays host to a wide range of shows – everything from rowdy band gigs to giant dance parties and stand-up comedy revues. Spill onto Enmore Road for dinner and a drink after.

Keen on a kick on? The Town Hall Hotel is the spiritual home of grungy rockers and indie kids in Newtown and is open until late every night.


118-132 Enmore Rd

What’s on

Alan Cumming is Not Acting His Age

  • Musical comedy

Alan Cumming is a force of nature. He memorably, if briefly, brought comic book favourite Nightcrawler to life in big budget blockbuster (and still the best X film) X-Men 2. He’s also a fan fave in hit TV show The Good Wife, classic comedy Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, and you can binge him as a baddie in criminally underrated SBS show Briarpatch (go do it for free right now). Then there’s his stage prowess, with meaty roles in the classics including Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Macbeth, plus Samuel Beckett's Endgame. Our favourite however, might just be his take on the Emcee in Cabaret. And the Scotsman’s nightlife hot spot Club Cumming goes off in his adopted home of New York, with his glitzy, ritzy, host-with-the-most act also landing him in the hot seat as artistic director of the 2021 Adelaide Cabaret Festival. The term “renaissance man” barely covers it. Luckily for us, the Adelaide gig isn’t an arm’s length deal either. After his solo show was rudely thrawrted by lockdowns, he has just dropped a run of rescheduled 2022 tour dates for Alan Cumming is Not Acting His Age. You'll get to see him up close and personal when the solo show touches down at the Enmore Theatre on Saturday, June 11.  Get in quick, the first date sold out in a flash. It promises to be a bewitching night of showbiz, tunes and life-affirming laughs; an unashamed celebration of that most communal of pastimes: ageing. Age cannot wither his infinite variety. There’s simply no joyous sparkle quite
